I could look at these photos for hours. I think that’s part of the magic of Clare Lloyd‘s creations: the intricacy of what Clare makes and the tiniest details make her bridal accessories so captivating. Today’s blog captures a stunning bridal collection by Clare alongside the most beautiful styling touches from some of our favourite wedding brands. In this post you’ll find inspiration for a modern luxe bridal look with breathtaking dresses, amazing stationery and glorious florals. It’s the hair accessories which have my heart. In Les Fleurs Clare Lloyd weaves the tiniest of glass beads with delicate white gold leaves and handcrafted flowers in pastel shades on layered twists of soft gold, creating these stunning heirloom pieces for her brides.
“Les Fleurs is a collection of some of my most intricate and delicate floral headpieces yet. The designs continue the floral and botanical themes of my Aurelian collection and take inspiration from British Flowers from the late summer and early autumn. I have introduced delicate colours and lots of gold – the gold of the late summer sun with pops of coral, mint, teal and delicate whitened gold and pastel enamels.”
“Each design is made to be as versatile and flexible as possible. Combs are always popular so I have introduced some new floral comb designs in various sizes along with matching hair pins so you can combine pieces and create your own unique look. I’ve also made some of my most elaborate and extravagant statement crowns for this collection.
This is my first all vegan collection so I haven’t used any freshwater pearls at all just natural metals, glass and crystal. The silks that I use are now made from bamboo.”
