Add a heavenly finishing touch to your wedding dress with Yelena Smirnova`s exclusive floral headpieces from her new Gilded collection. The collection was inspired by the natural beauty of summer flowers with reference to the opulence and glamour of the Belle Époque era.

Delicate roses and daisies and beautifully stylized pearl lilies of the valley combining with intricate beadwork lace motifs evoke an unforgettable romantic spirit while gold plating detail accents create a luxurious feel with a splash of elegance. For brides who are looking to tailor their accessories to their gown, most headpieces can be recreated in specific colours and silver accents.

I’m 36 and I read fairy stories – magical tales of enchantment and adventure, myths and legends, from Tolkien via Harry Potter via Kelsingra… because I love fantasy, creativity and escapism. Unashamedly. And these floral hair accessories by the amazing Yelena Smirnova are right up my street – beautiful flowers to wear on your wedding day, with more than a dash of all the beauty to be found in adult fairy tales. My favourite is the Rosalie hair comb… which is yours? Here’s Yelena to welcome you to her world…
