MEET THE MAKER - LACE+BLUSH
Offering handcrafted wedding veils, hairpieces and belts, with bespoke options available and worldwide shipping, Lace + Blush is the perfect place to look for a unique bridal accessory. It all began in a sleepy village deep in the heart of the Cotswolds by Rhiannon Parker, a trained dressmaker and designer.
And here at the write wedding we went behind the scenes of Lace + Blush to find out all about the beautiful business and a little bit about Rhiannon too.
Just take a look at some of Rhiannon's beautiful work...
MEET THE MAKER: RHIANNON REVEALS ALL ABOUT LACE+BLUSH
DESCRIBE YOUR BUSINESS IN THREE WORDS...
Unique, elegant & personal
WHAT DO YOU DO AT LACE+BLUSH?
At Lace+Blush we create unique hand crafted bridal accessories, this can be anything from veils to hairpieces to sashes. I design some myself but I also work closely with my brides to help them create their perfect bespoke accessory.
WHY LACE+BLUSH? WHAT’S THE STORY BEHIND THE NAME?
The idea for the name Lace+Blush came from the materials I frequently use as an accessory maker. I am constantly surrounded by beautiful textured laces and reels of tulles in all the colours ranging from ivories to blushes.
WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO START LACE+BLUSH? AND WHERE DID IT ALL BEGIN?
I am a dressmaker by trade and saw a gap in the market for bespoke bridal accessories. Lots of brides that would come to me for dress alterations, would also ask if I new anywhere for veils or hairpieces. I simply replied ‘I can make that for you’ and the business began before I had even thought of it.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE THING ABOUT BEING THE OWNER OF LACE+BLUSH?
I love being able to create cherished pieces that become a special part of my bride's wedding day and knowing that some may even be passed on to future generations.
IF YOU COULD PICK ONE OF YOUR PIECES AS YOUR FAVOURITE, WHICH WOULD IT BE?
My favourite piece would have to be the daisy veil. I love simple designs with a twist. The veil is based on a classic hand cut edge to which I have individually stitched chiffon flowers to the bottom giving the veil texture.
