If a veil is not for you style your wedding dress with a tulle hair bow by Tulle and Flo at Limelight Occasions

Nothing says ‘you are getting married‘ like a wedding veil. That beautiful sweep of tulle has almost magical powers when it comes to reducing everyone to tears. Softly floating tulle is totally on trend so, styling your wedding dress with a statement veil or tulle accessory, has never been more exciting.

Wedding Veils – the Latest Trends

The wedding veil, like the tiara, has undergone an amazing transformation in 2020. A statement veil can now mean anything from a stunning cathedral length lace edge to the laid back pony tail veil. Our brilliant bridal and menswear stylist, Claire, is also the creator of the fabulous Tulle & Flo and is an expert in styling your wedding dress with a statement veil or tulle accessory so we are thrilled to be stocking her latest collections at Limelight. Claire designs and makes innovative wedding accessories right here in Yorkshire. Her ponytail veil makes a soft, feminine bridal statement. Wear it with hair tied back or flowing loosely for an effortlessly elegant look. https://www.instagram.com/tulleandflo/?hl=en

The ponytail veil is also a perfect choice if your wedding dress has a detailed back. The tulle parts softly to reveal beading, lace or a plunging back and blends simply into the train of your dress.

Veils are now embellished with gorgeous detail and can be customised to match your dress. If the skirt on your wedding dress is plain, add  iridescent sparkle with our breathtaking Nixie veil by Tulle & Flo. Play the video below :

Tulle Hair Bows

If a veil is not for you, make your bridal statement with elegant wedding wings, wedding cape or  bow. Here we show you some gorgeous options. If you love the idea of tulle in your hair but do not want a veil style your wedding dress with pretty tulle hair bow.

Angel Wings and Bridal Capes

Angel wings and bridal capes also make a stunning statement in tulle. Attached to the shoulders of dress, adding romantic drama to every move you make, wedding wings and capes can also be detached, giving you two looks on your wedding day.

I’m a great believer in serendipity – its amazing how it brings people together. Haley discovered Laser Made Occasions on a family day out at Emley Show. The team create unique personalised gifts, cards and decorations for Weddings, Birthdays, Christmas and all special occasions. They are primarily an E commerce business but decided to bring their products to the show so, as a bit of an afterthought, they designed a banner for the stand with their company name in fabulous sparkly letters. Haley is attracted to all things sparkly – it’s a family trait – so she stopped to chat to Tom and this is the result …

These beautiful ivory banners with sparkly graphite lettering now hang outside Limelight making our bridal boutique unmissable on the busy A624 between Huddersfield and Wakefield. We are so grateful to Christian, Liam, Tom and the family team who designed and installed them for us. The guys have a creative ‘can do’ approach to everything they do and go above and beyond to make sure everything is perfect including grinding rusty bits off the Lockwood Bridge …

and grappling with overgrown ivy…

Nothing is too much trouble for the guys who are currently in the process of designing new signage for us.

They designed and made our Lockwood Bridge sign in honour of a much loved dad and grandad, Frank Lockwood

and it is on this bridge that Limelight brides fasten a lovelock to celebrate that special moment when they find their wedding dress

and take the key away as a momento

Laser made occasions have also made an impact on the Limelight catwalk, creating a beautiful trellis for our bridal arch

which looks uber romantic covered in cherry blossom

and we especially love the sparkly Limelight Bride crates the guys made for our selfie props!

Laser Made Occasions have just launched a new range of personalised wedding favours, invitations, table decorations and guest books. Check them out at

Getting together with photographer Sarah Brabbin, florist/event dresser Jane (better known as the Woo B Woo fairy) and baker extraordinaire Jeanette Moorhouse for a photoshoot is always a great day out , because it means working alongside incredibly talented people to create… well … an entire wedding… while having lots of laughs – what’s not to love? All that was missing from the beautiful wedding venue in the Standedge Tunnel Visitor Centre was a groom!

Haley and I arrived with our gorgeous models Kaye, Sarah and Claire clutching armfuls of soft spirit wedding dresses to fit Jane’s boho brief, to find the others hard at work setting up the stunning Thomas Bourne room for the wedding reception. Jane was filling the grade II listed warehouse with flowers in this seasons colours and laying the tables with pretty vintage pieces, while Lisa was creating works of balloon art among Peter’s amazing light Installations. Jeanette’s mouthwatering cakes were sitting within circles of twinkling lights and greenery and Bev, the venue’s brilliantly organised wedding coordinator, was liaising with the boatman so our brides could arrive by barge. A quick change into layers of tulle and wellies and we were all set to take to the waterways.

Standedge Tunnel, Britain’s longest, deepest, highest canal tunnel is one of the seven wonders of the waterways and helped to fuel canal mania and our industrial revolution. The tunnel lies 194 metres beneath the stunning Standedge moors in the Yorkshire Pennines and the beautiful visitor centre and wedding venue was once the tunnel warehouse storing coal,wool and grain ready for transportation from Huddersfield to Manchester.

Sarah had already been on a reckie of the waterways and chosen the locations for the shoot so the girls hitched up their dresses and we all clambered into the barge that now transports brides on their wedding day. These are the stunning results:

The combination of industrial and rural landscape makes Standedge a unique photographic location.

                           

                   And then it was up to the ceremony room beautifully lit and dressed by Peter, Jane and Lisa …

                       

Which gave us the perfect opportunity to shoot the custom made veils that Claire designs and creates.

And finally it was down to the Thomas Bourne room where all the after ceremony fun takes place.

               

Loving the dreamy evening light…

             

Huge thanks to all these very talented and very lovely people, to the wonderful Sarah Brabbin for her amazing photography and to our stunning models Sarah, Claire and Kaye. Sending lots of Limelight love and congratulations to Kaye, Kyle and Archie … our very favourite photo of the day…xxxx
