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.

How to style your wedding dress with this season's trending tiaras to make the ultimate bridal statement

How you style your wedding dress says everything about you as a bride. Here we show you how the latest tiaras will help you make the ultimate bridal statement this season. This blog is part one, of a three part series, on how to style your wedding dress with statement wedding accessories to be published weekly. In parts two and three, we look at how to style your wedding dress with the ultimate in veils, capes, wedding wings and jewellery.

Limelight’s beautiful wedding tiaras veils  are designed and handmade right here in the UK with custom options available.

Statement Tiaras

Tiaras are big in every sense of the word right now with truly creative pieces designed to express your individuality. The Wild Romance and Modern Love collections, by the amazing Debbie at Arianna Tiaras, are so refreshingly different they have our Limelight stylists absolutely buzzing.

The Everlasting tiara is our all time favourite… a halo of pearls… the ultimate in bridal romance and completely unforgettable! We fight over who gets to model it.

Style your wedding dress with Daisy Chain headband AR 609 for a festival wedding vibe. This is Haley’s favourite piece from Arianna’s Wild Romance Collection because it’s a fresh, confident twist on a tiara and works perfectly with a boho dress for a barn or woodland wedding. Jane loves the Vida headband AR 640 because it is stunningly simple and soooo stylish. Team it with Vida drop earrings ARE 640 for the extra WOW factor. For relaxed glamour, style your wedding dress with the Zephyr headband. These strands of twisted pearls look amazing if you are wearing your hair long and down on your wedding day. Claire adores a headband and relaxed glamour is definitely her thing.

Hair Sparkle

If you want your hair sparkle to wow from the side or back view, style your wedding dress with these stunning hair vines, combs and pins…

The Everlasting hair comb AR631 matches the Everlasting tiara and oozes statement romance  – pure class!

My personal favourite here is the Fiji veil comb. I just love the exotic gold leaves and ivory enamel flowers intertwined with pearls and crystals. It reminds me of sun, sea and gently wafting palm trees which is just gorgeous for a beach wedding. Rita loves simple sophistication and the Purity pearl pins are the perfect way to style your wedding dress for this statement retro look. Beautiful golden leaves wrapped around multi sized pearls create a magical half halo in the Aurelia hair vine. Jane and Haley are likely to be seen around the boutique in these golden leaves because they work beautifully on both blondes and brunettes. How amazing would it be to wear Aurelia in a woodland at sunset? It can even be combined with the Aurelia headband to create a customised circlet to channel your inner goddess!

If you are into flower crowns but also love a little bit sparkle, then check out this Stunning tiara…

For the size and feeling of a flower crown without the commitment to fresh flowers, style your wedding dress with the Larspur tiara AR601 this beautiful, tall, delicate tiara with handmade branches of pearl and crystal and matt enamel flowers … the ultimate in bridal statements.

Venue Address

The Metrodome, Queens Ground,Queens Road, Barnsley S71 1AN

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

By popular request, Giles Turner of Eternity Bridal, returns to Limelight for another eagerly anticipated designer event that has our brides queuing up to find their wedding dress with guidance from this renowned bridal stylist. An expert in his field with an impressive resume, including television appearances, Giles has helped literally thousands of brides to pick the perfect bridal gown, travelling the country with the latest styles hot off the Eternity bridal catwalk.

    

Giles CV includes styling brides in his own, very successful bridal boutique, before joining Eternity bridal as Sales Director responsible for working with independent bridal boutiques  – hosting catwalk shows to help them select the very best gowns from the brand’s latest wedding dress collections and advising on the latest trends with styling tips guaranteed to turn heads.

The Limelight team have always enjoyed working with Giles. He is fun, and dare we say flamboyant? He gives honest opinions – totally telling it like it is – and our brides love him not least because he has an uncanny sixth sense about which dresses will look truly amazing on them!

Giles and his CEO, Amanda Bradwell are passionate about their bridal industry and especially about making sure that brides receive an authentic, top quality wedding dress.

Passionate, committed, fun, flamboyant and honest – what more can a girl ask for in a totally talented bridal stylist?
