One of the most important roles of being a full service wedding accessory house is that complete lines of bridal veils are offered. Since a large portion of my sales come from veils, it has always been a vision of mine to create an informative page on my website to help brides understand the many choices available when choosing their veil.
So much thought goes into deciding what gown to wear so when it comes to choosing the veil, it is important that the veil is in proportion to the gown & the bride’s personality.
Of course I enlisted my gifted team Caroline Tran & Victoria Rothwell of Moira Design Studio to help with the details.
Many thanks to Jen from Green Wedding Shoes for featuring my new English Rose Collections for Fall 2014/ Winter 2015 on her fabulous blog today!
I am overwhelmed by the response from this collection. From brides to large retailers, I have been very busy with all sorts of projects & filling orders.
I have spent the last 7 years re-inventing myself & my bridal career back into how I originally started, which is a small creative business with a focus on my style with every detail from product, packaging & promotion. I am so content with the wonderful pace of growth & progress.
Please take a moment to visit Green Wedding Shoes to see my entire new collections beautifully captured by Caroline Tran with gowns by Sara Janks & Jenny Yoo with the help of Theresa Huang on hair & makeup & Hey Lady Shoes.
Don’t forget to comment, share & post.

I am so happy to present a few of my favorite images from my recent photo shoot with Caroline Tran, featuring beautiful gowns from both Sara Janks & Jenny Yoo. It was so kind of both these talented designers to lend us there beautiful dresses that go so well with my headpiece & veil collections.
This year’s inspiration was based on my coming venture into the world of scents. After reading Justine Picardie’s Coco Chanel The Legend and the life, I knew I had to develop a pure oil perfume that I would wear myself on a daily basis. I knew the moment I decided to do this, what my scent would be based on, the ever classic & seductive English rose.
For generations, my family history has been entwined with the wonders of the garden, and roses have always held a special fascination. My father was a particularly gifted gardener; once retired, word of his talent for cultivating exquisite roses spread and found him designing cutting gardens to grace the yards of Hollywood celebrities.
My dear father’s talents have inspired me to develop a strong passion for roses, in particular the very fragrant English rose. The English rose was always on my mind while designing this season’s collections. You will see handmade silk flower crowns in delicate soft blush colors, romantic long French lace trimmed veils & delicate fashioned crowns in my 2015 wedding season collections.
I’m delighted to contribute to this shared family history with the creation of Eglantine, a pure perfume oil that’s a sophisticated, modern take on the timeless floral scent. To create a private label perfume that captured this intoxicating garden smell, I collaborated with a master perfumer. After extensive testing and many formulations, we were able to create the signature scent so cherished by my family – the rose, reimagined, with a darker floral heart.
My goal was to create a custom perfume oil with the same design sensibility as my bridal accessories, a captivating scent that aligns with this most romantic time in a woman’s life. Science tells us that our sense of smell holds the most powerful memories and triggers emotions that last a lifetime. My wish is for you to build your special moments and make them unforgettable with Eglantine.
Sample vials will be available for purchase soon!
Many thanks to Theresa Huang & her adorable team on hair & makeup and the beautiful Anjelina Afanasyeva from Next.
