These amazing veils, tiaras, jewellery and boleros are hand made in their factory in Ely in Cambridgeshire. It’s so unusual to find British made goods these days so I’m very happy to be a Showcase stockist for this company. The quality of the workmanship combined with excellent customer service makes Richard Designs the leading accessories supplier in the UK.
Every item is hand made to order meaning that we can customise to suit your requirements. Headdresses and tiaras can have the band covered in a floss to match your hair and the pearls and crystals come in many different colours too.
Rainbow Shoes and Perfect Bridal Shoes
Style over comfort? On your special day the last thing you need is sore, painful feet. The Rainbow Shoes I stock are very comfortable with lots of padding but are also very stylish. They can be dyed to match your dress or outfit completing your ensemble. After your event Rainbow will dye your shoes free of charge from a choice of ten colours, meaning you can wear them again.
I decided to stock Perfect Bridal shoes as their designs are so beautiful and a little bit different. They use exquisite lace to create a more vintage look. These shoes can also be dyed to match your dress.
Bespoke Hat Designs
We are very lucky to have the talented and creative talents of Elizabeth Jane who makes the most amazing hats, hatinators and fascinators. Liz has been making spectacular headwear for many years and you will see some of her handiwork in the Royal Enclosure at Ascot. Once you have chosen your outfit, you can choose from several designs to be made in colours to match.
The most obvious bridal accessory is a veil. Most brides are adamant that they don’t want a veil but when they see how perfect the right veil looks with their dress, most change their mind. After all, it is the only time in your life that you get the chance to wear a veil. The veil should enhance the beauty of your wedding dress by providing delicate sparkle or exquisite lace edging. The most popular length is 72 inches, which falls just above the back of the knee, but more and more brides are choosing full chapel (126 inches) or cathedral (144 inches) length, which flows effortlessly behind. Whichever veil you choose, it’s important that it is sheer enough and doesn’t hide the beauty of your dress.
A belt can change the whole appearance of your dress. You can chose from sparkly crystal, delicate lace, or silk flower designs to enhance the style of your wedding dress. For a simple lace design wedding dress, a crystal belt can add glamour. For a simple elegant silk wedding dress, a delicate lace belt can soften the look. For the Boho Chic garden party style wedding, silk flowers on the belt to match headdresses works really well.
