Persephone - A very versatile birdcage veil

April 09 2015

" Today we are spotlighting our beautiful Persephone birdcage veil. She is one of the more popular Silver Sixpence In Her Shoe headpieces and has given us many a beautiful real bride over the last 2 years."

We designed this birdcage veil to be versatile from the start. She is working with blonde and dark hair, with updos or down dos here in our Blush collection shoot on our 2 models.

She has been used on shoots in many different ways too. A dreamy romantic south of France shoot by the lovely Katy Lunsford and a high fashion editorial styled shoot can be seen here too.

We have sent this headpiece out to places as far as Australia, New Zealand, Norway, Ireland and and the USA as well as to lots of UK brides. It was when we started to receive thank you images back from our brides of their own wedding style that we started to realise just why she was so popular. It is definitely down to her versatility. She is worn in so many ways and with so many different dress styles. Some of our brides have been quite casual choosing lace slip dresses from the high street and some have chosen full on bespoke gowns. Some of you like to be traditional and wear the birdcage right over your eyes and some of you like to wear it across the top of your head with it just skimming the eyebrows. Since we can offer a bespoke service too with our brides we are able to include a favourite brooch or work to a colour requirement. For example with our Irish bride Fiona who wanted a pale ivory pearl instead of the usual darker vintage gold toned pearl we have used on so many of them. So we sourced a lovely pale pearly tone brooch for her. How cute is the picture of her and her Dad together here.

Here is a collection of some of our lovely brides we have had the pleasure of working with in the last few years on this headpiece. It’s been such a pleasure.


We have recently added Persephone in vintage diamante to our collection. 

She too can be styled in so many ways and you can see here we did a fantastic Vintage Glamour styled shoot for some how to wear ideas with our friends over at the Vintage Beauty Parlour. Persephone looked fantastic with loose finger waves and glam red lips!

This summer we have our 1st Vintage diamante Persephone bride- can't wait to see her pictures! Our Persephone birdcage veil headpiece is available to buy online or we can work a bespoke version for you- just email To see more of our real brides hop on over to our Pintrest board
