WEDDING VEILS BY DAPHNE NEWMAN
So, who is Daphne Newman? Well, Daphne herself is Canadian by birth and she’s spent her life in love with exquisite fabrics and couture design.
“I have an overwhelming desire to understand the story behind every piece of lace. This desire is what leads me down crowded streets in far reaching locales, where I have the opportunity to understand and get to know the people behind it. The moments and memories I collect on each journey are delicately woven into the details of every piece I create, and lend themselves to the reason why I carefully, and meticulously craft each piece by hand. It is my hope that once it’s yours, it will unfold into a beautiful story of your own.”
In 2015, Daphne’s daughter Raquelle Kilotaitis joined the business. With her knowledge and experience, the Daphne Newman brand has pretty much redefine opinions about wedding veils. This deeply traditional bridal accessory has been given one hell of a makeover.
LOVE AWAKENED BY DAPHNE NEWMAN
Just take a look at these images and then try and find the words to describe how stunning these veils are. It’s almost impossible right? If you ever thought wedding veils were a bit boring and a bit meh, think again. Just the words ‘silk tulle’ have got us on our knees. Then, we need to talk about those embellishments too. Perfection doesn’t even come close. Really, can you just imagine wearing one of these veils? How incredibly bridal would you feel? There are actually no words…
We are so thrilled to showcase Daphne Newman here on The Bridal Edit because finally, someone has made veils into statement pieces again. There’s always talk about a statement dress or statement jewellery but when did you hear the phrase ‘statement veil’? You haven’t have you.
