Designer Daphne Newman’s latest ‘Love Awakened’ collection, features 10 breath-taking couture veils. Each piece is handmade using silk tulle and exclusive lace sourced by Daphne on her travels to Europe and the Middle East.
Shot at an 11th century monastery in Umbria Italy with LANE favourite Lelia Scarfiotti, Daphne and her team set out to change the mood of the veil; focusing on the contrast of the feminine and ethereal details against the time worn facades of the ancient structures. Inspired by the rich history of Italy and her global pursuit of rare lace, Daphne’s vision was a unity of textural detailing and ornate silhouettes in the most traditional setting of them all- the catholic church. Demonstrating to brides and industry alike, that you can incorporate tradition without compromising personal style.
Each piece is designed to be kept by the bride as a timeless memory of her wedding style, and cherished as an heirloom for future generations- a rarity in our modern society of fast fashion. As the defining bridal accessory, Daphne encourages her brides to carefully choose their veil, as an honest reflection of their style and personality, and not simply an afterthought of the gown.
Love Awakened is available at stockist’s in Canada and the United States, as well as on her website. Additionally, all of Daphne’s collections can be found exclusively at SPINA Bride in New York City.

Amongst a sea of labels in the bridal industry, there are designers you stumble across whose pieces completely stop you. There’s a magic behind their work that’s hard to put your finger on, a passion you know comes from a deeply inspired place. And as you delve a little deeper into their story, you learn that it's a boldness these creatives share that separates their work. A desire to do things differently, to take the hard route if they have to, to create work that does justice to the ideas they dream up.
When it comes to boldness and passion, Daphne Newman has it in spades. Daphne's veils are inimitable, and the difference lies in the story imbued in every piece. Scouring the globe for rare European fabrics, Daphne creates designs inspired by the memories of her journey to find each piece of lace, and the people behind it. The result is a decadent, couture-like approach to veils, with intricate embroidery and delicate scalloped lace woven over diaphanous layers of tulle, or blends of beading and fringing that feel like wearable art.
Here’s a little peek at some of our favorites we recently shot in NYC. Head over to the Daphne Newman website to shop the collection or enquire about a bespoke piece that can be customised to suit your gown.

Playing to our love of all things celestial and shot in a landscape we left a piece of our own hearts in, on a little trip to Switzerland last year, the latest Naturae Beneath The Stars campaign exquisitely captures the wild alchemy of nature. Beautifully evocative and stirring, it’s a stunning example of the beauty found in moody palettes formed from wild weather, stormy skies and sweeping winds.
For those pulled by a celestial magic, adorn yourself in glacial inspired stones and celestial headpieces. Pair metallic crowns with featherweight veils, over delicate silks. Carry this lunar inspired mood through to your reception with volcanic accents in ceramics and flatware, stormy grey linens and luminous candlelight.
See the full collection and latest campaign on the Naturae website.

Capturer of energies, locked and worn lovingly over the heart, alongside the dreams of the mind, or adorning the enabling forces that are our hands, we love the symbolism and power of crystals and gems, especially in the context of the wedding day. Absorbing the love, honour, joy and positivity of the day in a beautiful memento for years to come, they make a meaningful exchange of gifts for bridesmaids.
Inspired by the ceremony of this time, the latest collection by Krystle Knight Jewellery, White Aura is brimming with pieces perfect for a bohemian luxe wedding and bridesmaids. To view more of the collection and to shop online (worldwide shipping) see here.

Beauty lies in subtlety. In the delicate, fleeting and imperceptible, not asking for attention, subsisting in elegance whether we’re there to observe them or not. With an emphasis on becoming the wearer (and not overwhelming) we love the delicate adornment of Jennifer Behr as a stunning heirloom memento of the wedding day.
