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.

An alluring juxtaposition of elements, we’re loving the collection of ethereal pieces by Elle + Adhira. Perfect for brides with an affinity for the unexpected, each piece flirts with opposition, simultaneously light and dark, soft and strong, elegant and exotic. Think delicate veils crafted from English net tulle that shroud the face and skim the floor, iridescent earrings of clustered crystals and intricate crowns exquisitely crafted…

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.

If you're trying to decide on the perfect veil to enhance your bridal gown take a look at this video from designer Vera Wang. Vera talks brides through some of the very important design choices to think about when choosing a veil...
We love the idea of pairing Lanvin's Faux Pearl-embellished Silk-blend Tulle Veil with a shorter gown to create drama and romance. The cathedral, floor sweeping style makes for stunning photographs. If you are looking for a more refined and classic, bouquet length veil have a look at Lanvin's Organza-appliquéd Tulle Bridal Veil.
