Danani handmade adorments

LITD ~ Danani Collection and Loblee Photography_0000

There is nothing that I love more than discovering new talent and bringing it to you all, especially when focusing on one of my favourite bridal items ~ the headpiece. Today it’s all about Danani, an online store selling handmade adornments for brides based in Utah but selling internationally (and the UAE is on her shipping list, I checked!)

These pieces are simply beautiful and strike the perfect balance between elegance and red carpet glamour. If you’re after something completely unique Danani also offers a bespoke option so you can create the perfect piece to compliment your dress. 

In her own words, “Danani, bohemian at heart but in love with all things glamorous. You could not pin my inspiration at one point on a timeline, everything vintage speaks to me and each piece in the collection was inspired by the most fashionable women of a bygone eras. Whether the vintage voice is literal or subdued every Danani piece down to the last detail radiates timeless one of a kind style, meant to be a representation of you on your wedding day.”

Captured by the lovely Loblee Photography, I hope you enjoy these pieces as much as I do.

Feather crowns

My new favourite thing is a crown of feathers on brides. I honestly can’t get enough.

Now this might seem a tad too much for some brides and I can completely understand why. I don’t think that I would have had the guts to whip out a feather crown. But I wish I could say I would have done.

The thing about your wedding day is that sometimes you can get far too caught up in how you think you should look rather than how you actually want to look. So if a feather headdress floats your boat too then I say go for it with gusto. Or at the very least whip one out for some portraits. Strike the boho vibe and look sensational whilst doing it.

Now lets see if any of these feathered headpieces get your lust glands going like mine…..

Short Veils

Short veils are perfect for so many brides and even though I opted for the long cathedral veil, it does not stop me from yearning after the sweet and short ones! Perfect for both modern and vintage dresses, short veils complete the look of so many brides.

If you are in the UK, Lilly Bella is one of the leading supplier of birdcage veils and offers many different styles and variations so if you are considering one then definitely check out her website.


Birdcage veils can both be ultra modern and chic or finish off a vintage look perfectly.

Cathedral Veils

I never thought that I would be a ‘veil girl’ and if I did have one then it would be a short simple one. Well, all that changed when I started trying dresses on…the long veil always seemed to ‘complete’ the dress I was wearing. I sweated it out for a bit (they do not come cheap) but alas, my love was cemented when I saw the bottom right picture. Bam, cathedral lace edged veil it had to be!

If you’re in turmoil on the long-vs-short veil I am sure that this collection of images will help; who doesn’t want to stand in a field and let 2 1/2 metres of delicious tulle swoosh behind you? I know I do!
