Natalie, In Love

2018 was a good good year! I met so many awesome brides and i want to thank them all for choosing to wear one of my designs on the most important day of their life. For the brides i never got to meet, i thank you too. A 2018 favorite look is just impossible to say, when every piece i make has just as much love and passion put into it as the other, how can i chose? But i can say that 2018 had one major professional and personal highlight, the wedding of Natalie and Michel. She is one of my closest friends and i was one of her bridesmaids, i was also pregnant but i danced all night in heels, i guess i was high on the love and energy that day.

Natalie for those who know her well, would describe her as half princess half unicorn. She lives for the magic of love with a colorful and sassy edge. So when she asked me to make her a princess crown fit for a unicorn bride, my heart dropped because it was unlike my character and unique to my designs. But how could i not grant her one wish from me?

Here are a few pictures from Natalie’s big day! Wearing a custom Belles By Raquel crown

Shereen, In Love

If eyes could talk, her eyes were singing.

In the most beautiful setting on the northern shores of El Gouna in Egypt, Shereen and Nader celebrated their love for each other in what could be one of the most enchanting weddings ever. Maybe it was her dress, her hair, the decor or her smile, Shereen’s look was breathtaking and i will let you see for yourself.

Shereen wore a pearl hair vine with gold details to match her ethereal dress and long locks

You, Me and Italy

Congratulations to the gorgeous Anri who wed her beau in a picturesque Italian wedding. The bride wore a beautiful organza dress with gemstone embroidery gathered at the waist with a tulle skirt by Pronovias.

Her hair styled in an elegant low bun was adorned with a pearl hair vine from our Golden Serai collection.
