Monica, In Love

Monica and Kristjan’s dreams came true on the 31st of August 2018 when they said I do in front of their closest family and friends in Puglia, Italy . To the bride, that day was everything and it was perfect. It was a warm summer day in the old port town of Monopoli where they said their vows at the church of St Francesco d’Assisi. The party then continued at Il Melogranos secret garden with a cocktail hour under a field of 100 year old olive trees. Dinner, speeches, first dances and fairy lights took over the night till   sunrise. The day brought all the elements of things that make both me and Kristjan happiest; love, family, friends, sea, sun, music, food and wine.

Monica chose a flower hair crown from our summer 2018 collection, customized to match her floral lace dress. She wore it across her braided up do, it was just a perfect accessory to her bridal look.

“the headpiece was made to perfection. The element of surprise when opening the box to find a gorgeous piece of jewelry that spoke everything about the theme. It represented beauty, elegance yet extravagance complementing my dress and the olive leaves surrounding us. It was made for me! Raquel’s taste and attention to details made it the perfect custom made jewelry”

I wish Monica, my cousin, all the love in her new journey with Kris

Nada, I Do

When i met Nada i thought to myself, what a sweet heart! working with her on a headpiece for her engagement was just lovely. Wearing an orange retro inspired dress with a statement side bow by Bambah, we had room to add colored stones into the headpiece and the overall look was beautifully coordinated.

Surrounded by her nearest and dearest, the early summer day affair was so fresh and so full of love! Won’t you agree?

She created a day that was naturally beautiful, romantic and just perfect. But for me it was all about her hair! Her light brown locks were styled in an elegant half up do and adorned with a pearl and flower hair vine pinned at the back.

Myriam, In Love

Simple but significant was the wedding affair of Myriam and her Wagih.

Myriam’s sweetheart dress with textural trellis embroidery fit her perfectly, her long locks where adorned by a custom headpiece made of endless rhinestones and pearl details. But the prettiest accessory was her smile,  it’s so easy to see why it was love at first sight for us.

We also LOVE that the bride wore our trio of golden leaves hair comb in her pre-wedding night party. She rocked it!

Congratulations to the lovely couple

xoxo Raquel

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
