Jessica Beattie Millinery New Enchanted Bridal Collection

Emerging vintage-inspired designer, Jessica Beattie, is launching her inaugural bridal collection Enchanted – set to be a winner in bringing old-world romance back for the modern bride.

Trained by acclaimed milliner, Neil Grigg, the Sydney-based designer’s new bridal collection Enchanted – a selection of headpieces, veils, and handmade silk flowers – will continue her handmade tradition, tailoring pieces to each bride’s unique day.

“This collection is a tribute to the most important day of your life. Enchanted is the place where old-world romance is in vogue and where the waking world meets the wedding of your dreams,” says Jessica Beattie. “Wearing a headpiece at your wedding is the difference between being a stunning bride and an unforgettable one. A flower in your hair may wilt towards the end of your special day. Having one of my coutureheadpieces, lovingly handmade, will last. And the good thing is, you can wear it again.”

Soft and delicate in detail, Enchanted uses handcrafted luxury materials and bead work – the same bead work used by the house of Chanel. The Deluxe range of silk flowers is handmade in Australia, and can be made-to-measure, using the same fabric as a wedding dress, in any colour or size to suit a theme.

Jessica Beattie Millinery is dedicated to giving clients a bespoke service. As part of the bridal package, customers can use the service after the wedding to adapt their headpiece for other occasions such as casual or race wear.

Collection details: With over 60 pieces in the collection, prices range from $130, for a standard handmade flower on a comb, to $1,500 for a cloche – an intricately-detailed beaded cap.
