Our veiling is called Fine Diamond Veiling, and is exclusive to Richard Designs. Over the last 19 years, we have sourced the finest veiling to bring our wedding veils to the highest level of quality possible. The veiling that we use drapes very softly whilst still retaining its shape, providing you with the traditional bridal halo effect, combined with modern decoration and design. The veiling is particularly fine, meaning that it lies softly and will not irritate your skin. Our veiling comes in many different colours, some of which are shown below.
Lace is a timeless classic for bridal wear, yet it has remained fresh and innovative in its application. With over fifty veils incorporating lace, we believe that there will be the perfect style in our collection of wedding veils for every bride’s taste. Extensive research into the style and production methods of lace has ensured that our selection is of the highest quality and has the widest variety of styles. We have tirelessly searched for only the best manufacturers of French, Austrian and Belgian lace with fine quality our main requirement. The Leavers lace and Bobbinet tulle, which we have sourced from one of the finest lace, embroidery and Bobbinet tulle manufacturers in France, is sure to complement the exquisite designer gowns of the most highly regarded Designers in the industry, as they too incorporate this fine lace into their creations. You can see some examples of our lace veils here.
Sinamay is a unique and very special fabric woven from strands of Abaca bark. This forms a stiff fabric with a medium sized weave, and is ideal to create hats and fascinators from. The array of colours available is immense, and combined with the fact that we press all of our own hats to order, it is possible for us to create millinery in line with all the latest fashion colours. You can see our beautiful collection of hats and fascinators here – they are perfect for bridesmaids or the mother of the bride!
Silks & Organza
Silk Dupion and Organza are used in several of our fascinators and hat trims. Creating a softer effect than sinamay, they are used for decoration rather than the structure of items, and are often paired with similarly soft feathers. We are often able to carefully match organza and silk colours to your outfit.
