Tell us a bit about your brand…

AW Bridal offers unique wedding veils and accessories, including earrings and bags. The brand was launched in 2017, and strives to deliver unique pieces for modern brides. AW Bridal takes inspiration from classic styles, fashion forecasting and trends to create pieces to suit each bride's individual style. Every piece is handcrafted in England.

How did you get into the wedding industry?

I worked in couture millinery for almost 10 years before I started AW Bridal, so a lot of the customers for this were mothers of the bride and groom. I loved hearing about the amazing weddings being planned and always loved hearing about the bride. It seemed to me there just wasn't much of an offering for brides looking for something unique and modern for their accessories. So I started AW Bridal to create headpieces and veils for cool brides looking for interesting accessories.

Are there any bridal accessory trends we should look out for?

I think headbands are going to remain popular. Shorter dresses worn with long veils is a look I love seeing. Hopefully we’ll see even more brides throwing caution to the wind and choosing more unusual pieces, or creating multiple looks for the various celebrations happening.

What advice would you give to brides struggling to choose their bridal look or accessories?

If they’re finding it hard to decide on a style, they can get in touch with a photo of their dress or outfit and I am always happy to discuss options and styles and what I think would work for them. If they can’t choose between styles, they can always create multiple looks- a lot of brides go for a somewhat more ‘traditional’ veil for the ceremony and then change into a headpiece for the evening. Accessories are a great way to create different looks without having to fully change your outfit.

What is your favourite part of your job?

I love creating bespoke pieces for brides, working out what will suit them and work with their outfit is so much fun! And I love seeing photos from the big day!

What are your 3 favourite veils from your collection?

My 3 favourite styles are probably ‘Leopard’, ‘Hedy’, and ‘Brigitte’ (pictured left to right).

Tell us about anything exciting coming soon?

I am working on a new project, its secret for now but make sure you’re following @ashleywildbridal and sign up for the mailing list over on my website to be the first to find out! I’m looking forward to getting back to hosting pop ups and private appointments soon.
