Calgary Bride – 5 Favourite Veils

I know that there’s a Calgary bride or two out there debating about whether or not to include a veil in their wedding ensemble.   Today I’m sharing my handpicked selection of bridal veil portraits.  I know that veils aren’t for everyone but there’s nothing as alluring as a bride, swathed in a layer of tulle.  I guess you could say that my camera and I enjoy a bridal veil.

Erin wore a full, elbow-length veil during this Tuscan-themed wedding shoot at Cilantro on 17th Avenue.  Her veil and dress were from Cameo & Cufflinks.  Her hair was styled by Erica from Artists Within.


Kassandra’s mantilla-style veil came from Frocks Modern in Calgary.  Her hair and make-up were styled by Lyana Gibert of The Art of Beauty.


Who doesn’t love a wedding photograph when the bride’s veil catches the wind?  See more from Samantha’s colourful wedding day in High River.


Let’s not forget the vintage-inspired, birdcage veil.  Nicole’s polka-dot veiling came from Britex Fabrics in San Francisco.  If you’re a Calgary Bride, don’t despair, it can be ordered online.  Her hair was styled by Tara Watts and make-up by Shea Brown of The Hair Studio in Okotoks.


Peek-a-boo veil shots are some of my favourites.  Here Clare adds a veil and accessories from A Vintage Affair to her bridal ensemble.  Her hair was styled by Tara Watts and make-up by Shea Brown of The Hair Studio in Okotoks.
