Bridal Hair and Bespoke Welsh Accessories


Here at Coco Bella Bride we are big fans of the lovely Vanda Hoare and her beautiful, hand crafted bridal hair accessories.

Vanda has been designing highly individual and bespoke bridal hair accessories for more than 20 years at her shop, Simply Gold, in the heart of the Welsh Valleys.

We were thrilled to work with some of her pieces on our recent photoshoot for new bridal boutique Pritchard & Moore – where all profits are donated to Cancer Research Wales.


Vintage inspired, hand-crafted hair accessory by Vanda at Simply Gold


The perfect bridal hair accessory should compliment your wedding dress and bridal hair style but never overwhelm the bride.  The rose-gold tones in this Gatsby-inspired piece beautifully enhance the bride’s hair colour and skin tone.

It’s not essential to have decided upon you bridal hair style before your buy your hair accessory – in fact your choice of accessory can often influence your final hair style for your wedding day.

One individually-crafted statement piece can bring your whole bridal look together and can work especially well for those brides who prefer not to wear a veil.

Make sure you bring your chosen hair accessory to your bridal hair trial so you can have a ‘dress rehearsal’ and get used to how it will look and feel before your special day.

It is crucial to choose a bridal hair accessory that not only works with your wedding dress but also suits your own personal style – chose something as individual as you are.

Don’t be afraid to experiment before you commit. You may have an idea of what you want but might surprise yourself when you try on different pieces.

Most important of all it should feel comfortable and secure. Make sure you find a bridal hairstylist who is experienced in fitting and securing bridal hair accessories.The last thing you want is to be worrying about a hair accessory slipping or worse still falling out when you are about to say “I do”

If you really want to rock your wedding hair accessory then have one specially hand-crafted and fitted to your head shape for the perfect look and fit for your big day.
