When the occasion calls for a big hat. 

My 'Palais' hat is feminine and romantic and bold. Featuring beautifully handcrafted silk peonies, each petal shaped with French millinery tools, delicate vintage French feather wisps and luxe leather leaves in a rich aubergine colour. 
She will turn heads and deliver a little bit of drama to any outfit.

I absolutely love receiving wedding photos from my brides. <3 They are the icing on the cake after appointments, fittings and pickups, wondering how everything turned out on the big day. 

When Lauren's email came in with lots and lots of photos (even better!!) I couldn't wipe the smile off my face. 

Lauren's photos are magical, beautifully captured by Katie Grant Photography​. They capture the essence of Lauren's bubbly, wonderfully sweet personality and the love her and Tom shared on their wedding day. 

Lauren shares her very special day over on her blog and you can see all the prettiness and wonderful details put together by a cracker of a team of Perth local suppliers. I particularly love the intimate garden reception and the dessert table - YUM!

I love working with brides to create one of a kind headpieces for their weddings. Whether it be traditional or a statement piece, each headpiece is designed to complement the individual gown and personality of the bride. 

Just like no two people are the same, no two Holly Barker Millinery headpieces are the same either! I want my brides to know they have a unique headpiece to wear on their wedding day and also a special keepsake to hold on to forever. <3

Veiled //

Veils are definitely making a comeback with today's brides. 
Not only do they instantly distinguish you as the bride, but opting for a veil gives you a little bit of extra drama when you enter your ceremony. 

Whether you choose a simple, barely there veil, or a more traditional cathedral length number; there are lots of elegant choices to suit your gown and your wedding day. Plus they make for some fantastic photo opportunities too!

Add a pop of colour in your headpiece with red handmade blooms, dusky pink crystal beading, or lush black velvet ribbon. If you love a particular colour, why not include it!

Choosing a headpiece can be a tricky thing, here Holly shares her tips for choosing the right headpiece for you.

Thanks to First Comes Love Fair for the blog.

So excited to share my gorgeous bride Annaliese's wedding day which was published on RuffledBlog.
Annaliese's custom Holly Barker Millinery headpiece was stunning - golden Swarovski crystals, delicate tendrils and pearls, designed to complement the detail in her silk gown. I had so much fun making this intricate vine headpiece and Annaliese loved it! 


So many great suppliers helped Josh and Annaliese put this super cool wedding together with photos by the fab Amanda Alessi Photography.
