Effortlessly Chic New Zealand Wedding

One of the big reasons why I love having an online business is because of all of the amazing and beautiful brides I can work with all around the world like today's Real Bride, Bekah. Her and husband Ben's special day was held in Palmerston North, New Zealand. Their wedding day feels elegant yet down to earth. How gorgeous is the crisp, classic navy bridal party and the organic, lush florals against the New Zealand landscape?! Effortlessly chic is what comes to mind when scrolling through their stunning photos.  Bekah opted for one of our ivory mantilla veils in a floor length and with a drop-veil style blusher.

New Zealand's remarkable views offer plenty of scenic backdrops for your wedding day.

Harriet's big day was surrounded by nature's beauty and a family's love.

An English Wedding: Real Bride

This gorgeous English wedding is homey yet elegant and wrapped in sentiment and tradition. Real Bride Connie met her husband as a student in Bristol, England. They were next-door flat mates, and as most love stories go, the rest is history! Before reaching out to me, Connie was interested in the fingertip length Carolina Mantilla but was unsure if it was the right mantilla veil for her dress. We corresponded back and forth through email; as she was commuting home from work on the tube and I was just getting my day started. After she sent me pictures of her dress, I knew the Carolina Mantilla was the perfect choice for her! It's our most popular veil because it has...

Malta is a small island in the middle of the Mediterranean with panoramic views of beautiful limestone-colored buildings against the blue sea. Any bride lucky enough to have such a gorgeous European island as a back drop is sure to have stunning photos!

One the best things about the having The Mantilla Company online is the ability to reach so many brides worldwide. Stacey opted for the Gabriella mantilla veil in white which...
