Bridal Wedding Capes: Three Looks

Bridal wedding capes seemed to making it big on the wedding scene at the moment and I am HERE for it! What a flipping brilliant idea they are! All the fun of a flouncy veil, but none of the irritations that come with wearing one! With a cape instead of a veil there is no need to hide your pretty bridal hairstyle. It’s also safer for your hair too. Veils often look amazing when they’re put carefully in place, but anyone who has worn one will know how quickly they get moved about. Every hug is a tug!

As with everything wedding related, there is LOADS of choice when it comes to capes and cloaks. Here are three looks I photographed last year as an inspiration starting point.


Emma wore a stunning Sassi Holford dress from Harrogate Wedding Lounge. This was paired with a gentle, flowing cape attached at the shoulders. The whole look was very light and floaty – just perfect for the venue and for their autumn theme. You can view more of their wedding on a blog here.


Jen and Jay had a beautiful micro wedding at Armathwaite Hall. Jen’s dress was (unbelievably!) from Next! I loved how she teamed up this beautiful beaded off-the-peg dress with a dramatic long cloak. You can see a similar high neck one here. You can see more of Jen and Jay’s wedding here.


Liz was SUCH a stylish bride (alongside a very dapper Martyn too!) Successfully predicting a key trend of 2023 Liz went for a huge neck bow with her dress and short sleeve cape coat. I loved how glam and extravagant this look was. It was also easily removed for crazy evening dancing! You can see more of Liz and Martyn’s wedding here.
