Wedding tiaras bring a regal edge to the romance of a wedding dress. Whether making a statement with whimsical silhouettes, or embracing the delicacy of luminescent pearls, opt for a tiara that can elevate a gown from beautiful to bridal.

If classic connotations are your bag, be seduced by the tantalisingly traditional design codes woven through Chaumet’s ‘Laurier’ head ornament. The tiara, which draws the laurel plant – rich in historical references – in brilliant-cut diamonds, brilliantly sparkles when paired with the joyful glitz of a Paco Rabanne gown.

For a spikier silhouette, consider Bibi van der Velden, who studs the peaks of her ‘Kryptonite’ tiara in brown diamonds, making it a sleek choice for the streamlined elegance of an Asceno jacket and dress.

Just as modern are the curved brass poppies of Christopher Thompson-Royds’ ‘Opium’ crown. Here, traditional flower references are turned on their head, their ephemeral nature given a permanence which makes this a chic and appropriate mark of lasting commitment. Paired with the overblown silhouettes of Molly Goddard Bridal, it is appealingly unexpected.

For a softer look, lean in to the radiance of Tasaki’s ‘Garland’ tiara, which frames akoya pearls in diamonds for a chic play on angles and curves, making a classic foil for the edgy frills of a Christopher Kane wedding dress.
