Mother’s Day special

6 May 2017
/ / /

Most of the time, families are very involved in weddings – some will even say too much! But there’s no denying parents and siblings can be a great help when it comes to putting together your wedding, especially mothers. Over the years, I have had the pleasure of of working with mothers of the bride on different occasions. For example, I remember this mother of the bride who ordered the wedding hair accessories for the whole bridal party! Or another mother of the bride who gave her own bridal headpiece (from her own wedding decades ago!) so we could use it to create new wedding hair accessories! And also, a mother of the groom who worked around the couple’s indications so her headpiece would reflect their favorite sports teams. How cute is all these stories?!

So with Mother’s Day coming up, I wanted to celebrate mothers – so why not kill two birds with one stone? You can now take advantage of a special promotion on our suggestions of wedding hair accessories for the mother of the bride (and groom!) with 25% off til the end of Mother’s Day! But hurry : quantities are limited!

Just use the code Mom2017 when ordering to get the special offer!

Photoshoot coming soon!

8 April 2017
/ / /

Phew, between the wedding season (and the orders for bridal accessories!) upon us and preparing for the launch of Capelio’s 2017 fashion collection Murder Mystery, there is less time to update the blog! I still wanted to write a post to tell you about the photoshoot of last Sunday with the photographer Cathy Lessard, makeup artist & hairdresser Camille Savoie and our model, the beautiful Andréanne.

Those who follow Capelio on Facebook and/or Instagram will remember that recently we were looking for a model to participate in this project: we selected Andréanne and the photoshoot unfolded in an ambiance of fun and laughter! The idea behind this photoshoot was to show how it is possible to wear an accessory several different ways and with several different looks. Camille did a great job and I can’t wait to show you the pictures!

The result will be the subject of an article on Capelio’s blog that will show how you can completely change your look with different accessories, make-up and hairstyles – also, I think it may inspire more than one bride on how to wear your wedding hair accessory after the wedding day!

For now, I leave you with few behind the scenes pictures!

Wedding trend : Rustic vintage weddings

10 December 2016
/ / /

Here’s an early Christmas present : the gorgeous pictures of the wedding photoshoot that took place few weeks earlier! The pictures arebreath-taking and I’m sure they will inspire you for your wedding! With all the rustic weddings we see on Pinterest, wedding blogs and the likes, it feels like there’s nothing original about it. And true, we’ve seen so many mason jars adapted in every way possible for that particular wedding theme, but looking at those pictures will definetely convince you a small wedding with a DIY-feel has a lot of character!

Indeed the first ambiance of the wedding photoshoot we did had a rustic ring to it, but there was also a very strong vintage vibe. It worked well with the Batinse, the restaurant where the photoshoot took place. It shows how even with a small, simple venue it’s still possible to create a breathtaking atmosphere for your wedding. Melanie Vallerand was the one who coordinated the whole thing – you can see all the talented professionals who made this possible right after the pictures!

The bridal look

I love how the wedding dress come from a regular women’s fashion store : not only is it gorgeous but it would be also easy to wear it after the wedding. To go with this bridal dress, we paired our Anastasia birdcage veil, made with a lace piece on a comb with an ivory veil. It was perfect to create a look that was both timeless and romantic. Also just like the dress, you can wear it afterwards simply by cutting or folding the veil!

A new week, a new photoshoot to take part in! In fact, this time, the planning and coordinating of said wedding photography session was the work of Mélanie Vallerand, photographer and wedding coordinator in Quebec City. A team of Quebec wedding professionals gathered together for this wonderful creative wedding photography session and, of course, Capelio was there!

Our Anastasia lace headpiece with birdcage veil was used for the first look, and the second was with our Simplicity veil in an ivory version. It is both a pleasure and a pride to lend our creations for a wedding photoshoot with so many talented people sensitive to the slightest detail!

I’m so excited to see the final photos, but we’ll have to wait until December! Some lucky people may have already seen the preview shots that were published on Facebook and I guess you know the result will be breathtaking. For the others, here’s a preview :
