On Sunday, February 28, 2016 was held the Grand Wedding Event at the Fairmont Le Château Frontenac. The event, now in its 3rd edition, brought together various wedding professionnals. Florists, celebrants, wedding planners and many more was on site at the mythical venue of Quebec City to meet with brides and grooms. And of course, Capelio was there!
Obviously Capelio was also on hand to provide headpieces, veils and fascinator for the bridal fashion show. And the result was beautiful! Many of our headdresses from the 2016 collection were included in the looks, as well as hair accessories from our previous collections.
Capelio also created a chapel-length version of our Simplicity veil, which stylist Justin Bellavance and coordinator Valerie Larrivée embellished the morning of the event with real flowers provided by the company Fleur d’Europe. The result was stunning :
And it’s not all! Capelio also realized another custom bridal accessory for the show. Indeed, at the request of the coordinator of the event, we made a necklace :
A veil with real flowers, a custom becklace : I hope it gives you, future brides, ideas! Maybe those accessories for the bride will be included in upcoming collections, but in the meantime, remember that if you like this kind of pieces, we can create them for you as custom accessories!
Capelio had a booth in the ballroom, where brides could see, touch and try on our wedding hair accessories. It was very nice to chat with them to know what style they were looking for, how they wanted to look for their big day, as well as their needs for the bridal party.
I was wearing a Butterfly Effect headpiece and many loved it, even if it wasn’t technically a bridal accessory!
As expected, the 2016 edition of the Fairmont Le Chateau Frontenac’s Grand Wedding Event was incredible and delighted many couples who attended to be inspired and to plan their big day. Among other things, I was very happy to see Angela of Castle Coiffure, who sometimes collaborate on our blog. Her booth included a ”braid bar” to offer brides and their guests the opportunity to have their hair did. And I had the chance to get my hair did :
There was also the wedding photographer Jonathan Robert, who had made the beautiful wedding photos of Esmeralda and Ian’s wedding at the Château Frontenac. I also got to talk with Mireille À Deux Invitations: soon we will have a special service to offer brides-to-be, stay tuned ladies!
