Fashion hair accessories at the Morrin Center

7 November 2016
/ / /

Yesterday we made the photoshoot for Capelio’s next fashion collection!

To organize a photoshoot for a new collection is always tedious: you want to surround yourself with the best people who understand your vision and who you can trust, you want to create an atmosphere that reflects the artistic direction of the collection and of course, you want to create breathtaking  photos that will inspire your clients. The process often involves many questiones you ask yourself, with a lot of stress and emotions, especially when you’re a perfectionist. In fact, a designer recently told me that just before her own photoshoot for her new collection, she felt none of her clothes were up to what she had envisonned because of the stress. So it’s not just me then!

But in the end everything went well, largely thanks to the talented people involved who all did a masterful job. So it’s really important for me to thank them properly here :

Angela Baughman and Olivia Eadie of Castle Coiffure;

Simon Trudeau, filmmaker;

Yvon Latulippe, photographer;

Camille Lavoie, makeup;

The models Audrey, Rebekah, Emilie and Charo;

Manon Fortin of the Morrin Center;

And finally Sonia Plourde, designer, for lending us her amazing clothes!

I thank them all from the heart for their incredible commitment, their immense talent and their great cherfulness! Not only did we all worked together to make beautiful photos, the day was also incredibly fun!

The wait until May 2017, when the collection will be launched, will be difficult… But you’ll get a chance to see few previews here and there on our Facebook page, as well as a special Instagram account created especially for the collection : @murdermysterycollection Make sure you also subscribed to our newsletter so you don’t miss anything :

Black birdcage veil and feathers hair piece

1 October 2016
/ / /

Even with wedding season stretching later and later in the year, autumn often means the start of the creative process for the next collection of wedding hair accessories, as well as our limited-edition special collections, like the Butterfly Effect this year and the Pin-Up collection before that. Of course, the creative process never really stop : we’re always picking up new ideas, listenning to our customers’ desires and needs, getting inspired by materials, pictures, movies and the like.

Autumn is when you take it all in, start playing with the materials to do what will become eventually the samples of the next wedding and fashion accessories collections, plan the photoshoot and all the communication tools. During this creative process, sometimes there are accessories that won’t make the final cut even if they’re beautiful and we love them, because sometimes the material is in short supply, we already have similar pieces in the collections, etc.

While we were working on the next limited-edition fashion collection, to be launched in May 2017, we created a beautiful black birdcage veil with feathers on a hair clip. While we do love it and it would work well with the follow-up collection to The Butterfly Effect, unfortunately because of the material used we couldn’t make more than one piece. Look at this beauty :

But good news : it is now available in our “one of a kind” section on Etsy! Like the summer/autumn flower crown with red flowers, you can get it now and you will be the only one in the world to own this beautiful creation!

Its classy look means you can wear it to many events with elegance and style. Get it quick : not only there are only one available, but this bircage veil is perfect for a Halloween party!

Bespoke headpiece for the mother of the bride

21 June 2016
/ / /

Here’s a perfect example of how we can adapt one of the existing design of our online store to create a bespoke headpiece for you!

A mother of the bride whose daughter is getting married on the 15th of July came tous few weeks ago because she wanted to have a fascinator to complete her outfit. Not too sure about the exact headpiece she was looking for, she browsed Pinterest to collect ideas. After she got in touch with us, it appeared she wanted something similar to our design Ireland hair accessory on a fascinator base.

Not only that, but this mother of the bride had some lace and material pieces we could use from leftovers cut from her dress. Because she was based in Montreal and we had to work on her bespoke headpiece at distance, we exchanged lots of pictures to make sure the final result fit her taste.

Here you can see the process :

We used two pieces of lace material to add to the fascinator base. We created a pink ribbon with leftover fabric of the dress to included in the ”Ireland” form. And voilà! A bespoke, unique piece that perfectly match the tastes and the outfit of this elegant mother of the bride!

Flower crown with a veil for the bride

11 June 2016
/ / /

Weeks ago we received a request from the friend of a bride on Etsy, asking if we could add a veil on our Gabriella flower crown for a bachelorette party in New Orleans. (Sounds like so much fun, right? How lucky is the bride!) We happily obliged, of course. Here’s the result :

We added a 35cm-long version of our Simplicity veil in a way that made it possible to slide the veil on the crown to position it so it would perfectly suits the bride and her hairstyle. Not only that, but we made it so that after the bachelorette party was over, it would be super-easy to simply cut the veil without causing any damage to the flower crown, so the bride (or one of the bridesmaids!) could wear it with a summer dress, for example!

I’ve seen few pictures of brides wearing flower crowns with veils on Pinterest which made me think that probably other brides would like the same thing. What do you think? Is it something you’re considering for your own wedding?

It could be very interesting for a bride to wear the same flower crown as her bridesmaids, but with a veil in order to set her appart. If you’re thinking about that kind of look for yourself and your bridal party, make sure to get in touch so we can create the wedding hair accessories of your dreams!

Eloping in Quebec City

4 June 2016
/ / /

You’re planning to elope to Québec for your wedding? You will love the romantic atmosphere of the city, its historic sites and its magical character! The elopements, these weddings celebrated in small groups abroad, are increasingly popular and Quebec City is a destination of choice for many couples. However, in an elopement, as with any wedding, good organization is critical to the celebrations are to your taste and do not experience problems.

Simplify your elopement

Why not save yourself an extra detail to carry with you and order your bridal accessory to be delivered directly to your hotel? This way there is no chance of panic in case you’ve forgotten your veil or headpiece at your home, as happened with one of our brides.

Just shop your wedding hair accessory, order it in our online store stating that the billing address (your home) and the delivery address (your hotel in Quebec) are different and write them with care so there’s no mistake. Also ensure you order your veil or headpiece with enough time so nothing is rushed. Ideally, the order should be placed at least a month in advance, although it is sometimes possible to make accessories in a few days if needed.

Remember also that it is possible to make hair accessories for your bridal party, and even for your guests: not only will it be a very nice thank-you gift, it’s also a hair accessory they will wear during the ceremony and reception, as after!

Worldwide

You are planning to elope but to another city than Quebec? No problems: Capelio ship worldwide! Again, simply choose your accessory sufficiently in advance and specify the shipping address is the location of your elopement. As easy as that!

Inspiration and recommendations

Look at these weddings to inspire you with beautiful venues in Quebec City for your elopement :
