The next few weeks are all about bridal style here on Bridal Musings, as we get the first glimpse of the 2016 wedding dress nz collections. (Eeek!)

But while we have a serious soft spot (or rather, obsession) for the gowns, we’re also pretty smitten with the accessories that go with them too.

And if there’s one thing that can take the most simple gown and elevate it to the next level or take an already stylised look and bring it all together beautifully – it’s a gorgeous bridal head piece.

And no one knows that better, than creator of unique, timeless, and elegant bridal accessories,What Katy Did Next.

Her latest, vintage-style collection (and the incredible shoot by Charis Talbot to go with it), is laden with beautiful pieces that range from the chic and simple, to the daring and fashion forward, from headpieces worthy of an old time starlet, to simple heirloom adornments you’ll treasure forever.

But before you swoon over her gorgeous creations, we’ll pass you over to the talented lady behind them, Katy Howieson, to tell us a little more about her latest collection, the shoot that inspired it and how you can bag an exclusive BM reader discount…


After the success of my Gold ‘Reign’ Collection launched last winter, I was lusting after a new project. When London-based vintage style girl group The Wild Tonics got in touch and asked to collaborate on a Gatsbyesque photo shoot with them I jumped at the chance and set about creating the ‘Lovefool’ collection. 

We compromised with a light, fresh and modern take on the theme – of course The Great Gatsby was a huge influence, but I tried to keep within my style at the same time and provide something new and different for my brides.

My aim was to create an assortment of versatile pieces that could adorn an array of bridal tastes from vintage lovers to fashion forward ladies.

I used quality materials and put my all into producing exquisitely detailed pieces stretching from statement deco caps to deliciously delicate hair vines and flirty glitter bands all with a varied price range.

Aren’t they so beautiful? I just love the Gatsby styling too, though What Katy Did Next’s accessories would really pair well with a simple or more modern wedding dress too, don’t you think?
