Whispering from the Mist

Bridal silk flower veil headpiece – Anna Chocola® 2017

“He heard her in his heart – whispering from the mist.” John Geddes, A Familiar Rain

Model: Georgina/ Photos & Styling: Anna Chocola

Here’s a selection of new more bridal and occasion headwear. I’ve started making my own silk flowers to use on my Flower Coquette hats or on their own as pretty headpieces. This is just a small selection and all of them can be remade in various colours, with or without a birdcage veil.

It was a perfect day for a photo shoot, as a thick sea mist blew onto the beach surrounding us. The light was soft and the atmosphere very inspiring.

A romantic day dream of the past

Les plus rares fleurs
Mêlant leurs odeurs
Aux vagues senteurs de l’ambre,
Les riches plafonds,
Les miroirs profonds,
La splendeur orientale,
Tout y parlerait
A l’âme en secret
Sa douce langue natale.

Extract from L’Invitation au Voyage de Charles Baudelaire, Les Fleurs du Mal. (Full poem and translation here)

Models: Alice & Ella / Photos & Styling: Anna Chocola

Hats modelled: Luxe turbans (£75), Origami headpieces (£55), peacock feather headband (£55), Inès cloche hats (£65).

Petit Jardin headpiece & Flower Coquette pillbox hat – Anna Chocola® Brighton MIlliner

I’ve been working on some new colourful “Flower Coquette” pillbox hats and a new headpiece/ brooch combo piece. I’ve called it “Petit Jardin” because it’s like wearing your very own little flower garden in your hair or as a brooch!!!

I took my models to beautiful Brighton beach for a new photo shoot.
