Floral millinery for your special occasion 🌿

We began hand crafting our delicate fabric flower millinery from our Church Street dress shop, where they became a favourite of visiting brides to be and festival faeries alike. Since moving our business completely to The Old Workshops, we have created an opulent haberdashery brimming with silk ribbons and velvet millinery flowers in our guest house office, where we create our famous flower crowns.

Choose from a selection of beautiful designs in an array of soft colours on our Etsy shop, or work with us to create something quite unique for your special occasion.

Our sumptuous and bohemian floral hair accessories have been popular with brides since the very beginning, and we regularly take commissions for bespoke crowns.

Join our Shepherds Purse brides and choose a free spirited accessory for your special day, designed with your personal vision in mind.

Bespoke bridal millinery 🌿

All our bespoke flower crowns and hair accessories are handmade in our courtyard at The Shepherd's Purse. Custom designed for brides, or for any other special occasion, we have a beautiful selection of flowers and a wide rage of vintage style beaded trims and ribbons with which to create your design.

Our team will collaborate with you using experience and knowledge to bring your vision to life. We consider our clients our friends, and our attention to detail shows just how much we care.
