A recent discovery of mine this year at White Gallery London (and a very lovely one at that), Nymphi produce and hand make bridal accessories including veils, intricate lace caps, floral and flapper inspired head pieces, detailed sparkly sashes, cuffs, collars, head and shoulder pieces.  Their latest collection is designed for a woman who knows what she wants, who is fashion aware but not bound to follow it; she knows her own personal style.

Sound like anyone you know, Brides Up North?

Nymphi say:  You never really need to search for inspiration, inspiration finds you. This may have something to do with where the company is based. With rugged mountains cascading down to crystal seas and the traditions and mythology of the ancient Greeks, a simple glimpse out of the window or a historic tale from an old friend can and does bring inspiration every day.

The 2014 collection, which pays homage to women of the 1920’s and 1930’s and their daring style choices, as well as the romantic, bohemian spirit of the hippies, uses a lot of French cotton lace which is a favourite of ours at the moment and we love to use it in unusual ways.

The Nymphi 2014 collection has such a variety of styles there is something to go with almost any gown. Many pieces compliment a more classic look whilst others are for those who prefer a vintage style and of course there are a few pieces for those who would like to be a little more ‘edgy’.  With the feel of the 1920’s and 1960’s the loose-haired bohemian, natural makeup and vintage 1920’s hair and makeup styles will look fabulous with many of our pieces and whilst many others would suit the classic bridal bun.

Our main signature pieces are our Juliet and veil caps as they have a very distinctive Nymphi style and we love creating them. Our new range of shoulder pieces are also fast becoming something that Nymphi is well known for, as they allow brides to turn a dress into the one they dreamt of by adding the desired feel to the neckline.

.

Naming our pieces is easy, we look at the piece and what it says to us and then we look to the past and the legends of the ancient Greeks and the name just speaks to us.

Nymphi is mainly a wholesale company, but we really enjoy creating that special piece for someone who is specifically looking for something different and therefore we are happy to offer a bespoke service.  Nymphi retails from around £30 for one of our cuffs, for example, but can go up to more than £1,000 if you wish to have a cathedral length silk veil; the collection is very diverse.

Nymphi pieces are quite different from other accessories because designer, Varvara Dimitrea, likes to create things that have never been seen before, using material in ways that are unpredictable and this gives a distinctive style to all Nymphi pieces.

Varvara’s journey to her love of design was not the conventional route. Born into an artistic Greek family and raised in Chicago in a culturally and socially infused environment, her life has been heavily influenced by both the multicultural urban setting of the city she grew up in and the rugged Mani Region of Southern Greece where her family originated from and where she eventually settled.

.

Varvara, like all members of her family, has a very artistic soul and found freedom in creating semi-precious jewellery. After creating a custom piece for a close friend that was getting married, a friend suggested to her that she should make bridal accessories. She quickly realised that this was her calling and Nymphi Bridal was created.

Nymphi’s philosophy is to enjoy everything that we do and love everything that we create, and as such every day at Nymphi is a joy. Our work is our passion, our love and our life – everything we ever dreamt of.

We don’t consider Nymphi as work, for us it’s life and we love it! Our plan for the future is to grow the company and spread our Nymphi wings worldwide.

The best things in life for us are our family and friends who support and guide us every day and for who we are grateful and thankful. Secondly, we get to wake up every morning and do something that we love to do with people we love to work with – and when you really can’t ask for much more – we get to do all this in a place that is so beautiful it’s a daily inspiration.
