Hi and welcome to my page! I’m Michele and I’m the designer and proud owner of Atlantic Bridal.
I have always loved all things creative and I am slightly detail-obsessed! My background is in Fashion Design and I was delighted to be chosen as the Irish Nokia Young Fashion Designer of the Year award in my Graduate year. One of my passions is to travel, I find it so inspiring, so I spent some time working in product development in fashion houses in London and Sydney, before returning home to Ireland and setting up my studio in the most picturesque little corner of the world, in beautiful Bantry on Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way.
When I was getting married, I searched high and low for the perfect bridal headpiece. I wanted it to have the perfect blend of romance and elegance with a modern feel and when I couldn’t find what I was looking for, I decided to use my design skills to create it myself and so, Atlantic Bridal was born. This photo was taken of me on my wedding day: I was the very first customer of Atlantic Bridal and I haven’t stopped creating since!
I am so grateful to be able to work with so many wonderful brides to create their dream piece that perfectly complements their unique style and creates that perfect finishing touch to their bridal look! Each piece is lovingly made my me, by hand in my studio, using only the highest quality materials and with the strictest attention to detail. I handcraft every delicate flower, taking care that each individual petal is perfectly formed, before wiring a little beaded stamen into the centre of each flower.
If you are excited about the prospect of designing your own piece or you have any questions about styling, I would be delighted to help you, please send me a mail. I look forward to chatting with you.
