Dress shops have a selection of veils that go with anything and match nothing. It's going to be in every photo - your veil can and should be more than an after thought
Based in a 500 year old thatched cottage just a stones throw from the Cotswolds, Sophie designs each piece by hand. Since launching the brand in 2017, Sophie has taken her business from making veils in her bedroom to being stocked in 6 retailers, featured in Vogue and most recently working on celebrity weddings covered in OK magazine. She works internationally with brides from all over the world, to create pieces that are designed from the heart, one of a kind and as unique as the brides who wear them.
Her meticulous eye for detail teamed with a unique design aesthetic makes Unveiled by Sophie the go-to wedding veil designer. With over 25 years of sewing experience, Sophie's passion for perfection is combined with a genuine love for the industry. With the creation of artisan pieces, Sophie makes women feel beautiful and puts the focus on realising their vision and enhancing their confidence. She prides herself on offering a deeply personal service, whether you're spending £100 or £10,000.
Designing veils is more than a sketch.
It's about real connection, that depth of understanding with a bride, and creating a piece that will not only be beautiful on the day, but treasured in years to come.
Sophie started her career at the prestigious Royal Opera House, as the very first Costume & Footwear Technician Apprentice. During her time she gained a wide range of expertise working with the unparalleled quality of the costumes and knowledge of those working in Covent Garden. She spent her final 6 months in the sewing workroom, learning and honing her craft from some of the best makers in the world.
After completing her apprenticeship, Sophie went on to become a seamstress at a bridal boutique in Central London, learning the couture techniques. She then landed a job making costumes at Robert Allsopp & Associates - widely recognised as one of the leading costume-prop companies in the world. Here she created costumes for TV, Film & Theatre. She specialised as a milliner creating headdresses for Disney's Aladdin, creating over 150 intricately beaded headdresses for four new productions around the world. She then went on to create the headdresses for the 2019 live action remake of Aladdin, starring Will Smith.
I get to make women feel empowered and beautiful. In a world where we're so often pitted against one another, I think that's really special.
In the summer of 2022, Sophie married her husband Prash, in a Civil & Hindu Ceremony. He has since joined the company as its COO, as Unveiled continues to grow and flourish. At the heart of Unveiled by Sophie is a genuine love for style, couture techniques and making women feel empowered and beautiful.
In her spare time, Sophie loves renovating her cottage, brushing up on her carpentry skills by creating one-off pieces of furniture and learning the piano. She and her husband enjoy exploring the local areas, going on long walks and frequenting pubs around the Cotswolds.
