Juniper & Grace create dreamy and often vintage inspired handmade wedding accessories made with love in Australia.
Wedding veils, wedding accessories, wedding combs and belts, all made with love, aww.
Why not take advantage of our terrible, terrible Australian exchange rate?


CURRENT DELIVERY TIME ONCE DISPATCHED

Within Australia: up to 7 business days due to the recent reduced AusPost services. More often than not, they arrive within 2-4 days but please allow up to 7 just in case of postal delays.
United States, United Kingdom, Europe; on average 3-5 weeks. Customs delays are HUGE at the moment when leaving Australia.
Asia and New Zealand; On average 2-3 weeks.
Please keep in mind that Australia Post doesn't offer tracking as standard, it's an add on option only and can be purchased internationally.

All items will be shipped in a rigid flat mailer or bubble mailer. We have found in the past that sadly when posted in a box the veils and capes often move and scrunch up in transit. Posted in a flat mailer the veils maintain their shape. I'm sure all brides will agree that maintaining the shape and quality of their veil before wearing it on their big day is far more important than it arriving crumpled in a pretty box.

I do this for the love of weddings and adding a small detail to your big day makes my heart swell.

Hi, I'm Steph, and I want to play a small part in your wedding day. Did I mention that weddings turn me into a mushy sentimental mess? Yup, that's me!

It truly makes me feel so happy to see how I'm adding something special to a couple's big day and how a bride felt such a connection a bride to the accessories I made by hand that she's incorporating it into such an important celebration. I want to make gorgeous non traditional and AFFORDABLE accessories that I would have loved to have had access to when I was married.

On your wedding day it's common to find me with a huge smile on my face and telling everyone with ears that one of my veils or accessories is being worn by a beautiful bride as she marries her love. It truly makes my heart swell with happiness.

Juniper & Grace was born out of frustration at not being able to readily find the accessories I wanted to wear for my own wedding, the business is fueled by a love for all things vintage and a desire to make quality handmade accessories that are made with love and not mass produced.

Story time: I wanted a mantilla veil soooo bad, I had dreamed of having one forever when I pictured my wedding, and when my teenage best friend proposed 13 yrs after we first met I set about finding one. Let me just say, the Australian bridal market is very traditional and very very expensive. I decided after not being able to find a mantilla that wasn't made to order, and therefore insanely expensive I would make my own. Sadly, I couldn't find nice scalloped lace at all to make it myself. In the end I made myself a birdcage a few days before we married, which I loved and was much more practical as we ended up cancelling our booked wedding and eloping. We were married on the 3rd of July, 2011 in Grand Central Terminal NYC. Yup, I actually got married in a train station - that's every little girl's dream right? ;)

There's often a misconception that eloping isn't a big deal, but it is! All weddings are a big deal and important to the couple. Most elopements still involve a wedding dress, accessories, a bouquet, hair, make up, photographers, transport and of course a celebrant. They involve all the big wedding stuff, except the huge reception, invites and having to coordinate guests.

It's common to find me sewing veils whilst wearing a wedding dress and dancing along to music - as you can see, I'm serious about having fun whilst getting into the wedding vibe. Weddings don't have to be stressful, let me take care of this part of your day whilst you work on the bigger stuff.

I want to make gorgeous non traditional and AFFORDABLE accessories that I would have loved to have had access to when I was married.

A few things about me:

Prior to opening my Etsy shop I worked in healthcare recruitment and did a lot of work regarding immigration and working visas. I have no plans to return to that career 😂

It took 4 yrs from the idea of Juniper & Grace to the shop opening as it took that long for me to be in a good place where the idea of a wedding didn't make me cry as my own booked wedding was cancelled a few months beforehand and my now husband asked me to elope instead. Weddings sometimes bring out the worst in the people you least expect. It's humiliating and incredibly painful to have a wedding cancelled due to people refusing to talk through problems so we can all move forward and celebrate together.

It rained on our wedding day so a last minute decision was made to be married at the closest undercover public building - Grand Central Terminal NYC. So technically we got married in a train station. When we kissed over 100 people watching below cheered. It was amazing! We hadn't noticed commuters had stopped to witness our ceremony.

The taxi driver driving my new husband and I to a restaurant for a little celebratory dinner freaked out when he saw a police road block and kicked us out of the car. One of New York's finest felt sorry for us, me standing in the rain in my full wedding dress and husband in his suit. He insisted on and drove us the rest of the way in his NYPD patrol car. How cool is that?

These days I love weddings! I get such a buzz from playing a small part in a couple's big day. On your wedding day I spend most of my day with butterflies in my tummy thinking of that breath taking first glimpse a couple have of each other on their day. It's been therapeutic for me to help brides find their perfect veil or wedding accessory - I just ❤️ my little shop and all the brides who have allowed me to be part of their amazing wedding days! Thank you so much for entrusting me with this part of your day!

Within Australia ALL items are traceable.

In a flat mailer the veils maintain their shape, I'm sure all brides will agree that maintaining the integrity of their veil before wearing it on their wedding day is far more important than it arriving crumpled in a pretty box.

Please bear in mind that if you require your parcel urgently to Convo us first so we can discuss options. Please don't make a purchase needing it urgently without discussing options first as express shipping can be expensive.

All buyers will be responsible for international customs charges, should they occur. The UK notably has some hefty charges.
Additional policies and FAQs
Q. I need my item urgently, will it arrive within 2 weeks with standard shipping?

A. I cannot guarantee with standard shipping that it would as sometimes customs at both ends are backlogged, which accounts for the delay. If you're concerned your item won't arrive in time, please convo me BEFORE purchasing as express shipping is available, however it is expensive for 2-4 business day shipping.
