Our Story

Ford Bridal is an Australian designer of luxury bridal accessories inspired by the power of choice and dedicated to celebrating modern love.

Tired of the generic accessories that dominated the wedding market, renowned Australian headwear designer Chantelle Ford founded Ford Bridal, along with its sister brand, the celebrity-loved Ford Millinery, in 2013. Ford is driven by the passion for helping modern marriers express their unique style on their most special day.

Since its inception, our team has focused on the creation of luxurious handcrafted bridal headpieces — from hats to hair combs — fit for the modern bride. We exist to champion style expression and fill the wide gap in bridal headwear. Our pieces are created to embody effortless luxury and style.

Like you and your style, we are not run-of-the-mill. We are authentic, considered, and conscious!



FORD Bridal envisions a world where every modern marrier — of any gender, ethnicity, and background — is empowered to celebrate their love story with accessories that reflect their individuality. Whether you’re looking for something modern, classic, vintage, glamorous, rustic, romantic, or vibrant, we create pieces that will suit your style and wedding theme.

We strive to be a catalyst for a more inclusive, conscious, and joyous
celebration of love.

Ford Bridal is powered by a passion for designing, producing, and curating contemporary bridal accessories that embody creativity and choice.

Skilled artisans in our Sydney studio meticulously handcraft each piece.



We know how important choice is. We’re sure you do too, especially now that you’re planning a wedding. What if your choice of bridal headpiece will also positively impact a child’s life? A portion of the sales from your purchase will be donated to help end child marriage. Learn more about it here.

Something blue

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.
We’re taking care of something new and something blue for you.
We are deeply honoured to be part of your wedding.
As a token of appreciation, every Ford Bridal piece comes with a
gift — a tiny blue Swarovski crystal hidden on the label of the headpiece.
