Crystal headpieces and birdcage veils have become the 'it' accessories for brides wanting a slightly non-traditional, vintage look. But for something different that doesn't compromise on glamour and old-world charm, look to gilded details and ornate beadwork inspired by the iconic mosiacs in Istanbul's Hagia Sophia to make your bridal look stand out.

Accessories like a beautifully embellished clutch will give all your wedding day essentials a supremely glamorous home, while a gilded crown (because when else can you wear one?) and gold foil booties are the epitome of romantic, regal chic.

Here's what you need to get this beautiful Byzantine style:
