A white wedding veil made of cotton netting. The veil is a large rectangular shape that is edged with machine chain-stitching. The stitching runs straight down the sides and forms flat bows at intervals. Along two sides, the chain-stitching is scalloped and continues to form bows. In the four corners there is an elaborate white silk flower appliqué design. The design has three fabric flowers applied to the netting with a chain-stitch and surrounded by chain-stitched scrolls and leaves.
This wedding veil was worn by Natalie Reville. Mrs Reville came to New Plymouth in 1950 to work as a nurse and it was during this time that she met her husband. Mrs Reville was married on 5 July 1955 and she had her wedding dress made in New Plymouth by Mrs Suhr, a local dressmaker. The materials for the dress were purchased at Haughton's Dress Fabric shop.
