Bridalwave loves: bridal shoes by Rachel Simpson

By Elisabeth Edvardsen on June 1st, 2011

When we recently had a wander around the White Gallery London we came across the beautiful 2012 collection from Rachel Simpson. A beautifully feminine collection of understated designs yet detail rich, we knew we had to share a chosen few with you.

Rachel Simpson draws inspiration from the modest ladylike styling of the early forties – the vintage feel is definitely there for anyone having a vintage wedding – with a modern twist of luxurious fabrics.

Shoes retail from £115.00.

And with so many colours options to choose from, who said brides need to be dressed head to toe in white?!

Lily Allen chooses Rupert Sanderson wedding shoes

By Elisabeth Edvardsen on May 27th, 2011

Rupert Sanderson 'Muscadet', Ivory Satin Knotted Peep Toes, £455

Lily Allen has asked Rupert Sanderson to create two pairs of shoes for her wedding day.

The ‘Smile’ singer wants a pair of flats and heels so she has a choice of footwear when she marries fiancé Sam Cooper in June and has roped in the famous designer to help her.

She told “He’s making me a pair of flats and a pair of heels, so I can run up and down hills. It’s much chicer to have two pairs I think. I just really hope it doesn’t rain.”

Chanel’s Karl Lagerfeld will create the singer’s wedding dress.

Lily – who has recently turned fashion designer, launching her own vintage collection Lucy in Disguise with her sister Sarah Owen – also revealed she doesn’t have a particular style and chooses clothes based on her mood.

She said: “It’s up and down. The way I’m feeling really effects what I wear, my mood I mean. I basically put on whatever I think will make me feel happy that day.”

Bridalwave loves: princess shoes by Georgina Goodman

By Elisabeth Edvardsen on April 26th, 2011

We apologise for going royal wedding crazy here. But do you blame us?! It’s THE wedding of the year!!

We don’t know what shoes Kate will be wearing as she walks down the aisle to her Prince Charming, but these especially commissioned wedding shoes by leading British shoe designer Georgina Goodman for the Royal Mint would be a great choice.

Inspired by the traditional wedding rhyme “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue”, only eleven pairs have been made to celebrate the Royal Wedding, and princess-in-waiting Kate has already been sent a pair.

Each shoe has been hand finished at Georgina’s Mayfair studio, making every pair unique. The body of the shoe is made from the finest Italian suede and handmade lace, whilst the heel is embellished with Swarovski crystals.

Etsy finds: Something blue…

By Elisabeth Edvardsen on April 14th, 2011

We all know the saying ‘something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue’ when it comes to weddings.

So we thought we’d look at Etsy, the site for handmade and unique items, for something blue – it can also act as your ‘something new’…

Bridalwave Loves: Hetty Rose Japan inspired shoes

By Elisabeth Edvardsen on March 9th, 2011

Whether you are the bride, a bridesmaid or attending your best friends’ wedding finding the right outfit can be tricky, not to mention the shoes. After all, the right shoes can make the outfit. If you’re after something a bit different Hetty Rose shoes are the perfect choice!

“The collection is based on a theory of re-using and re-working vintage materials in a creative and sustainable way, hand making gorgeous, feminine shoes to fit.”

Hetty Rose sources materials primarily from vintage Japanese kimono fabrics which are then made into simple, yet provocative, designs that will ensure shoe envy will be plentiful.

As each pair is handmade, brides can match the fabric or colour theme to their dress: creating a unique, personal treasure to keep forever.

We’d quite like to see Kate Middleton in a pair of Hetty Rose’s…

From £350 depending on size and style. Visit for more information.

Today we love these dazzling peeptoe bridal shoes from Freya Rose. The Grace (£370.00) is part of The Duchess Collection and is a classic peep-toe with ankle strap. In ivory duchess silk satin on the upper with an exclusive Freya Rose signature mother of pearl mosaic heel. It comes adorned with a gorgeous handmade silk flower that is embellished with Swarovski crystals, Parisian lace and ostrich feathers.

Get 10% off customised Swarovski crystal wedding shoes

By Elisabeth Edvardsen on December 2nd, 2010

Ah snowy white, shiny sparkly things and love… No I’m not talking about Christmas; I’m talking about these dazzling shoes from Perdita’s Wedding Shoes!

But while we’re on the topic of Christmas, perhaps you should leave this site on your computer to drop a hint or two to your partner?

A bespoke genuine Swarovski crystal shoe detailing service, Perdita’s offers custom made shoes for as little as £300 for a luxury look! Simply choose the style you want and cover them with Swarovski crystals. I’ve been told popular choices are on the heels, across the toe or randomly scatterings over the shoe. If you’ve already bought your wedding shoes, don’t worry you can sprinkle crystals on your own shoes as well.

Each crystal is precision cut to allow maximum light refraction, and are available in clear (think diamonds), AB (which change colour with the light) or colour crystals to match your outfit or wedding theme.

The service has a four week turnaround time, so any Cinderellas getting married in the new year should leave plenty of time ahead of the big day!

As an early Christmas present, brides-to-be can enjoy a 10% discount on the service throughout December, as well as an additional 10% discount on any shoes purchased. All shoes come with a free shoe keepsake box worth £9.99.

Just head over to and add promo code CRYSTAL10 at the check-out (active until 31st December 2010).


Paris Hilton designs a range of bridal shoes

By lotte on November 16th, 2009

Paris Hilton Senorita shoe.jpg Not normally known for her taste in clothing, Paris Hilton’s recently launched range of bridal shoes are surprisingly appealing. We particularly like the ‘Senorita’ shoe: white with an exaggerated bow, they’d be a pretty finishing touch to almost any full-length gown. All the shoes also have a pink sole – not to everyone’s tastes, but a fun addition nonetheless.

Available in four styles and at a very reasonable $120 (around £60) they can be ordered online and delivered to the UK from

Aruna Seth launches bright pink wedding shoes

By Andrea Petrou on November 12th, 2009

Nia.jpgIf you’re getting married this winter but worried about the dark and dreary nights then add some colour to the day with these hot pink shoes from Aruna Seth.

We know they may not be the first choice to an otherwise traditional wedding, but you’ll only do it once, so why not do it in colourful style. We think these shoes are perfect for brides that really want to stand out and we’ve fallen in love with the butterfly detailing, which is a perfect partner to these summery shoes. There’s also a hidden platform sole meaning these shoes won’t hurt your feet.

The shoes also come in black and ivory, but remember, hot pink shoes are really a pair you can wear again and again.
