As our summer wedding brides get ready for their big day, we reminisced about last year's brides and how much fun we always have with the ladies that come to us for their wedding shoes. It really is such an honour to create the shoes that take them through the journey of such a special day and we genuinely love every minute of the process. From the initial appointment, where we get to hear all about the wedding plans so far, to developing their Emmy London shoes, hair piece and bag so that it reflects the day and the bride's individual style.
We adore the romance and happiness that a wedding brings for all involved and in one way or another each bride that we meet will inspire Emmy's next collection of bridal accessories.
We caught up with Michelle; our Dubai-based bride who got married in her home town of Norwich last July wearing a bespoke pair of Emmy London shoes.
'So how did I find out about Emmy.....I knew I wanted some amazing shoes for my wedding. I was looking through one of the many wedding magazines I regularly browsed for inspiration and came across a picture of one of your shoes featured. There and then I fell in love with the styling and detail and began my research on Emmy London.
After my research I knew I had found my shoes but wanted to opt for the bespoke option so I could make them even more special. I arranged an appointment which is where I met the lovely Sammy.
After ooo-ing and ahh-ing at all the beautiful shoes (This was the point where I came across the gorgeous combs and thought a particular one would be perfect for my bridesmaid, Kate to wear and make her stunning outfit complete. It also had similar details to my shoes and I liked how there would be a simple connection between us.
In the showroom we got down to business and started work on designing my shoes.
Sammy was fab listening to all my needs, what I liked and elements of the wedding such as colour and theme, she also took into consideration the shape of my foot and my need for comfort, and we came up with the perfect vision for my wedding shoes.
I live in Dubai so when my shoes arrived at my parents my mum called me so I could see the finished article. A face time unveiling....The shoes were stunning!
And on the day of my wedding I felt so special slipping them on. I lasted the full day in them, they felt like slippers and whenever I could I was giving them a flash. I loved my wedding shoes!
My dress was by Pronovias. The dress and Emmy London shoes together were perfect.
I had a great experience with Emmy London and will be back one day when I need another pair of shoes for a special occasion for sure'.
