Handmade - What to expect:
The majority of my designs are completely handmade to order. I work with a small company who hand make the base shoes for me. This allows me to offer a wide variety of different styles and heel heights, all of which are extremely comfortable and can be made to measure.
When the base shoes arrive with me they are plain, in white or ivory. I use premium quality textile dyes or paint to get the shoes to the desired colour. Fabrics, embellishments, trims, crystals are all carefully chosen and applied by hand. Appliques and fixtures are often handmade. Soles are painted with a quality leather paint and sealed.
There may be some slight differences to the photos in the listings, however each pair is finished to the same high standard.
Do I need to supply the shoes?
In most cases I will provide the shoes. I have a vast range of handmade base shoes I normally work with. These can be offer in sizes 2-8 (UK) or completely made to measure, with a variety of heel heights from 4cm - 12cm. If you require a different size shoe or you are worried about the base shoes, then you can send me your desired shoes. Please contact me prior to this as not all shoes are compatible
I use handmade, high quality bridal shoes; these usually run true to size. Please check your shoe size carefully. If you are unsure then please message me prior to ordering to discuss the sizing and options available. Upon ordering I will ask you to supply your usual shoes size and the measurements of your feet to ensure the correct size is ordered.
Most of my shoes fit true to size. Additionally, I offer a service to try the shoes first. Through this program, you may try on the blank shoe to make sure it fits before we do the custom work. Please see 'The Perfect Fit' for further details.
It is important that you send me the correct size at the time of ordering, any problems or questions please contact me.
Custom and Personalised Orders:
I offer a fully customised service, if you don't see the design or style you want then I will do everything I can to incorporate your ideas. This can include the use of different characters. Or different wedding themes and colours. And even completely new designs and styles.
I can add a personal touch to every order, this includes painting the soles of the shoes in your chosen colour and adding a date or name. I can also add personalised images to the shoes

PACKAGING, GIFT WRAPPING & GIFT MESSAGES:
Each pair of my shoes come with a beautifully designed shoe box and matching tissue paper. All packaging materials are eco-friendly and either made from recycled material or fully recyclable.
Gift messages are available and will be added to a ornate card tied with a ribbon at no extra cost - please include the message required.
Gift wrapping is available - boxes are either black or white with a choice of ribbon colour. The charge for this is £4 per item.
Every pair of shoes I create are a unique piece of art, please treat them with great care. I seal my glitter & decoupaged shoes with a durable water-resistant sealant. Rhinestones are attached using industrial strength glue and should not budge. The shoes are water-resistant and not completely waterproof; therefore, I do not recommend wearing them in the rain, on wet grass, or getting them wet in general just to be safe.
If you need to clean them use a damp cloth to lightly cleanse the surface of the shoe. If by chance any rhinestones do fall off, they can be replaced with a small dab of Superglue or E6000. If you need replacement rhinestones, please contact me & I will send you some at no charge.
Decoupage Shoe Designs:
Some of my designs are made using decoupage. This involves a careful process of applying layers of digitally printed images to the shoes using a specialised technique. Because of this unique process some images may have small creases or small imperfections, these will be minimal and only notable close up.
You may or may not receive the exact same style/brand of shoe shown in the photos due to stockists, so unless otherwise noted, you may or may not receive the exact style, however I will try to make them very similar. You may receive shoes with either pointed or rounded toes, depending on what is available based on your size at time of production unless you specify a certain type of shoe. This includes studs and certain adornments. Please contact me if you require anything specific.
