A History of Wedding Boots

From humble origins as satin booties to over-the-knee lace gorgeousness, wedding boots have a long history. As with any good story, this one is full of romance, royalty and rebelliousness. House of Elliot 'Lizzie Elliot' Victorian Lace Bridal Ankle Boots (Design inspired by a pair of boots Queen Victoria owned) The Regency Period Regency Fashion - Images via Pinterest It is during this era of romance and feisty heroines that the wedding boot is born.

Gold Festive Winter Wedding Inspiration

Synonymous with luxury and decadence, “gold” is a bold choice of wedding theme. During the holiday season, surrounded by twinkling lights and sparkling champagne, we have been dreaming of gilded cakes and glimmering tablescapes.

If, like many of us, you’re feeling slightly rushed off your feet, sit back and enjoy some festive wedding cheer. Whilst the other seasons have their own charming features, Winter time can bring with it the warmest of memories. When the world stands still under a blanket of snow, the simplest pleasure, such a roaring fire, can become one of  the greatest. A red and green wedding theme encompasses all that is traditionally associated with Christmas. Other trees might have lost their leaves, but evergreens provide a [...]
