Bohemian Mermaid Bridal Inspiration

This boho mermaid inspired shoot created by the lovely Illy from 'Illy Elizabeth Weddings' is filled with romantic bohemian ideas and will leave you dreaming wintry beachy weather.

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. A golden day is perfectly accompanied by the complementary ivory lace of our Goodnight Sweetheart lace boots, a choice in footwear as sumptuous and daring as the colour theme itself. We hope you love this inspiration board, dedicated to resplendence and splendour, Love, Sarah xxx                     Photo Credits: Lace boots  -  Real House of Elliot Bride Kathleen taken by Shea Christine Photography | Gilded cake - Purple Tree Photography via Mod [...]

Ruby Red and Woodland Green Wedding Inspiration

The shops have been warning us since we guzzled the last of the Hallowe’en chocolate; but now it’s official: Christmas is just around the corner!

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 [...]

Elegant Purple and Lace Wedding – Real Bride Feature – Teresa and Gee

One of the highlights of the day to day running of House of Elliot is speaking to our fabulous brides over the phone as I love hearing the excitement in their voice when they talk about planning their wedding. In early February I had the pleasure of speaking to lovely bride Teresa who chose to wear a pair of our 'Evangeline Elliot' vintage lace wedding boots in ivory for her special day. When, several months later Teresa kindly sent me photos of her stunning and elegant wedding look, dripping in gorgeous lace and featuring her favourite colour 'Cadbury's Purple', I just knew I had to share them with you. So it is with great [...]
