My Experience with Emmy London
After searching high and low for my ideal wedding shoe I was at a loss. I knew I wanted to have a statement pair of shoes, possibly a colour (not white or ivory) and something I could wear again that had character. I struggled to find exactly what I wanted on the highstreet, I didn't want anything too plain, the heel couldn’t be too high and I wanted comfort for our big day, this really didn't seem to exist.
I began the search for shoes that I could get dyed and add embellishment to, when I came across Emmy London online.
The website emmylondon.com takes you on a journey through their designs process to production with beautiful imagery and inspiration, which got me very excited that I could finally have my ideal shoes for our wedding. After contacting the team, I set up an appointment and went to visit their London studio.
Sitting in a quiet street in Islington above a lingerie shop, their boutique was full of beautiful and inspired creations. As a designer, I just fell in love with every aspect of their head quarters, from the mood boards on the walls and accessories that were gracefully placed showcasing the collections, I was in awe.
My initial appointment was to determine the style of shoe I wanted, my correct shoe size, heel height, colour and the embellishment details. With luxury Italian suede and leather to choose from I found the perfect colour for my shoes.
I decided on a Teal green that was like no other (it also sat with our colour palette perfectly). We matched it back with a soft gold leather strap and a mother of pearl embellished T-bar and my bespoke ‘Eva’ shoe was born.
The process of choosing my shoes and getting them made took roughly 14 weeks. I was kept up to date with the progress and was told as soon as they were ready.
I had a one to one appointment with Emmy herself when I collected my shoes. We sat down and she handed me this white box with a lavish champagne bow, it was like Christmas. As I opened the box I could not believe my eyes. Such a stunning pair of shoes, perfect for any bride but above all else they were mine.
My wedding shoes may not be to everyone's taste but they make such an impact and reflect my personality. I had so many amazing comments about my gorgeous shoes on our wedding day, I just love them. The best thing is I get to wear them over and over and over again.
The whole experience with Emmy London was flawless. The team were friendly and patient and I could not recommend them highly enough.
