5 Star Weddings:What can brides expect from the Freya Rose custom-made shoe experience?
Freya Rose: We hold private appointments at our head office/showroom in Islington where you can try on different shoes with or without your dress plus there are veils and other accessories on hand. We talk to our bride-to-be about what they are looking for. about the dress and other accessories they plan to have.
This will help us understand what style they are looking to achieve. Once you have selected a basic Freya Roseshape and heel size you can start with the fun part, the customisation. It is this that will make your bridal shoes truly unique – dye the shoes, incorporate some of lace from your dress, add pearls or Swarovski. What makes it even more special is that customization trims can often be fitted or detachable, which gives you the option to dye the shoes after your big day and use both clips and shoes again.
