Hand-Painted Wedding Shoes from Le Soulier

by Fran @ Hitched

“Make your shoes as individual as you are” – a quote by Sonia Brown, the founder and designer of Le Soulier (www.lesoulier.co.uk).

Last week when I was reading the hitched.co.uk discussion forum I came across an interesting post where a bride had received a pair of hand-painted wedding shoes in the post for her wedding.  Having never seen anything like this before I was intrigued to find out more!

I got in touch with the designer, Sonia Brown to find out what inspired her to create such a unique product.

After years of designing shoes for a number of popular high street brands and wedding shoe brands, Sonia soon came to realise that Wedding shoes in general were uninspiring and completely lifeless! When it's your wedding day you want something different, that little something special that no one else has seen before or even heard of; based on this fact, Le Soulier was born.

Sonia is truly passionate and dedicated to hand-painting every pair of wedding shoes, based on the style and personality of the bride.  She can incorporate the theme of the wedding, along with the married surname, wedding date and other unique aspects to the individual day.

The most unusual wedding shoes that Sonia’s been commissioned to make were for a Super Mario Brothers/Nintendo themed wedding. “Individual people dreaming of individual shoes” is what Sonia is passionate about.

“Working closely along side of each of my brides I can really bring out their style, personality and wedding theme in each bespoke design I create. Brides even say to me that after seeing my previous work, when it comes to their shoes being individually designed for them they are even more excited to see them than they are about getting their wedding dress! It’s just a girl thing - women LOVE their shoes!" say’s Sonia.

Le Soulier now receive orders from brides around the world and can help design your dream pair of wedding shoes!
