Hand-Painted Wedding Shoes from Le Soulier
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
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!
