The bride with no shoes – who arrived in the shop in a panic on the morning of her wedding to buy a pair of shoes because she still hadn’t got round to it, even though she had been in several times for fittings for the beautiful silk dress with puff sleeves we made her back in the 1990’s We are still friends to this day and now we ensure all brides bring their shoes for their dress fittings.
