Whether they’re flat, gold and strappy or your something blue, shoes are a big part of any bride’s big day.
But for the truly unique bride, not just any old pump will do. That’s where Deborah Thomson, creator of Figgie Shoes, comes in. Thomson creates unique, hand-painted footwear specific to the wedding’s theme.
Embellishing the shoes with things like the wedding date, declarations of love, inside jokes and even the wedding hashtag, the pumps are a great conversation starter and make for some incredible photo ops.
“Most shoes will comfortably fit 8-12 personalized items, so we start by identifying those key memories or wedding details they want painted on the shoes,” Thomson told The Huffington Post . “The couple’s names and wedding date are always popular choices, and often ‘I Do’ at the back of the heels and the flowers in her bouquet are incorporated.”
As with all things related to weddings, the shoes will cost you (they start at $598, and Thomson says with embellishments brides usually end up spending between $720-$850), but think of it as a two-for-one deal: a pair of shoes to wear on your wedding day and a piece of artwork you can put on display for years of wedded bliss to come.
Thomson, who recently got married herself, told HuffPost Weddings that experiencing her own wedding has changed her business for the better.
“I can understand and relate to brides in ways I never could before. Down to the tiny details, I know how special those little things are and how much hard work and heart goes into planning something that’s over in one day,” she said. “If I can help those memories last longer and preserve their hard work and their vision in a unique way, I am thankful for that opportunity.”

A whimsical white wedding inspirational photoshoot inspired by Disney’s latest installment, Frozen.
From a young age I dreamed of the perfect white wedding, and I don’t think I was alone. So today’s inspirational shoot is for all the little girls inside us who dream of a whimsical fairytale with a little bit of sparkle and of course a Prince Charming. Led by the talented Nadia Meli, who was over come with inspiration while watching Disney’s latest instalment, Frozen (which I have to admit I haven’t seen, but after seeing today’s pics, I defo will be checking it out). This gorgeous shoot takes inspiration from classic old-fashioned romance, and if you’re thinking of an on-trend all-white wedding, you’ll adore this…
Nadia saw how the Princess Elsa from Frozen transformed into that beautiful Snow Queen and immediately I thought, that would be a fantastic look for a bride and her vision created the most beautiful photo shoot.
There are two stand out elements that embody the enchanted fairy tale vision of this beautiful shoot and they are the dress and the flowers. The incredible leaf embellished and swoon worthy dress, is from the Pronovias collection at Flamenco Munich and the talent team behind the styling and flowers were Ivy & Olive.
There is a wonderfully intimate atmosphere throughout the shoot that reminds me of the hidden world of Narnia, except these two didn’t just climb out of a wardrobe! The incredible location is Das Tegernsee in Germany and the mountainous region is simply stunning.
If your thinking of a minimalist white wedding, start with the stationery, you can get creative white shapes and motifs and add muted tones and ribbon to accessories.
I’m smitten with this table setting, mercury glass vases, white and green flowers and silver place settings, stunning and impactful using very little colour.
The dress is incredible and such a show stopper, by adding a simple one flower anemone bouquet it balances out perfectly. One flower bouquets are a beautiful idea and work very well just take a look at our One Flower Bridal Bouquets post.
Well I’m sure you’ll agree that was one epic swoon worthy feast to look at this morning! A big thank you to Nadia Meli for sharing her beautiful work with us today.
For all you brides in Germany, these talented people might be very helpful…
