Nicola of Silver Sixpence In Her Shoe explains: An accidental gift of a box of old handmade laces and appliqués was the inspiration behind the 2012 collection.

.

Including my signature headpieces, birdcage veils and exquisite garters, this season sees the addition of quirky shoe clips and unique decorated horseshoes. The collection is designed to appeal to the modern bride who wishes to create a perhaps vintage inspired, certainly individual look. Using antique laces and adornments, each piece is handcrafted and one off. The Delilah headband for example has been made using a tiny lace collar lovingly restored and embellished with tiny crystals.

I also offer a bespoke service, and encourage my clients to bring family heirlooms, such as jewellery, to their consultation, allowing me to create something beautiful and entirely unique with a personal emotional attachment for the bride.

It was hard to find accessories that matched the style I wanted for my own wedding day, so I put to use the skills I had learnt throughout my degree in Fashion and Textiles to produce my own unique look. I launched Silver Sixpence In Her Shoe a matter of months later, and the company now supplies brides as far away as Sydney, Australia, with their wedding day accessories!

.

My unusual company name was inspired by the traditional wedding day rhyme, ‘Something old, something new’ which dictates that, for a married life of wealth and happiness, a bride should place a lucky silver sixpence in her left shoe.
