What is your most memorable wedding?
When we were asked to create a pair of wildflower shoes with butterflies, we were very new at the time and finding our feet. The shoes took longer than we would ordinarily take today, but the bride was so unbelievably lovely and in love with her shoes that it made the learning curve so much more enjoyable

Describe your typical process with a couple.
We begin talking through the shoe style they would be most comfortable in, then we talk through the pattern they have in mind.

The shoes are then hand-painted which takes approximately 4 weeks, sealed with heat and then sent out to the client.
