For years wedding shoes have been an afterthought; hidden under bouffant dresses, never seen or admired. 


But with more brides opting for a contemporary aesthetic, shoes are (finally) having their moment and taking their place centre stage, with some brides even buying their shoes first and then building their outfit around it.  


We have to be honest - we’re not overly keen on ‘wedding shoes.’ They’re a bit like traditional wedding dresses, you’d never really wear them in ‘real life’. There are SO many amazing, fashion-led options out there that will look incredible as part of a bridal look - and best of all you get to rewear them again and again. To us they are just as important an investment as the outfit itself. 


Here is our rundown of the chicest shoes that are perfect for your wedding day and long after.


THE STRAPPY SANDAL // Super versatile - works with most styles. Works perfectly with a more embellished dress
