Float Like A Butterfly- Hand Painted Butterfly and Bumble Bee Print Wedding Shoes

Sophie Naylor1 Comment

We love every aspect of designing a pair of hand-painted wedding shoes that depict the brides favourite flowers or objects, especially when the finishing touch is a plump bumble bee snuffling a flower, or a beautiful butterfly flying around the shoe. These little creatures add an element of joy and in our humble opinion elevate the floral patterns to the next botanical level.

Whether the butterfly print is the centre of your wedding shoe pattern, or simply a finishing touch to add a pop of colour, their delicate wings and beautiful hues make for the ultimate bespoke detail.

A trend we are absolutely loving at Elizabeth Rose HQ right now is a blush wedding dress, the prettiest shades excentuating stunning bead work or lace we are swimming in inspirationg when it comes to our shoe designs. We have had a couple of gorgeous brides approach us for hand-painted shoes that will match their blush wedding dresses, and the possibility is endless when your starting point is such a gorgeous and unique wedding dress.

pink peony handpainted satin wedding shoes

Oh my goodness, where to begin?! 

This needle and thread gown is a part of their current dress collection, and we are so in love! The bead work, the tulle and cape are such a beautiful ensemble. We pair this stunning blush wedding gown with our rose gold bridal shoe in ivory satin with hand-painted pink peonies, off set with subtle lilac flowers. Perfection!


If you're looking for something that still holds the whisper of a traditional wedding dress but with a twist this blush tulle skirt and ivory bodice dress is the one for you! The simple and oh-so elegant silohette means that you will feel like you are walking on a powder pink puff of air on your wedding day.

We paired this ethereal gown with our hand painted flat satin ballerina shoes, embellished with subtle david austin roses, silver leaf eucalyptus and babiesbreath.

Wow! Wowzer wowee, what can we say? This applique blush wedding dress is just so beautiful, the ombre effect leads from the darker blush pink up the skirt into the ivory lace bodice perfectly, creating the most beautiful silohette.

We could not help but pair our blush pink satin wedding shoes, hand painted with pink peonies and butterflies. 


Pink peony and eucalyptus sling back satin shoes

We might be biased with embellishments but we do adore a needle and thread gown, and this one is no exception. The gorgeous blush beadwork off set with more bold browns and black make for the most intricate and beautiful gown that also looks laidback and effortless, tick, tick and tick! Without over whelming the whole ensemble, we pair our gorgeous satin sling back shoes, hand painted with pale pink peonies and sweetpea flowers, finished with silver eucalyptus leaves. What more could you want?


All of the dresses above have been linked to their origanal website, the shoes are all available in our shop, and can obviously be customised to match your own personal style, so be sure to get in touch!

Elegant and Unique Flat Wedding Shoes from Elizabeth Rose London

Sophie NaylorComment

When Elizabeth Rose was created, our founder Sophie began a journey of discovering what Brides, Bridemaids and wedding guests felt was missing from the wedding industry. Quite quickly Sophie noticed a distinct lack of interesting and beautiful flat wedding shoes available to those seeking a comfortable alternative to high heels on the wedding day. 

So it is of no surprise to know that our flat satin wedding shoes are one of our most popular styles. The beautiful ballerina pumps are handmade in the UK and then hand-painted in our London studio by Sophie herself. The satin shoes can be hand-painted with anything your heart desires, whether its your wedding bouque flowers, a sentimental item, or even your beloved pet, we design the shoes with you in order to create the perfect wedding shoes just for you. 

To get you inspired, we have picked out some our most popular designs below.

We also offer hand-painted canvas trainers, perfect for the bride who wants ultimate comfort on her wedding day, and also the days following. Our brides love going for a combination design of hand-painted satin shoes, as well as a pair of matching painted converse for their honeymoon, creating a keepsake that can be worn and a keepsake that can also be cherished

Unique Engagement Ring Ideas- When buying a ring seems too daunting!

Sophie NaylorComment

So you have decided to take the next step and propose to your love, your lobster, your one. As soon as you start googling 'engagement rings' you will be inundated by standard single diamond engagement rings, or the 4c's diamond explanations, but spending your budget that you have carefully saved on a ring that your partner might not completely and utterly adore is a bit daunting. 

Our first thoughts as wedding designers is poor you! So we wanted to let you know about the other options you have at your disposal, there is something called a place holder ring that carries the same sentiment, and cute design, without the commitment to a ring that spent all your budget before knowing what your partner will want to wear everyday. 

Newsflash, at Elizabeth Rose our designer Sophie is also an engagement ring designer and she has no idea about the exact design she would want, so these rings below have been confirmed as perfect for proposing by a bonfide expert. The process of designing an engagement ring together with your partner is also such a lovely process (we recommend North London designers Aurus London) that we don't know why you wouldn't want to do that together, whilst also keeping the surprise element with a placeholder ring. 

Lets not jump ahead though... to get you started we have picked out some of our favourite placeholders rings that you can buy from various small business' that will ensure a happy yes when you ask the big question.

We have had a lot of love for our personalised shoes this wedding season, and when you can customise the flowers surrounding your initials, or name you can see why! 

At Elizabeth Rose London, we believe that shoes are the perfect finishing touch, and are the perfect focus for the finishing flare. With a pop of flowers you can really bring them into a dimension of their own. It doesn't matter if you have a long wedding dress planned, the beauty of our personalised shoes is that you know they are there, and were designed just for you and your wedding day! 

With this in mind we have curated some of our popular personalisations, in order to give you some inspiration for your own design. 


Date: Such a sweet and popular finishing touch is adding your wedding dates to one or both of the shoes. If you're having more than one ceremony you can add one on each shoe, giving equal weighting to both days. The script can be placed anywhere on the shoe, along the side, nestled in a flower petal, or on the sole of the shoe.

Initials: Monograms are always a gorgeous touch, they can be as discreet or as bold as you want. The most popular choice is the bride-to-bes new married initials, or a mixture of the bride and grooms initials joined together, we can sketch something up using your letters and a variety of fonts, or work from your own handwriting, so don't forget to mention this when you get in touch!

So far in 2017 we are seeing a lot of blush pink peonies, blooms of roses & wisps of greenery. Wildflowers are also very popular, creating bursts of beautiful poppies & garden roses enrobed in green leaves. These beautiful contrasts and shades work perfectly when painted on satin shoes with the shimmer of the satin complimenting the colours of the floral print.

We have a sneak peak of some of our Spring summer wedding shoe designs that are ready for the big day, the brides all designed their shoes themselves and even added personal details such as initials or sentimental flowers.

Its not often used in wedding bouquets but we love the unique look that the branches of blooms bring to a bouquet. Our cherry blossom print handpainted flat wedding shoes bring such a subtle look and would make them perfect for everyday wear.

Succulents are becoming so much more popular in wedding bouqets and we can see why! Sprigs of eucalyptus and bursts of succulents create a unique wedding bouquet and look gorgeous when hand-painted on these flat wedding shoes in ivory satin. The subtle peach and mint colour create such a delicate pretty palette.

Flowers, on flowers, on flowers. What could be better? With this princess BHLDN applique wedding dress we think that our pink rose and lilac kitten heel wedding shoes would look just devine!

These classic modern wedding shoes, hand-painted with white roses and lots of greenery would look gorgeous with this beautifully sleek BHLDN calf length wedding dress

It was a real style moment when Olivia Palermo's wedding dress was a Carolina Herrara Skirt and Cashmere jumper with gorgeous blue wedding shoes. So re-creating it with an extra special detail would be just perfect. Our blue hydrangea print wedding shoes would look amazing with this BHLDN tulle skirt and jumper dress

We love the idea of a wedding trouser jumpsuit look, it's a timeless Bianca Jagger moment and will make for the perfect style staple for years to come. In keeping with the clean lines and comfort of wedding jumpsuits, we think these coral freesia and succulent print ballerina flat wedding shoes would finish this look off beautifully. 

Adding colour to your wedding dress can be a tricky one, keeping it subtle and beautiful whilst also making a statement. With our lilac rose and delphinium hand-painted wedding shoes this dilemma is solved, these gorgeous heels add a pop of subtle colour and personal touches to your princess style wedding dress.
