Harriet Wilde Designer Day and Valentine’s Accessory Event!

This time last week it was Valentine’s Day and we were busy getting ready for a fabulous event here at LOVE, our annual Harriet Wilde Designer Day and it was a Valentine’s themed one too! Ruth Shaw, the super talented lady behind Harriet Wilde shoes was coming along to advise our LOVE brides on all their shoe needs,  and she brought her full collection with her too… seriously WOW! My words cannot do these shoes justice, but Jonny’s photos certainly can :o)

You may have wandered past the boutique at some point last week and seen the fabulous light up ‘Kissing Heart’ in our window to celebrate our event and Valentine’s of course (and…ahem… to announce our big news that we were the new Cheshire stockists for Enzoani!!!)What an exciting week hey! Thanks to Suzy and Ollie at The Word Is Love for the Kissing Heart – we are big fans of their light up letters too having being the first people to use their “LOVE” letters for our first birthday party last year!  We had so many amazing comments about the heart – it would make the most amazing feature at a wedding!

Here’s a few snaps taken by Jonny Draper Photography at our event and a glimpse at the stunning accessory collection we have here at LOVE. Hope you love as much as I do!

Not only did we have this amazing shoe collection in the boutique, but our other accessory designers sent us lots of additional accessories so we were able to show an extended collection for each, including Hermione Harbutt, Donna Crain, Stewart Parvin,  Eliza Vale, Pompadour Garters to name just a few.  So many beautiful and very different accessories our brides were spoilt for choice!

We were even lucky enough to have the amazingly talented Paisley Gamble, hair stylist extraordinaire, at the boutique for the day giving brides styling advice and sharing  (and wearing!) our love for beautiful sparkly things ;o)

A huge thanks to Ruth for coming ‘up north’ to see us and spend the day with us, to Paisley for her wonderful hair styling skills and advice, to the husband Jonny for capturing the day with these amazing pics :o), and also to my sister Lisa for all her help on the day! Thanks to my other accessory designers for sharing their treasures with us all and to The Flower Lounge for providing stunning floral marvels making the boutique look extra pretty! And last but of course not least… to all my beautiful brides for coming along and making this event such a great success! Phew!
