A Real Bride StoryReal Bride Sophie opted for a pair of our timeless signature Mother of Pearl heels on her big day, accompanied by some of our gorgeous feather shoe clips and an entirely bespoke wedding dress! Doesn't she look stunning?"Mauro and I got married in Sicily (Taormina) close to where Mauro grew up. I chose Freya Rose's gorgeous shoes because I knew the mother of pearl inlay would protect the shoes from walking on the romantic cobbled streets and lots of dancing. The shoe clips added a unique flourish, which I can keep forever." "We chose to have a civil ceremony in the medieval town hall in the centre of Taormina and make the parade to our reception in the San Domenico palace hotel which is a converted medieval monastery over looking the sea." "I customised my dress myself from a corset and a skirt I found. Then I completely embellished it with 3d lace, pearls and crystals (it took 3 years!). I also made my veil, so I wanted my accessories to have the same bespoke feel!" "Our photographer Anna Scialfa perfectly captured our wedding, which we will cherish forever.
Your wedding day is such a special day and most importantly, is a celebration of you and your partner. My advice is to go always trust your instincts, with no regrets."
Congratulations Sophie and Mauro! The team at Freya Rose wish you every happiness together!
