When I set up Silver Sixpence in her Shoe nearly four years ago I hoped, as any new business owner would do, that it would be a success and that I might find a market for my products here at home in the UK.
In that time I’ve been surprised but delighted to find that Silver Sixpence also has international appeal, with us regularly receiving orders from as far away as Australia and New Zealand, as well as other parts of Europe and America, via our new website and, previously, from our Etsy and Not on the High Street stores.
In fact, last year we began working with our first overseas supplier, the gorgeous Primrose & Finch bridal boutique in Auckland, New Zealand. Primrose & Finch is a perfect fit for Silver Sixpence accessories, stocking beautiful vintage-inspired dresses by Claire Pettibone and Charlie Brear, amongst others, all of which complement our pieces beautifully. It’s a real thrill to know that somewhere across the other side of the world there are brides wearing our headpieces and accessories on their big day and the feedback we receive tells us how much they love them.
One stunning example of this came to us via photographer Hilary Cam, who is based in Sydney, Australia. She photographed the incredible September wedding of Laura and Ryan, who wed in the Blue Mountains National Park. The setting was truly breathtaking and Laura looked an absolute picture in her modified Maggie Sottero gown and Silver Sixpence’s Persephone headpiece and Allegra garter, both of which she’d purchased via our Etsy site.
Laura and Ryan’s wedding is full of beautiful, personal detail which we can’t do justice to here so visit Hilary Cam’s blog to hear all about their dream day and daydream about their lovely nature-inspired wedding.
Laura told us, “I absolutely loved the headpiece! I loved how it made such a difference to my entire look and really complemented my dress. “ – who could ask for better feedback than that?
