Living in Cheshire on the outskirts of Manchester I am lucky enough to be close to a number of lovely independent wedding businesses, one of which is Silver Sixpence In Her Shoe who have featured before on the blog.
Run by the talented Nicola, Silver Sixpence is a range of beautiful vintage inspired bridal accessories, including headpieces, garters, and these pretty new lucky horseshoes I recently showcased.
I am excited to share with you that Nicola’s designs are now available from her new Not On The High Street shop www.notonthehighstreet.com/silversixpenceinhershoe that launched today. Silver Sixpence is now one of over 3,000 small independent UK businesses on Not On The High Street, each which has been carefully chosen for their innovative and well made products.
The lovely Anna from A Alicia Handmade got in touch to tell me about a great offer she’s running, but only until the end of the month – 31st July 2012 – so that’s less than a week! If you’d love to purchase one of Anna’s beautiful garters, which are made with organic, fair trade and vintage textiles and ribbons, and you quite fancy a 25% discount, then click on this link and use the code LOVE25 at the checkout.
A Alicia Handmade has been part of The Natural Wedding Company directory for before I can even remember, I bought one of her blue ribbon garters for my own wedding last May and can testify to not only how pretty it was (even the box it came in was beautiful) but how comfy it was.
It is really lovely to be able to share, in more detail, some of the great businesses you can find on The Natural Wedding Company directory.

I also didn’t want really high heels as most of our wedding was spent walking on grass. Mark Tattersall […]Read more
