Yet more amazing wedding shoes are winging their way to the Queens & Bowl stock rooms as I type! This time it’s 2 beautiful ranges from the First Lady of wedding shoes herself - Filippa Scott. Queens & Bowl will be stocking a selection of both the Filippa Scott and Fifi ranges very shortly. We’ve carefully selected the most glamorous, vintage-inspired styles that we know you’ll love.
For 13 years, Filippa’s slick and sparkly creations have been the favourite of bridal fashion editors over the globe and many a celeb has worn one of her her designs on their Big Day. Styles come in a range of heel heights and toe shapes and you can take your pick from twinkly diamante, beaded details or sleek and silky. All styles are fashioned out of sumptious satin with leather inners, making them excellent value for money as well as style statements.
So if your look is vintage elegance with a touch of glamour, you’ll be spoiled for choice.
We are so happy to have the most amazing range of vintage-inspired wedding shoes coming into stock at Queens & Bowl! These beautiful little numbers are by Rachel Simpson, the UK based wedding shoe designer extraordinaire!
The Rachel Simpson collection of wedding shoes comes in a variety of heel heights and toe shapes and are adorned with little 1920s and 1930s details – a pearl or two here, a ribbon there. The glamorous feel and elegant sillouhettes are perfect for both vintage and boho-themed dresses – Jenny Packham and Temperley dresses are crying out for them! We can’t wait to get them in stock.
The Rachel Simpson ethos -’ sumptuous materials, elegant syling, vintage inspiration…’
We couldn’t have put it better ourselves.
We just love the amazingly dramatic wedding tiaras, headdresses and jewellery from sisters Stephanie and Nicola Ball. Halo & Co’s beautiful pieces are guarantees to get plenty of ‘oohs’ and ‘ahhs’ on your big day! We’ll be stocking unusual statement bridal tiaras, headbands and necklaces covered in crystals, diamante and pearls - these pieces are not for shrinking violets…
If your wedding dress has clean lines, or you’ve gone for one of the latest slinky styles then these pieces will work perfectly by adding some sophisticated glamour without going overboard. So whatever statement you choose to make – tiara, necklace or something else equally bejeweled, it won’t just be you who remembers it for years to come.
We’re proud to announce that we’ll be stocking some amazingly glamourous collections from Austrailan designer Stephanie Browne. If you’re looking for something bold and out of the ordinary for your wedding, then look no further that Stephanie’s range.
As you can see here, there’s something for everyone – whether it’s an understated (but still glam!) brooch, or an attention-grabbing headpiece! Our favourites include the amazing Charleston Necklace and head-turning St Tropez Headpiece.
Every piece brings together a combination of classic vintage nostalgia and elegant, modern design. Stephanie has a real passion for creating truly stunning bridal and fashion jewellery inspired by the 1920s Showgirl era. The ranges include crystal and feather hair accessories, headbands and tiaras; plus bejewelled necklaces, bracelets, brooches and earrings.
All are lovingly hand-crafted to exceedingly high standards, using only the best materials such as Swarovski crystals, rhodium non-tarnishing bases, emu feather and silk ribbons. The legendary quality of the pieces, the production of which has been overseen by Stephanie Browne for over 20 years, means that these pieces make not only beautiful wedding jewellery, but also a fantastic investment piece for the future.
The timeless elegance of every piece means that a Stephanie Browne piece will never go out of style. If there ever was a case of justifying a splurge as an ‘investment buy’ then this is genuinely it!
