We’ll be tending to the shoe needs of brides to be that have registered to come along and we’ll be rubbing shoulders with the fabulous Yarwood-White Jewellery and Nicki MacFarlane Bridesmaids. There will also be great advice and tips on wedding day beauty from Alexis Daly and nail demos and beauty from West One Beauty.
Spaces are limited but there is still time to register your interest and come and spend the evening with yours truly – simply call 0207 224 7414 for more details.
Come and see us from 6-9pm – we can’t wait to meet you!
A lot of inspiration for our shoe designs comes from the 20s and 30s. Here at Rachel Simpson Shoes we take essences of these bygone eras and mix them with contemporary trends to create simply beautiful shoes for brides to be.
Our gorgeous firey-haired friend Kelly from Boho Weddings and Events told us about a 20s inspired photo shoot she was planning so we agreed to send her some shoes for what looks like an incredible day’s photography.
We caught up with Kelly afterwards and asked her why this particular era ticked all her boxes…”The idea originally was to just do a few promotional shots but as we talked more it came apparent that we saw the potential to do more than that and so it turned into a full on photo shoot. I’ve always loved that era, the styling and the dresses were just so stunning back then, so we thought it was the perfect idea for us to use this decade to create some stunning photography.”
Kelly wears Hettie, currently in our Sale!
There’s a huge bandwagon passing the doors of our offices and we’ve jumping on it! We’re sending massive, great big, enormous congratulations to Katherine and William as they tie the knot in front of the whole world on the 29th.
And if you, like Wills and Kate, are getting married this Friday (or at the weekend), all of us at Rachel Simpson Shoes HQ wish you every happiness and are keeping our fingers crossed for gorgeous weather to shine down on every bride to be!
We’ll be waiting with baited breath to see Kate’s choice of shoes. We were asked by The Wedding Channel Couture Show to design a shoe for Kate, which was displayed in the foyer of the show in a British designers area as part of New York Bridal Week. We think this is definitely a Royal Wedding contender…
Who knows, she might even wear our very own royalty – Duchess…
Since the launch of Rachel Simpson Shoes in 2008 and the re-launch of our website this year, we are now attracting thousands of visitors to the site every month, from all over the UK and across the world.
Our bridal and occasion shoes are a mixture of vintage inspiration taken from the 20s through to the 40s and the contemporary, creating beautiful, affordable and flattering shoes.
We have an exciting limited sponsorship opportunity available to designers, bridal companies and other such talented folk to feature as a link on the website and be personally endorsed by Rachel Simpson Shoes.
In order to ensure that our sponsored friends are the perfect fit we will only approve links that associate naturally with the Rachel Simpson brand. There are a very limited number available to give the selected companies optimum exposure.
To find out more about our rates, availability and the small print, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org today.
The internet is a wonderful thing, sitting in the comfort of your own home and buying shoes whilst your feet are up sounds like heaven. But there’s nothing more exciting and fulfilling for us than being with a bride-to-be when she tries on a pair of our shoes and fall in love for the second time (fiance comes first!) and we at Rachel Simpson Shoes absolutely love being part of some of the most incredible wedding shows across the country.
Every year we spend a long time choosing the right shows for us and this year there has been a huge influx of very cool, inspired events that we simply can’t say no to. Here’s a run down of just a few of them, that we’d love to see you at – come and say hi before you buy!
Sunday 10th April – The Vintage Wedding Fair – Leamington Spa
Saturday 16th April – A Most Curious Wedding Fair – Norwich
Sunday 17th April – Designer Bridal Show – Hotel Du Vin
Flicking through the pages of our favourite local newspapers over the weekend and we were very pleased to see our shoes featured at the recent Designer Vintage Bridal Show – the reason? The style pages of the Birmingham Sunday Mercury and the Birmingham Mail asked the big question “what will Kate wear to walk down the aisle next month” and how amazing would it be to get THAT call eh?
Here’s hoping Rachel Simpson Shoes are on her wish list…
Birmingham Sunday Mercury…

It’s Oxfam’s International Women’s Day 2011 today and here at Rachel Simpson Shoes, as a successful business ran by women, we just wanted to emphasise the incredible work the charity is doing to celebrate the strengths and achievements of women across the world, 100 years since the first awareness day was launched.
Everything you need to know about the cause can be found on their website and we hope that anyone who does take time to read it, will join us and millions of other women worldwide to take note of this amazing achievement.
