Dare to Be Different
Welcome to Red Shoe Wedding Design where creativity in weddings design is our signature. We at Red Shoe Event Design are aware that planning the perfect Wedding should be carefully considered to ensure that your event is orchestrated perfectly.
Our Red Shoe Event Design team will work closely with you to create a wedding that brings to life your dreams and expectations for the perfect day that will leave you and your guests with wonderful memories.
I have since 2004 designed not only weddings but lots of occasions both private and corporate.
I have managed to cultivate good relationships with not only my clients but suppliers too.Anyone who knows me will know why I chose the name Red Shoe for the business.
It is simple, I love Red Shoes! My love affair started when I was five years old and was being bought shoes for school. My mother took me to the shop and there in the window was a gorgeous pair of red T bar shoes that I instantly fell in love with. I begged her to let me try them on even though she wanted to buy me the boring old school shoes. She obliged and the love affair was born.
My mother did not buy me the Red Shoes, as they were, according to my mother, not suitable for school. I promised myself that one day when I grew up I was going buy my own Red Shoes and wear them whenever or wherever I liked.
Red shoes for me symbolises freedom of choice, individuality, confidence, decadence and good times.
When thinking about names for the company, at a spa with my business partner she, knowing my passion for red shoes and what they symbolised for me, suggested Red Shoes. I realised that this was my 'red shoes' moment. It was my chance at freedom from the day to day routine of working for someone else, my ticket to express my individuality, passion, creativity and to LOVE what I do every day. Red Shoe was a great name and epitomised symbolically the promise I made to myself as a child.
Welcome to Red Shoe Events, the place to bring your dreams and dare to be different! Enjoy....
