Styled Shoot Inspiration

Hand-crafted custom converse may be what we are best known for, but the limits of custom wedding shoes know no bounds and we dive feet first into every opportunity to pour our creative spirit into something new. So as more and more people came to us seeking personalised Doc Martens, the answer was a resounding yes!

Head off the beaten track

Bringing an edgier, more alternative vibe, these flat wedding shoes deliver style and comfort in spades. They’re also a great choice for all weathers – ideal if you’re planning an autumn or winter wedding, or you’d like to celebrate somewhere less conventional outside. Think a woodland glade where heels may struggle on the uneven surface, or a wild meadow where your tipi reception awaits.

Likewise, wear the Doc Martens inside at a warehouse venue for the most epic first dance photos ever. Simply spin and show off your kicks. In an offbeat location, only flat wedding shoes will do, but that doesn’t mean you are limited in style.

Alternative romance custom wedding shoes

Not so long ago we had the chance to put our ideas for custom wedding shoes into practice. We created a pair of personalised Dr Martens for a decadent boho styled shoot, photographed by Cole Photography and featured on Unconventional Wedding. A style forward yet alternative approach to wedding shoes, they bring attention to detail to the entire outfit. This bride’s punky look is truly unique.

The boots add just the right element of attitude to the offbeat styled shoot. Delicately personalised with doves in flight and bride lettering, there was a bit of whimsy there too. The black and white contrast makes the customisation clear to see when you kick up your dress to wow your guests. This minimal yet unmistakable design delivers the rock chick look at its best for custom wedding shoes.

Stay true to you

Take your time choosing the design and finish for your flat wedding shoes. Painted and embroidered options can sound great on paper but when you open the box, the quality of the customisation just might not be there.

Our approach to personalised Dr Martens gives you room to be as creative as you like. Add lettering, motifs, dates and even song lyrics! Staying true to your style, we meticulously bring your vision to life in flat wedding shoes that feel totally you. Ones you’ll want to wear again and again, too.

For the ultimate boho look, team your custom wedding shoes with a leather jacket and statement headpiece. Think a decadent metallic headdress for a touch of glam, or an oversized floral crown in inky, saturated colours. We could even echo the palette for your shoes. Your look will be polished but totally unpredictable, showcasing your personality and surprising your guests.

It all starts with your choice of custom wedding shoes. So, take the path less trodden and discover the alternative wedding shoes that are made for you. Choose from bespoke Dr Martens, Vans, Converse, Swarovski designs and more.
