Getting You And Your Family Ready For The Summer Ahead..

Finally, after a somewhat slow start, summer is creeping up on us. The air is feeling warmer and the sun is starting to shine…how is it almost June already!?

Suddenly we have festivals, garden parties, holidays and sporting events upon us; we need to look our best and make sure these are all firmly in our diaries. That’s where we can help you. From sorting invites, organising transport or sourcing the perfect hat, to booking an emergency blow dry at your home, let us make things run smoothly for you.

Perhaps you are going away and need your beloved pet looked after in your own home, by someone trustworthy? Let us know and we will get it sorted.

Maybe you’re gathering a group of friends for an epic weekend at Wilderness or day out at Ascot? Let us know and we’ll organise transport and make sure you ride home in comfort.

Need a last minute escape but not sure where to go? We will give you some enticing options.

Even the small things like checking you in for your flights; nothing is too big or too small, so just drop us a line.

We look forward to hearing from you.

It’s amazing how much pain women can bear in the name of fashion. We’ve all crammed our feet into pumps that threaten to turn our toes into mulch, all the time convincing ourselves the shoes just need to be “broken in”. It’s like the fairy tale all over again, the step-sister refusing to accept the shoe doesn’t fit.

Except it does at Sante + Wade. Here every woman is Cinderella and everyone is invited to the ball!

The brand was created to challenge the perceptions that tall women shouldn’t wear heels, or that wider fitting shoes couldn’t look feminine. Their premium collection is all about inclusivity, targeting women who have found it almost impossible to find design-led shoes to fit their lifestyle. The styles are for every occasion, with a lively mix of colours, textures and prints. Lovingly designed in London and made in Portugal, they guarantee comfort without compromising style.
