I cannot recommend Rock My Shoes highly enough. I was organising a hen party for my best friend and Nicky not only delivered a fun and entertaining, hands on workshop, she arranged the venue, gifts for the bride, compiled a playlist, took photos for us, and even helped me organise the activities we had planned for later that day. Not only that, but Nicky travelled up to Glasgow to do the workshop with us, and had a reception of bubbles waiting for us too. All our girls had a great day, and our shoes and accessories all looked fab! Most importantly, our bride was delighted with her hen party. Rock My Shoes is the perfect workshop for hennies, birthday parties, or even just a different type of get together with the girls. Thanks again for everything Nicky, you are a star!

I booked the workshop for my sisters hen party as I wanted something a bit different and unexpected.I can honestly say it was fantastic!!Nicky was brilliant, she really got in to the spirit of the party and was so much fun.We had a festival themed night out planned so decided to decorate wellies which was really good fun, Nicky had found loads of great designs to help inspire us as well.She also made it really easy to understand what we were doing quickly.I am so glad I found Nicky's web site, she really helped me make my sisters hen that extra bit special and all the girls got to take away something sparkly from the weekend which they were all really happy about. We got lots of comments on the dance floor that evening about our blinged up wellies :).I would recommend this workshop 100%.

Nicky helped me arrange a surprise hen party at the Radisson Blu, Hotel and Spa in Manchester.

She organised a full packaged crystal shoe and accessories workshop with welcome cocktails, afternoon tea, overnight stay and spa access.

Throughout the whole organisation and booking of the event Nicky was extremely helpful and took all the stress away from me, which was amazing.

The whole experience was a complete surprise for the bride to be and she loved every minute.

Nicky was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic in her workshop, which intern allowed us to create wonderful shoes and accessories.

The Radisson Blu was a wonderful choice, staff we incredibly friendly, we all felt like princesses being well looked after with our own private rooms and waitresses.

All things considered the Hen do was brilliant all thanks to Nicky and the fabulous staff at the Radisson Blu, Manchester.
