Photographing Weddings in Sussex means I get to visit a lot of rural venues, either marquees in fields, converted barns or pretty rural churches. Although rain ruining a wedding is a lot rarer than people imagine, often the bride or female guests find themselves sinking into a damp lawn. Sole Mates are little plastic protectors that stop stiletto heels sinking into the ground, getting trapped in grates or decking and offer protection from scratching and scuffing. These things do happen, I once had to saw a brides shoe out of some decking with the multi-tool I keep in my camera bag. Sole Mates are a great and inexpensive wedding tip that should be part of any bride’s handbag.
