THE LUCKY HORSESHOE WEDDING TRADITION
~
"A farmer travelling with his load, Picked up a horseshoe in the road, And nailed it fast to his barn door,
That Luck might down upon him pour, That every blessing known in life, Might crown his homestead and his wife,
And never any kind of harm, Descend upon his growing farm..." (James Thomas Fields)

Inspired by vintage photographs of her grandparent’s wedding in the Forties, designer Charlotte has revived the forgotten wedding tradition of the lucky horseshoe into a stylish and unique bridal keepsake, destined to bring love, luck, health and happiness to the recipients!
Designed with the contemporary and vintage bride in mind, our collection of beautifully decorated lucky wedding horseshoes are the perfect keepsake to treasure forever - or to pass down to future generations! Created using authentic lightweight traditional silver horseshoes - which are then hand-finished with silk ribbons, freshwater pearls, Swarovski crystals or vintage embellishments.
Our heirloom-quality lucky wedding horseshoes will provide your photographer with beautiful photo opportunities. We suggest holding with, or as a quirky alternative to, your bridal bouquet or display on your cake/gift table at your wedding reception. 
Our lucky wedding horseshoes make for beautiful bridal shower gifts or as a special keepsake for yourself!

 
The Lucky Horseshoe Legend
As legend goes, the 10th Century Archbishop of Canterbury, St. Dunstan, a former blacksmith, was fortunate to outwit the devil! It is believed the devil approached St. Dunstan to shoe his hoof; St.Dunstan realised his customer was the devil and nailed the shoe on as painfully as he could, causing the devil to beg for mercy. St. Dunstan agreed to remove the shoe on condition that the devil agreed to never enter a place where a horseshoe was hung. Thus, the horseshoe became a symbol of good fortune!
In Ancient Greece it was believed a horseshoe lucky, as the shape suggested the crescent of a new moon – thought to be a symbol of fertility and prosperity.
After the wedding we suggest hanging somewhere within the home. Place the horseshoe facing up – to hold the luck so that it does not run out! If hung above a door, guests who enter and leave through the same door which the horseshoe is hung, are thought to take some luck with them!
