I was invited by the co founder and chairman of the East Anglian Air team recently to visit thier air base in Norwich. Patrick Peal is also the master Cordwainer of the Worshipful Company of Cordwainers, so it was a delight to share the footwear connection too.
I was taken around the area and got to meet and chat candidly to the truly inspiring team that make up the team.
Look out for connections with Milly J Shoes and the charity soon!

Held at Dunston Hall Hotel, in Ipswich Road, Norwich on Sunday, more than 60 exhibitors showed off what was on offer for a couple’s big day. Lots off exhibitors took to the venue from florists to top local retailers and cake makers. Among them was of course my brand - Milly J Shoes and Bridal Shoes By Milly J.
Helped out by my mother, pictured here with me in our matching skirts and shoes! The next big event will be the two day Wedding Show in the Norwich Showground.

I am thrilled that a year after opening the shop, I have been shortlisted for 3 prestigious, EDP Bride Wedding Awards. Although I have been designing and making shoes for 7 years now, the brick and mortar shop was launched last year.
Via 3 rigourous judging days, I am shortlisted for:
Newcomer of the Year
Bridal Jeweller or accessory Designer of the Year
Bride Innovation of the Year.
The award's night takes place later in the month. Fingers crossed!

Last year, I was delighted to be approached by two local ladies who had won awards in the prestigious, EDP Bride awards. They wanted to put together an editiorial including local bridal suppliers who had also won awards within the ceremony. So I was thrilled, as I had not applied to win an award!
Karen and Emily brought together a Fauvism shoot that was bursting with local creativity and talent with me designing and making the shoes.
The shot went to print, including in Your Norfolk Wedding and Bride Magazine.
