A wonderful day was had in Norwich's well-known Forum for the annual, Spring Wedding Fair!
An intimate setting for many a bride and groom to be; including other members of the public in the iconic setting of the Forum in the heart of Norwich.
Other exhibitors included Lou Lou Loves - Vintage decor hire and many a florist and cake maker. High end, sophistacted and full of buzz was the name of the day.
Of course, I was there with my bridal shoes and am getting somewhat better at decorating my stall - there's certainly an art to it! With the help of my mother as pictured, we got there!
The next Milly J wedding show will be next month! Stay tuned for that.

I was once again very kindly invited to inspire through my own personal story and as to how I ended up in the footwear Industry. Joined by other individuals from various professions, from a high ranked police officer, to solicitors and museum curators. The day was constructed through a series of small grouped talks, inspiring pupils at Sheringham school to think of what other alternatives there are to the usual careers out there today.
My area of expertise was creativity, the arts and designs.
