You’re in for a treat this afternoon as we take a look at the stunning new wedding shoe collection from our super-talented Sponsor Charlotte Mills Bridal. The master of all things sparkling, girly and pretty, Charlotte’s creations instantly send us weak at the knees and are an absolute must for brides wanting standout footwear that’s fashionable and fun.

Expanding on her already impressive range, the new collection includes several new shoe and handbag designs for SS16/17, which are available to buy online, at selected bridal boutiques and directly from Miss Mill’s sweet boutique, located in the gorgeous village of Saddleworth, Oldham.

So without further ado we’ll leave you to swoon over the new collection with the leading lady herself on hand to explain a little more about the dazzling designs…

Tell us where the inspiration for the new collection came from…

charlotte says: For the SS16/17 season, my designs take inspiration from Havana nights with a bridal twist. Metallics, including rose gold, and soft nude nappa leathers make the styles perfect to wear again beyond the big day.

To put the collection together I studied Vintage Havana, its fashion and designs from the art deco and art nouveau eras. I love the architecture and style of this time and the fact it’s still relevant today.

Overall I’d say my collections are always a romantic, yet fun mix of something old and something new.

Do you have a personal favourite design within the new collection?

I love Calle – it’s so on trend and looks amazing on the foot. It’s a timeless style which could easily be worn again after the wedding day has been and gone.

What are the main colours, fabrics and details used within the new collection?

Metallics in pale gold and rose gold with ivory and nude leathers. We have also added a gorgeous new glitter which looks like crushed pearls.

Which design from the new collection would you suggest for brides wanting to make a real style statement with their footwear?

Cindy really makes a statement with the block heel and oversized bow. The glitter is amazing when it catches the light and the leather has a pearlized finish too.
