Introducing the beautiful new collection from Charlotte Mills, and here to tell us more is Charlotte herself!
She says: “For as long as I can remember I’ve had a passion for shoes – I couldn’t imagine designing anything else! It’s amazing to be able to design something which someone will love and want to wear on such a special day, and be able to show a bit of personality, too!”
“I think it’s clear to see that love hearts are the main inspiration for the collection, each style incorporates them in a unique and individual way. I love art deco and art nouveau, so I looked at heart shapes and how I could bring in an element of the architecture of these eras, but with a modern twist, to create the designs.
“If brides are looking for something completely flat but still stylish and fun, Anabel will fit the bill perfectly. This style is a ballerina pump with the signature heart on the front, available in a variety of colours.”
We LOVE the hearts with Just Married or Happily Ever After embroidery – they are a definite talking point, and perfect for cool wedding photographs!
Charlotte continues: “Andrea is my personal favourite – this beauty has an art deco feel with the cut and the block heel. The fine glitter adds a touch of decadence. This, like Anabel, can be customised with lots of different heart options.
“For brides who wants to stand out from the crowd, Alexis in pink and Ana in pastel blue could be the shoes for you! They are guaranteed to look amazing on your big day but, like all Charlotte Mills shoes, can also be worn again and again.
“Ankle ties also play a part in the new collection, featured on Bianca, Beth and Blossom. These are perfect for style-conscious brides who love fashion and don’t want to compromise on their wedding day.
“T-bars were a massive hit with the first collection, so we have created two new designs: Betty and Blondie. Not only do they have unique t-bar shapes, they also have that added sparkle.
“More and more brides are getting married abroad and as our flat style, Anabel has been so popular we have added in two more flat options. Just because you don’t want to wear a heel on your wedding day, doesn’t mean you can’t wear gorgeous and elegant shoes! Blossom and Blondie are perfect for destination weddings, tipi and festival weddings.”
“The inspiration for this shoot was fun, colourful and instafabulous! These pics show wedding shoes don’t have to be traditional, you can have something a little different and let your personality shine through your shoes!”

“This shoot was stripped-back urban glam with festoon lighting, floral walls, white washed bricks and wooden floors, and not forgetting the incredible swing! The idea for the shoot was to focus on the shoes, while adding pops of colour and texture to complement the designs.”
