Introducing Charlotte Mills Bridal Shoes

Today I have the pleasure in introducing an amazing new bridal shoe designer, Charlotte Mills. Her first collection has just launched and I’m sure you will join me in drooling over her gorgeous designs.


Love hearts are the inspiration for Charlotte’s debut collection which are all handmade in Spain. Her shoes are made to the highest quality using a range of laser cutting, applique and embroidery to create unique styles. I love the fact that each shoe is hand finished with a silver sixpence and the leather sole is embossed with the phrase “Something old, Something new, Something borrowed, Something blue and a silver sixpence in her shoe.”

I asked Charlotte what advice she would give to anyone when choosing shoes for their big day. Her advice is “When choosing your wedding shoes go with your heart – even if you think you can’t see your shoes under your dress, you will still get glimpses of them throughout the day. Get your photographer to include them in shots and let them be a talking point and not fade into the background. You should fall in LOVE with your wedding shoes and want to wear them again and again. Each time you put them on after your big day, the memories will come flooding back. Go for a style which has longevity and can be worn again. Choose a similar heel height to what you normally wear and give them a test run around the house to break them in.”

My Top 7 Places To Get Married in Las Vegas

This is my guide to where I think it would be amazing to get married in Las Vegas. There are so many brilliant venues that cater for all different budgets and styles of wedding, that it would be impossible to mention them all. I have fallen in love with Las Vegas during my visits and it is my mission to visit every single venue it has to offer.



First on my list is the Bellagio. With it’s iconic fountains and stunning Terraazza, this is an elegant and sophisticated venue. They have 2 different wedding chapels, the Terrazza and Courtyard to choose for your wedding ceremony and numerous packages for each venue. If you want five star treatment, the Bellagio is perfect for you.


Chapel in the Clouds

Next on my list is The Chapel in the Clouds at the Stratosphere. Imagine the biggest day of your lives taking place 1149 feet in the air, among the clouds. You can choose from 2 different chapels, the Observation Deck or the private balcony on Level 112. If you want Las Vegas as the backdrop for your wedding photographs, you can’t beat the Chapel in the Clouds.


Chapel of the Flowers

The Chapel of the Flowers is one of the most popular wedding chapels in the whole of Vegas. I personally know more than 10 couples who have been married here and they all rave about it! You can choose from indoor and outdoor weddings and can be picked up in a white limo!


The Venetian

The Venetian is my personal favourite. They have so many options it makes it nearly impossible to choose! You can be married in front of a waterfall, on the rooftop terrace, in one of their beautiful chapels or even on a gondola! No matter where you choose, you are guaranteed to have stunning photographs.



The Wynn is a very close second. I can personally say the food at this hotel is delicious and the staff were amazing. Aside from their chapels, you can also be married in the Zen Spa, the Lake of Dreams or next to a 90 foot waterfall in the lagoon!


Las Vegas Sign

Where is more iconic than being married under the Las Vegas sign??? And thanks to the Las Vegas Wedding Waggon, you can do it! Las Vegas Wedding Wagon is a mobile service, just choose your location, date, time and ceremony on their online booking system and they will meet you there!

Graceland Wedding Chapel

For the full Vegas wedding experience, book the Graceland Wedding Chapel. Join the list of people to be married here and you will be maxing with the likes of Bon Jovi and Billy Ray Cyrus. Have Elvis walk you down the aisle, conduct the ceremony or serenade you, whatever you choose it will be ‘Always on My Mind’!!!!
