The event always sees a fantastic footfall of bride and grooms to be along with their family and friends. This year's show felt particularly smooth and relaxed with both the suppliers and visitors enjoying the extensive range of services on offer.
Wew look forward to seeing you at the two day, Showground event in February!

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.
