The final was being held at the Six Ways Stadium in Worcester; an amazing room overlooking the pitch.
I spent an hour or two watching the girls in rehearsals, thinking back to a time not too long ago where I was on their side of the stage, nervous, excited and completely unaware of the amazing journey I was about to become a part of.
Later on in the afternoon, I managed to get a quick half an hour with Kev Wise, the brilliant Miss England photographer for some shots around the grounds. He had been busy all morning running the Miss Photogenic round with the girls so I was so happy that he had a spare 10 minutes to fit me in!
I absolutely love working with Kev... He gets some amazing shots and has an eye for angles I would never have even thought of. One image in particular I absolutely love and has gone straight into my portfolio.
The brilliant Kiss Me Kate were kind enough to lend me another dress from their fabulous collection to wear for the evening. I absolutely love their dresses and can't recommend them more.
It was great to be able to watch the show from a new perspective. Miss Black Country was the first pageant I had seen let alone entered so I was happy to be able to sit this side of the classic white veils and enjoy the show. Rachael Barker, our wonderful regional director and Joshua Williams, our superb Mr Birmingham were the hosts for the evening and wow didn't they do a great job?! I was so impressed with the whole show.
Massive congratulations to Laura, our new Miss Worcestershire! She is going to have such an amazing year and was a very deserving winner.
It was lovely to catch up with all of the Miss England family too! I will be so sad in a few months when it is time to hand over my crown too! But until then... I have lots more planned and can't wait to carry on working hard to be an ambassador for the area.
