Elegantly decorated, with full-length mirrors, special changing facilities, chandeliers, and a sofa for friends and family, the shop’s bridal section is designed to allow you to look for your dream dress in relaxed surroundings.

Teresa Harris, who manages the bridal shop, said: “There’s some beautiful dresses on offer, ranging from vintage 1950s dresses through to more modern styles.

“We have four to five pre-loved dresses donated each month so our stock is always changing, but at the moment, we have dresses in white, cream, and with red detailing.

“Our dresses start from around £75 and go up to about £300, and the stories behind our dresses are lovely too.

“Recently, a man whose wife was cared for by our hospice donated her dress for someone else to enjoy, and many people who generously donate dresses or outfits are pleased to know that something so special to them will help someone else have a special day too.

“My team and I look forward to welcoming brides-to-be and their family and friends to our shop and sharing in the excitement of that all important dress shopping!”

The shop is open between 9.30am and 5pm Monday to Saturday.

To find out more, or for more information about donating an outfit, please call the shop on 01403 211829.
