Say ‘I Do’ and offer items for exhibition

An exhibition of wedding dresses and baptism gowns from yesteryear is being held this summer and organisers are encouraging people to contribute to the display.

The event takes place at St Bartholomew’s Church, in Whittingham, from June 14 to 17, to celebrate the many ceremonies that have taken place there.

The parish’s PCC is behind the event and want the display to feature gowns from as far back as possible.

Organisers are keen to hear from anyone who wants to lend dresses to the display.

Those involved are interested in all aspects of weddings and christenings, including the organising and planning of them, as well as photographs or stories.

Any items loaned will be insured and under surveillance all day. The church will be locked at night.
