A fascinating exhibition highlighting the history, artistry and allure of wedding dresses across the ages.

Experience a kaleidoscope of bridal fashion that spans several centuries, showcasing the exquisite craftsmanship and evolving trends that have defined one of the most memorable days in countless lives. The exhibition explores how wedding gown styles and materials have changed over the centuries, and how their adaptions reveal as much about social history as fashion and fame.

Each one of the dresses on display has a story to tell and includes dresses specifically created for blockbuster movies, to replicas of gowns worn by royal brides.

Several of the dresses on display at the exhibition are on loan to the Cathedral with kind permission from Kevin Thornhill.
