A THREE day exhibition of wedding dresses through the ages has been raising money for a village church and will be coming the Ludlow in the summer.

It was held in support of St Giles Church in Ludford and will come to St Laurence Church in Ludlow later in the summer.

The exhibition features more than 30 dresses dating between 1914 and 1976. It shows how styles have changed.

Margaret Edwards, who is one of the organisers, said that the dresses have be provided by people from around the town.

Graeme Parks, has been making stands for the dresses.

“People are so much bigger now and it is very striking how small many of the dresses are. Women were so tiny in the past,” said Ms Edwards.

Dresses and people were much smaller back in 1952 when the Queen started her reign.
