The beautiful clothes on display were on loan from the Hope House Costume Museum in Derbyshire having been collected by its owner and vintage clothes enthusiast Notty Hornblower.

They featured authentic wedding dresses, ball gowns and day dresses which have been bought or donated to the museum over the years.
