The History of the Wedding Dress

Janet Stain returned to Harrogate with another one of her delightful talks. Janet has a wonderful way of delivering in-depth knowledge and history on a topic as well as providing amusing quotes and sayings about the subject matter. She brought along a wonderful array of wedding dresses from different periods and best of all she didn’t mind us handling them after the talk.
They were difficult to photograph but I did manage to take pictures of some of the wonderful accessories she also brought along.
