Ely Cathedral, Ely, UK
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 block buster movies, to replicas of gowns worn by royal brides.
A significant feature of the exhibition is a hand picked assortment of bridal veils from the collection at the Royal School of Needlework. The RSN was founded in 1872 to revive the beautiful art form of embroidery and they have worked on several wedding gowns including the dress worn by Katherine, Princess of Wales, in 2011.
Wednesday 14 February – Sunday 17 March, 2024
