It puts a smile on everyone’s face from flower girls to grooms to grandmothers of the bride… and especially the bride herself.” Expect to see beautiful gowns from Maria Modes, Cheshire Bridal Wear, Knutsford Wedding Gallery, Agape Bridal and 7th Heaven, groomswear from KM Lowry and Youngs Hire plus mother of the bride fashions.
