Dream dresses in aid of hospice on offer at county pop-up boutique

BRIDES-to-be are flocking to a pop-up boutique in Worcester to find their dream dresses.

St Richard’s Hospice launched ‘Snowdrops Bridal’ at 34 Chapel Walk in the Crowngate Shopping Centre in mid-February and have welcomed hundreds of shoppers.

The boutique which is open Wednesday to Saturday until the end of March, offers new and preloved wedding finery with all funds raised supporting the charity’s care for patients and loved ones across Worcestershire.

One delighted bride-to-be is Stephanie Whitby, who is marrying her fiancé Daniel Matthews in May next year. The couple are both Worcestershire born and raised and currently living in Surrey.

Stephanie said: “The experience of the bridal boutique itself was magical! It was professional, yet managed to keep a personal touch.

“The first dress I tried on was the ‘one’ and I came away with it the same day, as well as a veil. It was the exact experience I was hoping for finding my wedding dress, and made that much sweeter that it all went towards the most amazing cause. I want to thank everyone who helped and made it so special.”

The couple had added motivation for shopping at Snowdrops Bridal.

“St Richard’s took care of Dan’s dad, Pete, when he was ill,” said Stephanie. “The carers were always wonderful and kind, so it has always been a charity close to our hearts.”

The pair got engaged on Stephanie’s birthday last September and will marry at Bredenbury Court Barns.
