I Do!

Wedding dresses over 250 years

As we celebrate this year of royal weddings, what better excuse than to delve into our collection and share our most exquisite wedding dresses with you.

From gowns and veils to bonnets and shoes, the extravagance of the 1770s to the elegance of 2018, this stunning exhibition tells the stories of the personal choices made by brides-to be as they prepare to say ‘I do’.

Whether it’s something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, I Do! shines a spotlight on wedding dress fashions over the past 250 years.
