Wedding dress

The ‘Religion and Belief’ case at Harborough Museum includes objects that reflect many significant events in people’s lives. Weddings are one of those happy events, and the display includes a Gold medieval ‘Poesy’ ring found at Illston. Rings are a continuous circle and symbolise a never ending union. As such they have been used to mark love, engagements and marriages.

Everyone will be familiar with the importance of a wedding dress for the bride on their wedding day, and we are very lucky to have the beautiful wedding Dress worn by Louisa Woodgate at her wedding to Leonard Ashley on the 11th April, 1929.”
