A charity run bridal boutique is re-opening for business after being badly affected by COVID-19.
Lindsey Lodge has relaunched The Wedding Loft, which offers brides on a budget both brand new and pre-loved gowns to suit any style, size and budget.
“Our bridal boutique has had a very difficult start as a result of COVID-19,” said Lindsey Lodge Senior Manager for retail Jenny Baynham.
“The boutique itself had to close having only just opened due to lockdown, and rules and restrictions around weddings have made it a very difficult marketplace to be in.
“We’re supporting more people than ever in our 29-year history at Lindsey Lodge and our shops, including The Wedding Loft, play a big part in raising the much-needed funds to meet our £3.7 million annual running costs.”
In addition to its current stock of dresses, The Wedding Loft has also received a boost from local business Osh Gosh Gowns, after they donated a number of brand-new wedding dresses ahead of its relaunch.
Lindsey’s Wedding Loft is now taking bookings for appointments. Brides will be able to try on up to five dresses. Only two people are allowed to join the bride-to-be for the appointment. Face coverings and gloves will be required, and social distancing rules will need to be observed.
