A wedding dress lover has opened a new bridal boutique in her back garden to give brides a "laid-back" experience. 

Vicky Parfitt, who has always been involved in the fashion business, decided to turn her love of wedding dresses into her job and set up Lucky Sixpence Bridal just before the coronavirus pandemic.

"I wanted to create a laid-back space in the countryside where they could relax and enjoy the process of choosing a dress."

Brides-to-be can book appointments to come and try on dresses in the comfort of the boutique, with Ms Parfitt on hand to offer guidance and advice.

Every bride will leave with their own 'lucky sixpence' as a token of good luck.
