A special exhibition of bridal bliss down the decades is taking place at Lenzie Union Parish Church this month to raise cash to help people with dementia.

Members of Lenzie and District Flower Club are staging the Wedding Dress and Flower Festival on Friday, April 24, and Saturday, April 25. The ladies from the club have researched bridal bouquets and floral arrangements from the 1930s to the present day, with floral arrangements to accompany each dress.

As well as the displays from 2-4pm and 6.30-8.30pm on Friday, and from 10am-3pm on Saturday, there will be tea, coffee and home baking. Donation at the door include a programme and entry to the tearoom.

Proceeds from the event are being donated to ‘Heart for Art’, the CrossReach project which helps people with dementia to express themselves creatively. Member Iris Williamson said: “We are sure the love and marriage event will be a memorable one for everyone.
