A wedding shop in Leyland has relocated to a brand new premises - just around the corner from their old one.

The Ivory Bridal Boutique, now on Chapel Brow, has moved from Hough Lane to make room for a larger range of dresses and suits.

Owner Paula Pugh, 33, spent three years working every Saturday at a bridal shop before making the jump to start her own business.

She said: “When the bridal shop I was working in closed I spoke to my husband about what I should do and he said we should open our own.

“We ploughed all our savings into it which was very scary, but well worth it in the end.

“I love my job. Seeing the bride’s face light up when they see their dress is why I do it. I just love seeing them happy.”

Paula caught the bridal bug after getting engaged to sweetheart Colin.

They finally tied the knot themselves with a ceremony at St James’ Church after three years’ planning the wedding.
