A new clothing shop in Holt is to offer brides everything from 'clean-cut designer looks through to floaty boho gowns'.

Kim Butcher, 36, is opening The Norfolk Bride in Lees Yard, Holt, aiming to offer designer gowns priced from £1,000 to £2,500.

The Burnham Market resident, who has a background in medical and veterinary sales, said: 'My overheads are as lean as possible which will enable me to offer the highest quality, handmade designer gowns at very affordable prices.

'Our brides can find styles ranging from clean-cut designer looks through to floaty boho gowns. All of which are created using the finest silks, hand-beaded Italian and French laces.'

Ms Butcher said she was working exclusively with the designer Sarah Bussey of Ivory & Co.

She said she hoped to offer something different to internet retailers and larger chain stores, which sold synthetic, mass produced bridal wear.
