Notice: Ripley Museum Exhibition – Village Weddings

In a complete change of tack from our previous exhibition, The Story of Newark Mill, our new subject is Village Weddings.

We try to look at the origins of wedding traditions and how they have changed.

On a local level, Send and Ripley are villages where generations of the same family have lived and married. The exhibition has photos from about 1870 onwards and in at least one case, three generations of the same family.

The centre piece is a beautiful WWII dress made from parachute silk and we are indebted to Jackie Gibbs for loaning it and Miss Bush Bridal Boutique for helping with its presentation.

The exhibition will be on every Saturday from 10-12 until the end of October. Please get in touch if you would like to visit at any other time-
