Wasn't it a lovely, yet rather scary touch, to have a wedding dress in the background as Mary scared Norris senseless in Haworth last night on Coronation Street in Canada?
We can exclusively reveal that the dress is an original, vintage 1930's jacquard wedding dress in cream satin, with a pattern of trailing branches, in a subtle gold metallic thread, which gives the dress a subtle shimmer.
The dress is simply made, so may have originally been made by the bride herself, or perhaps by a local seamstress back in the 30's. The dress has typically 1930's puffed sleeves and a short train to the back of the dress. Combined with a stunning 1930's headpiece - mixing tiny wax flowers (very popular at the time) with sparking diamantes, and topped off with a cream lace veil.
The dress was supplied to Corrie by vintage dress boutique Freudian Slips Vintage, Visit their website here.
Thanks to our blogger Yoork for the screen-grab.
