Kate Middleton-inspired wedding dress turning heads in St Ives

MOST brides want to feel like a princess on their big day, and one St Ives bridal shop is offering the chance to at least look like one.

Jan L bridal salon in Bridge Street took delivery of a Kate Middleton-inspired wedding dress by manufacturer Justin Alexander last week and says it has already attracted a lot of attention. Whereas the now-iconic Sarah Burton dress made from lace especially created by the Royal School of Needlework and material sourced by the designer, is thought to have cost £250,000, the replica dress is a snip at £1,850. Made from satin and lace, it has applique in the same style as the real thing and is available in a range of sizes, so you don’t have to have the Duchess of Cambridge’s size six figure.

Shop owner Jan Lambert said: “I have got it on a stand and I have got a photo of the royal wedding dress next to it. A lady came and had a look. She said she had seen the real dress, and that that was a really good copy. I have had one girl come in for a fitting.”

* Pictured modelling the dress at St Ives bridge is newly-wed Clare Wood.
