The White House mission means that many small wedding businesses, which would normally operate from home, can now take the plunge and exhibit their work in a prominent town venue.

By drawing in the support of other local businesses, the couple have developed a place for all the bride's wedding needs.

Nicola has 25 years experience in fashion and design and wedding gowns, and also runs the successful Bridal Connections business in Wisbech.

Through Nicola's skill a bride will be able to find her ideal designed wedding dress made to measure and a bespoke design -which she will start from a sketch.

She can also offer a 'top-to-toe' service which does as it says on the package, providing the right tiara, shoes, dress, hair and make-up.

The three-storey White House is having a complete overhaul and has a variety of rooms, from a salon, live cutting room - where brides can see their dress take shape, a gallery room filled with businesses such as jewellery, photography, cakes, florist and even a chocolatier, there is even a consulting room for finance as well as a bridal showroom.

Martin, said: "We will be bringing everything under one roof, and give the bride the Gok Wan treatment.

"And we are collaborating with like-minded companies and organisations - there is so much talent available in this area and we want to build on this."

Nicola added: "We want to help brides to fulfil their dreams."
