Wedding bells were ringing as the latest series of the BBC’s popular programme Don’t Tell the Bride hit the big screen last night (Thursday, June 24) and a St Albans bridal boutique was star of the show.
The Bride, in George Street, featured as the home of the bride-to-be’s dream wedding dress, as series nine of the hit programme got under way.
Owner Polly Parkin said: “We were very excited but we didn’t even know for definite until two days ago if we would feature as the programme maker can never promise anything.
“One of my lovely shop assistants Nikki Sedgley was in shot and helped the bride.
“It was filmed last summer so we started to wonder if it was ever going to happen!

“A producer and camera man came in to film and they were there the whole day and they seemed to have a lot of fun.
“It was a shame as I was away in Devon that week but we did feature as a backdrop on an episode of Holby City once before!”
