A charity ball which gave ladies the chance to dig out their wedding dresses raised £2,000 for good causes.

Stateley Brides, on King Street, Belper, staged the event at luxury venue Morley Hayes, Morley in aid of Cancer Research UK and the Neo Natal Unit at Derby Royal Hospital.

The boutique opened five years ago at the start of the recession and will celebrate its fifth anniversary in May.

Owner Leanne Whysall said: “It was a massive success. Ladies were encouraged to wear their wedding dresses, prom dresses, bridesmaid dresses again.”
