It was so good last year that local charity Foyle Hospice have decided to bring it back.

As revealed by the Derry Journal earlier this year Brides Across the Bridge is back and this year it promises to be bigger and better than ever.

Last year 748 people gathered at Guildhall Square for the first ever Guinness World Record event. The sun shone and the women (and men) of the North West came out in style to support the event.

Last year’s event has officially been declared as an official world record by the Guinness World Records after setting a BRAND NEW World Record for 748 brides gathered in a single location.

This year’s event will take place on July 5 (Saturday).

Come along and celebrate Brides Across The Bridge setting a BRAND NEW Guinness World Record!

You don’t have to be a bride yourself to take part in this unique event; if your big day is still ahead of you then why not borrow a wedding gown from a friend or wear one belonging to a relative. The wedding dress can also be from any cultural background such as an Indian Sari or Japanese Kimono.

Brides are asked to pay £10 with proceeds raised going to Foyle Hospice.

Rachel Bruce said: “We were overwhelmed with the support from participants, supporters, onlookers and everyone involved in last year’s event. This was a highlight for Foyle Hospice and the City in a year of celebrations.

“We are thoroughly grateful to all support received from local businesses last year and a special mention of thanks to the Police Service of Northern Ireland for the assistance in the lead up to Brides Across The Bridge 2013.

“We are back this year again on the 5th of July hoping for a bigger and better day out with even more beautiful blushing brides. This year the event has some fantastic sponsors on-board who are making the big day possible – Sarah’s Shoes, Beautiful Day Bridal and DaVinci’s Hotel.

You can register now online at www.foylehospice.com or visit the following locations;
