Say Yes To The Dress

Say Yes to the Dress is a factual entertainment format featuring brides-to-be who are searching for their wedding dress. The new spin off series being made by True North Television is set in a real wedding dress boutique in the North of England; Ava Rose Hamilton in Colne, Lancashire. The show is being fronted by leading fashion consultant Gok Wan who will offer his knowledge and wisdom to the lucky brides. Each bride featured on the show is given the opportunity to try on wedding gowns; some of her choice and some others selected by the stylists who have been specifically briefed on the bride’s requirements.

The bride-to-be’s family and close friends are invited to join her at the appointment and asked to share their thoughts on the look and style of the dresses she tries on. At the end of each appointment, brides are asked if they have found their perfect dress and if they want to ‘Say Yes to the Dress’.

The show is celebratory and inclusive, and we are keen to represent a wide range of people with inspirational stories from a wide array of backgrounds. We really want to ensure we are getting the word out to invite as many women as possible to apply. For this first series, we are filming presently until the start of December so if you’re still hunting for your dream dress get in touch with us immediately!

Please email and let us help find you your dream dress.

LSE research study:

Trans and non-binary experiences of the criminal justice system 

Call for research participants

What is this research about: The aim of this research is to explore trans and non-binary people's experiences of the criminal justice system (e.g. prison, courts, parole, probation, police) because there is very little research on this area. The research will be carried out through a series of interviews with trans and non-binary people where we will discuss their experiences and how they feel about their experiences. Hopefully, this study will help fill the lack of knowledge around trans and non-binary people's experiences of criminal justice so that criminal justice policy and practice can be better informed. 
Interviews will start in September 2018 and is expected to finish in August 2019. All participants would remain anonymous in accordance with the LSE ethical guidelines and will be treated with sensitivity and respect. 
Who do you want to talk to: Trans and non-binary people with experience of criminal justice. This includes offenders, victims of crime, witnesses to crime and professionals (e.g. trans police officers). 
Who is carrying it out: My name is Paul Behan and I am a PhD student in the Department of Social Policy at LSE. My field of study is criminology. I am a graduate of the School of Law at Trinity College Dublin and the Centre for Criminology at the University of Oxford. I am also a director of a youth focused LGBT charity in Ireland called ShoutOut (
How do I take part or find out more information: Email or write to me at the Department of Social Policy, London School of Economics, Old Building, Houghton Street, London, WC2A 2AE.
