Eight textile and design A-level students at Weston College have been selling hair accessories, garters and decorations at a wedding fair in Bridgwater.

Nicola Stent, a textile and design lecturer, who also gained a First Class degree at Weston College, said: “It’s a way to use skills they have developed on their A-level and get them to think about the commercial world in which they are going to eventually work.”

The Griffens Carnival Club Wedding Fair, held in Bridgwater and Albion Rugby Club, was open to the public from 11am to 4pm, and also included a fashion show.
