A woman has praised a wedding shop for making disabled people feel less invisible by displaying one of its dresses on a mannequin in a wheelchair.
Beth Wilson, 36, has been using a wheelchair for five years and was delighted to see the display in The White Collection Bridal Boutique, in Portishead, Somerset.
“The new wedding shop in town has a wheelchair-using mannequin and it shouldn’t be exciting but it’s the first time I’ve ever seen disability portrayed in a shop window,” she wrote in a tweet, which has been liked more than 3,400 times.
