Haircraft in Oak Road transformed into a tea room for the day as customers brought along their own wedding photos and enjoyed homemade cakes and scones

while they reminisced and shared stories.

And with a life size cut out of Harry and Meghan in the salon, it was as if the golden couple was there to join in the fun ahead of Saturday’s nuptials.

Caroline Howell, who has run the salon in Oak Road for 23 years said: “This is the fifth cream tea we have held to raise funds for Saint Francis Hospice.

“We don’t always have a theme but this seemed like the perfect opportunity to get everyone together.

“The customers really love it and it gives them a chance to come together and meet other people and it is all for a good cause!”
