Tess Newall was “distraught” when she was told the 150 year old antique wedding dress which had belonged to her great-great grandmother and which she wore on her own wedding day had disappeared. It all went wrong when she dropped the dress off at a dry cleaners. Bad timing as soon after Kleen Cleaners in Edinburgh went bust. It looked like the dress was lost forever but Ms Newall refused to give up and appealed on social media for help. Her post was shared more than 200,000 times and eventually… “My parents received a phone call this afternoon from the landlord of the property where the dry cleaners is, whose nephew had read about the dress. He really searched and he found a pile of old lace which he realised was what he thought was the dress. My parents went straight there and were just overjoyed and couldn’t believe it was the dress, not cleaned, and still with its ticket.” Job done everyone goes home happy. Not quite. Unfortunately they were not able to take back the dress there and then. A representative from sequestrators Wylie & Bisset informed them that the dress had to go back to his office in Glasgow for “procedural reasons”. Ms Newall added “This is unbelievable and my mum was beside herself, but they have assured us that it will be delivered safely back to us… It’s going to be apparently driven from Edinburgh to my mum and dad’s house.” Now that’s what you call a belated wedding present.
