Wimborne Minster’s Model Town – Dorset

“Look there is where Daddy works” shouted our friend Fred’s 4 year old granddaughter when she looked into the tiny church at Wimborne Minster’s Model Village.

Her Daddy is a wedding photographer, and as they peeked inside the tiny church at Wimborne Minster’s Model Town they could see a wedding taking place. She was thrilled and kept returning to the model and asking about Daddy’s photographs!
