While we are busy putting together our lovely upcoming Vintage Bride Wedding Fair in Toowoomba I though it would be lovely to showcase a gorgeous vintage inspired wedding from Preston Chapel & Manor in Toowoomba which was photographed by Lizzy C Photography.
Lizzy travelled from Melbourne up to Toowoomba for Fiona and Dylan’s Wedding. She recalls, “I might be a little biased because I know the couple personally, but what an amazing day! Really, it was the most carefully thought-out, fun and beautifully romantic wedding. It was very special for my husband, Dave, and me, since we both got to play our little parts; me as photographer and Dave as a bridesmaid!”
“The girls (and Dave) prepared for the day at Vacy Hall, a beautiful historic mansion in downtown Toowoomba, and were driven to the Preston Village Chapel in style in a pristine 1936 Dodge limousine. Fiona looked stunning as she stepped through the doors of the chapel. As she walked down the aisle, Dylan couldn’t help but shed a few tears at the sight of her. (Dylan, I hope you don’t mind me sharing this with the world but it was truly lovely!)”
“If you feel as though you are seeing double when looking at these photos, don’t despair; you kind of are. Fiona’s lovely twin sister Christina was maid of honour, and was responsible for many of the beautiful crafty details. You can see some of Christina’s amazing work on her blog. Fiona is an active blogger herself; you can check out her award-winning blog here.”
“The party kicked on at the adjoining Preston Manor as the sun set over the valley. The guests laughed and cried with the happy couple during the speeches, and giggled uncontrollably while playing dress-up in the photo booth.”
