El­e­gance and fun key to lo­cal wed­ding

Wangaratta Chronicle - North East Wedding Guide - - FRONT PAGE -

AN el­e­gant black, white and pink color theme and a num­ber of vin­tage touches made the March wed­ding of Caitlin Poul­ter to Ash­ley Clay­ton one to re­mem­ber for the happy cou­ple.

The pair met three years ago while on sep­a­rate nights out at Wan­garatta’s North East­ern Ho­tel, and Mrs Poul­ter said they have been “in­sep­a­ra­ble” ever since.

The cou­ple chose the peace­ful, green oa­sis of Wan­garatta’s Mer­riwa Park as the spe­cial spot for their nup­tials, as the park had a spe­cial mean­ing for them both.

For Mrs Clay­ton, Mer­riwa Park had spe­cial mem­o­ries of her feed­ing the ducks on out­ings with her grand­par­ents, while Mr Clay­ton’s par­ents were mar­ried there.

The pair de­cided on a friend’s clas­sic car as their wed­ding car to add a touch of old fash­ioned el­e­gance, while Mrs Poul­ter wore a vin­tage, strap­less lace dress.

The new­ly­weds had their first dance to New Zealand artist Tiki Taane’s cover song Use Some­body.

Mrs Clay­ton said the cou­ple are look­ing for­ward to go­ing on a Whit­sun­days hon­ey­moon later this year, and are in the mid­dle of plan­ning on build­ing a home to­gether.

The cer­e­mony was fol­lowed with one of the cou­ple’s fa­vorite songs, Happy To­gether by The Tur­tles, be­ing played.

The wed­ding was fol­lowed by a fun re­cep­tion at the Wan­garatta Foot­ball Club, where the color theme was car­ried on with the dec­o­ra­tions, which in­cluded white pil­lar cen­ter­pieces made by grooms­man An­drew Page.

The col­ors were even seen in the cake, a present from best man Gary Ling­ham, which was a Mad Hat­ter themed top­sy­turvy cake which had three dif­fer­ent fla­vored tiers – choco­late, vanilla and jaffa.
