Love in bloom for lo­cal cou­ple

Wangaratta Chronicle - North East Wedding Guide - - NEWS -

HY­DRANGEAS played a big part in the Septem­ber 21 mar­riage of Sharon Gor­man and Dean Wood­berry. The cou­ple be­came en­gaged in April 2012 af­ter Dean pro­posed to Sharon in a hy­drangea park in the coun­try town of Tum­barumba. “Hy­drangeas were sig­nif­i­cant in our fam­ily, as they grew hap­pily in my grand­par­ents’ gar­den as a happy sym­bol for their mar­riage,” Sharon said. “I loved that Dean had sur­prised me with all of that plan­ning and had made it a spe­cial day.” Much of the plan­ning for the big day took place in early 2013. “I wanted hy­drangeas for our sta­tionery, and lots of pink roses for a spring wed­ding, and Dean wanted his fam­ily church and a limo, and vin­tage trac­tor pho­tos. She said the cou­ple sourced much of what they needed for the day in the North East, in­clud­ing flo­ral items from Naked Lily, jew­ellery and bri­dal party presents from Wan­garatta Jew­ellery, hair and makeup at Ruby Rose hair­dressers, and Sharon’s dress from Jack and Jill Bri­dal in Al­bury. The dress was an Ella de­sign from Stella York which was tulle and dolce satin with a beaded waist and flow­ing skirt. The brides­maids wore black ge­or­gette off the shoul­der full length gowns made by Shep­par­ton busi­ness Threadsville with hot pink roses in their hair and bou­quets, while Dean and his grooms­men got their suits from Tal­is­man in Mooroopna. The wed­ding was held at the Holy Trin­ity Cathe­dral in Wan­garatta. As Sharon en­tered the church, her year 12 stu­dents from Notre Dame Col­lege had left let­ters of good wishes at­tached to the church pews, while the bride’s friend and col­league Ryan Black and his wife sang “An­gels Brought Me Here”. “It meant so much to have all our fam­ily and friends there to share our spe­cial mo­ment in time,” Sharon said. The pair hon­ey­mooned in Twin Waters, Queens­land and have made their home in Ox­ley.
