Stanthorpe Border Post - - LIFE | WEDDINGS -

WHEN plan­ning their dream wed­ding Donna Tor­risi and Philip Du-Bri­ard knew they wanted a ca­sual but beau­ti­ful cer­e­mony and re­cep­tion with good food, great wine and entertainment. And that was ex­actly what they got.

The cou­ple tied the knot in a vine­yard cer­e­mony at The Sum­mit Es­tate Win­ery on April 14 at 3.30pm in front of 140 guests.

Donna Du-Bri­ard (nee Tor­risi), el­dest daugh­ter of Julie and Frank Tor­risi, from Stan­thorpe, was given away by her fa­ther.

Mrs Du-Bri­ard had Ja­clyn Slack as Maid of Hon­our and brides­maids Amanda

Tor­risi, Rebecca Tor­risi and Tamra Vede­lago by her side the whole time.

“Get­ting dressed with my girls and fam­ily at home, I thought it would of been a lot more chaotic how­ever it was calm with a few happy tears be­ing shared,” Mrs Du-Bri­ard said.

“I was so ex­cited to get out of the car when we ar­rived at the win­ery, and then I looked at all of the beau­ti­ful peo­ple stand­ing there and I felt over­whelmed how­ever full of hap­pi­ness.”

Philip Du-Bri­ard, only child of Mon­ica Du-Bri­ard, from Scone, had best man Stuart McFadzen at his side and was sup­ported by grooms men Ben Campbell and Marcey Meilak.

Mr Du-Bri­ard’s daugh­ter Halle Du-Bri­ard was the flower girl at the event while Zac Boucher was the page boy.

“I re­mem­ber see­ing my daugh­ter Halle walk down the aisle and then I looked up and saw Donna, my fu­ture wife,” Mr Du-Bri­ard said.

“She was ab­so­lutely beau­ti­ful and my eyes welled up with love.”

Mrs Du-Baird said she was over­whelmed with hap­pi­ness see­ing all of the peo­ple wait­ing for her at the win­ery.

“I just loved cel­e­brat­ing with all of the peo­ple who mean so much to us and be­com­ing Mrs Du-Bri­ard,” she said.

“The day just goes too quickly.”

The cou­ple went on to hon­ey­moon in Fiji and will be call­ing Scone, New South Wales, their home.
