Elegance and fun key to local wedding
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.
TIMELESS: Ashley and Caitlin Poulter planned their wedding day with vintage elegance in mind.
