A Fine Romance … a history of weddings through the 20th century

June 10 @ 10:00 am - July 10 @ 5:00 pm

Paddington Antique Centre Fine Romance

Weddings are the theme at Paddington Antique Centre from June 10 – for a whole month! Head along to see this gorgeous fun and informative showcase of weddings through the ages.

More than 40 wedding gowns from 1910 through to the 1980s, including all the major eras of the 20th century, will be on display on rotation with a number of gowns available for sale after the exhibition. There is also a great display of engagement rings and wedding appropriate jewellery as well as ideas for romantic, vintage-style weddings including ideas for gifts. Local vendor exhibits include gorgeous table styling by Gemma at Inspired by Love Events, a delicious wedding cake display by Cakes by Judy C in Ashgrove, and flowers by a local florist. Roaring Twenties – Vintage Wedding Car Hire and the fabulous 1928 Chrysler, Bonnie, will also join on selected dates throughout the exhibition.

Not sure what a trousseau is? This idea ( the clothes, linen, and other belongings collected by a bride for her marriage) will be fully explored and include lingerie and luggage.

Today modern couples are incorporating things from the past into their weddings in many different ways. Estate engagements rings can be stunning and are highly sort after particularly Art Deco styles. Table settings and reception themes often incorporate a vintage theme because it has a softness and romanticism. A great way for couples to add something special to their day is to incorporate old and interesting things in a new and fresh way.

June at Paddington Antique Centre offers a fun way for brides, couples and anyone involved in an up-and-coming wedding to get some great ideas but also for the general public to reminisce about that special day in everyone’s life.
