138 brides-to-be with their families and friends raised $900 for Breast Cancer Support Services at the 2016 Mackay Wedding Showcase on Sunday, 7th August, 2016.

Here are some shots from the day…


Many of the exhibits this year used an eclectic mix of unfinished timber, hessian, string, lace and florals to create a relaxed Vintage Country theme.

JR Cake Designs had a woodland inspired tree stump cake on display

Forever Yours Marriage Celebrant was framed by “barn” doors

Absolute Weddings and Events had LED Edison bulbs hanging from the rafters

Stoney Creek Farm is a genuine country wedding venue

Bridal Magic’s exhibit featured a bare wooden table and cart wheel chandelier

Absolute Weddings and Events brought along their giant lawn games for attendees to try out

This year there were live demonstrations throughout the day, plus two fashion parades.

Corrisa from Funk It Up gave brides-to-be tips on keeping their makeup looking fresh throughout the day

Emily and Monique from Starcut Flowers showed the males (and the mothers-of-the-groom) the right way to pin a corsage and buttonhole

David from Man About Menswear and Formal Hire organised a tie tying competition for the men…

…before Natan showed them all up!
