EDWARD Dingle and Tamara De Somerville incorporated history as they tied the knot into the future at St James Anglican Church, Nar Nar Goon, on Saturday.
The wedding of the Nar Nar Goon couple featured a number of items from Edward’s father, Bernie Dingle’s, Light Horse and Field Artillery Museum in Nar Nar Goon.
The couple arrived in a pair horse landau carriage driven by Bernie who was dressed in a royal coachman’s full state dress livery. The newly wed couple were accorded a guard of honour formed by four swords held by the four groomsmen, who each donned royal court frock coats.
A lone piper topped the formal ceremony off as he led the carriage off to the reception at the Soldiers Memorial Hall in Nar Nar Goon.
Bernie said the whole ceremony added a lot of colour to the day for the couple and about 100 guests.
“It was special to me as the museum is going to fall into Edward’s hands when I carry on.”
“His wedding was my last job with the carriage. I have now passed it on to Edward.”
