Norman-Carson wedding
GARETH Ian Norman and former Islander Donna Louise Carson were married in one of Australia’s oldest homesteads, Emu Bottom, near Melbourne.

The bridegroom, an electrician, is the son of Mr and Mrs Kerry Norman, of Palmerston North, New Zealand.

The bride, a copywriter, is the daughter of Mr and Mrs Alan Carson, of Staplers Road, Newport.

The bride wore an A-line gown with finely draped midriff, softly gathered tulle skirt and elaborate beaded bodice, with matching veil and hair slide.

She carried a bouquet of native Australian flowers.

She was attended by Susan Lyons and Fiona Guerin, who wore cream dresses, and Lauren and Holly Carson (bride’s nieces), who also wore a cream dress and a silver and grey tulle dress respectively.

They carried bouquets similar to bride’s, except for five-year-old Holly, who held a single giant protea, which is native to Australia.

Best man was Callum Vining.

The bridegroom was also attended by groomsmen Sam McLaughlin and Andrew Norman (bridegroom’s brother).

Registrar Steve Mason officiated.

A reception was held at Emu Bottom Homestead.
