Edwina and her husband Neil Varcoe wed in a stunning ceremony on Warramba farm near rural Lithgow, NSW. The couple exchanged vows in front of friends and family on April 21 at the 1980s farmhouse they lovingly restored.

Edwina wore a vintage dress which has been worn by three generations of her family, including her much-loved Grandmother in 1944. The gown was altered by Melbourne couturier Sonia Cappellazzo, of Cappellazzo Couture.

The 34-year-old previously revealed to WHO that the dress was not made by a designer, but described the gown as “an old dress, vintage, country romantic.”
