BRIDE Kim wore a sweetheart, tulle gown with full tulle skirt and exquisitely beaded waist that twinkled as she moved.
This was the gown she fell in love with in the window of Walter Davis, tried on and knew it felt perfect.
Everything else fell into place for the day she became Mrs Turner with each fine detail planned out as winner of Ballarat's Dream Wedding competition.
The newlywed's first response was relief after walking down the aisle yesterday at the Ballaarat Mechanic's Institute.
Groom Morgan Turner impressed at how smoothly the whole wedding day panned out but Mrs Turner said there were still a few nerves.
"It feels unbelievable," Mrs Turner said.
"The whole lead-up to the day and meeting all the suppliers has been great."
Wedding planner and stylist Kelly-Louise Warner and photographer Dave Bailey banded together with an idea to promote small business in Ballarat and make one couple's wedding dream come true.
Everything from dresses, rings, hair, make-up, photography, cars, the cake and even the room the bride and her bridesmaids stayed in on the wedding eve was donated with the day estimated to be worth about $20,000.
Ms Warner said the concept was developed about four months ago, the couple chosen via a Facebook submission two months ago - then it was full-steam planning.
"We had a lot of fun doing it and were so overwhelmed by the suppliers and things donated - we didn't have to do a lot of chasing at all," Ms Warner said.
"Kim and Morgan really struck a chord with us. They're such a beautiful couple and so clearly in love against the odds...we got to know them so well, they're just delightful."
Ms Warner and Mr Bailey were unsure if they would plan another such wedding. They wanted to ensure everything about this wedding ran smoothly first.
