Sharee Feist, Sophie Cordeiro and Gillian Dawson have put together the Tulle Wedding Expo, which will feature small local wedding businesses, as well as their own.

‘We want to do the complete opposite to the large, overwhelming and expensive bridal fairs by creating an intimate boutique style expo,’ Ms Dawson said.

As well as a bridal fashion show at noon, the expo will give access to a Wanneroo pioneer wedding dress on display at the museum.

The dress was worn by Marguerite Rosalind (Rosa) Stubberfield on December 1, 1934 when she married Charles Frederick Thomas Pearsall at St. Albans Anglican Church in Highgate.

It was handmade of cream silk with georgette sleeves and diamante buttons, with fabric lilies on the bodice made from green velvet ribbon twisted around wire.

Now in its fourth year, the expo will be held at the Wanneroo Library and Cultural Centre on Sunday from 10am to 3.30pm.
