Muster wedding a best for Dolly

IT MAY have been Dolly Cordony's third wedding but the 70-plus-year-old said it was her best ever.

Dolly married Kevin Leahy at her Muster home, The Bra Bar, in the Amamoor Crk State Forest in front of more than 200 excited guests yesterday.

Dress at the wedding was a mix of Muster casual come Muster glam with many of the guests dressing in costume for the big day.

Driven to the wedding in an all terrain vehicle with the song Hello Dolly sounding out in the background the breast cancer survivor was glowing.

She wore a purple gown, patterned riding boots and a white feather boa teamed with a matching white hat and purple flower. Civil celebrant Irene Thompson oversaw the event, under the watchful eyes of three Muster bishops.

It was a short but meaningful ceremony with a touch of humour, especially when Kevin couldn't remember Dolly's name and Dolly told everyone he hadn't read the fine print.

"It was perfect," Dolly said.

"It was the best wedding. I couldn't have asked for anything more with all these beautiful people around.

Kevin agreed.

"You couldn't beat that for a wedding no matter how much you paid," he said.

The pair was planning to party on into the wee hours last night and then buckle themselves in for one of the best Muster honeymoon ever.

With plenty of top talent on show they are sure to have a great time.
