Newlywed Edwina Bartholomew thanks wedding guests for ‘epic’ night

Tying the knot in her grandmother’s vintage lace gown, Edwina Bartholomew’s country wedding was the epitome of class.

But it appears the blushing bride, her groom and their gaggle of guests got a little more rowdy during the reception that followed on Saturday night.

Taking to Instagram the morning after, the Sunrise star revealed the evening was complete with ‘bogan moth plagues’ and ‘g-strings on the dance floor’.

She continued by alluding to the raucous reception, writing: ‘From hail storms, bogan moth plagues, generators running out of diesel, kids left colouring-in in the dark, g-strings on the dance floor and camp fire sing-a-longs. It was epic.’

Edwina’s famous Channel 7 colleagues were quick to leave comments cooing over the special day.

The stars were among the 160 guests who watched Edwina tie the knot with her long-time partner Neil Varcoe.

The couple chose to wed at their Warramba property, located in the Capertee Valley, between Lithgow and Mudgee, in rural New South Wales.

Edwina won praise for her stunning wedding dress which has been passed down through three generations of her family.

It was worn by her much-loved grandmother in 1944, and was updated with the help of Melbourne designer Sonia Cappellazzo.
