SLIDESHOW - Wedding Dress Festival at Billy Parish Church

Billy Parish church held a wedding dress festival on Saturday and Sunday to mark 200 yeas since the consecration of the church.

Billy Mountain has been a place of prayer for over 1000 years. The name Billy means sacred tree, so maybe even in Pre-Christian times, it was a sacred site.

The church of today is the third parish church on the site. The wedding dresses are kindly on loan from local familes and every dress tells its own story.
