The Mallala Museum held an exhibition of wedding gowns from their collection during History Month May 2018. The event called "Down the Aisle - Wedding dresses through the years" featured 19 gowns displayed throughout the museum.
Hettie Alvina Williams married Sydney Garfield Tiller in the Mallala Methodist Church on 5th September 1936. The petite bride wore a gown of white marocain and lace fitting to the figure and over the hips and merging into a train. The pintucked panels over the hips created an elegant design. The draping at the cowl neckline was made of lace with a pleated frill. The long tight fitting sleeves were also draped with lace to the elbow and featured the pleated frill. An insert of lace with pleated edging featured in the centre of the train. The tulle bridal veil was worn with a halo of orange blossom.
