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.

Lucy Hewlett married Reginald Manning (parents of Edward Manning - Donor of the wedding gown) in the Woolsheds Methodist Church near Wasleys S.A. on 18th July 1936. Lucy's gown was made of ivory satin with the bodice cut on the cross and pintucking used for decorative effect. The empire line bodice featured the long waisted blouson effect of the period with a half belt at the back. The dress had a collar and long fitted sleeves that were pintucked and shirred at the wrist. The gown featured a small train.
