The historic Bega Showground pavilion was transformed into Alice in Wonderland when the Bega AP&H Society held its annual debutante ball.
More than 300 guests enjoyed the evening with music by No Pressure No Diamonds from Canberra.
Nineteen beautiful debutantes and partners were presented to John Watkin accompanied by Sharon Watkin by Matron of Honour Ebony Martin.
The debs and their partners were preceded down the red carpet by delightful flowergirls Lily Byrnes and Miley Curtis dressed as Alice and handsome page boys Lawson Umbers and Clay Hoyland as the Mad Hatter.
The most amazing cake was made by Barbara Westmacott and cut by debutante Keely Coleman.
The debs entered the hall through the keyhole made by Garry Cooper.
Speeches were given on behalf of the debutantes and partners by Kaylah Faulkner and Rohan Barber thanking everyone for a night to remember.
Thanks go to Jan Watling, Kylie D'Arcy, Keri Blacker, Tracy Coleman and Morgan Durrant-Curtis for all the organisation and training they put into making the night such a success, and to all who helped in any way. The debutantes and their partners were
