Onscreen versus real-life: Which of Zoe Ventoura’s wedding dresses do you prefer?

packed to the rafters

Which wedding dress do you prefer? Zoe Ventoura’s onscreen frock worn on Packed To The Rafters (left) or her real-life gown worn in November 2015?

Packed To The Rafters.

It’s the drama that helped launch the careers of Jessica Marais and Hugh Sheridan.

And if you ask us, it’s the Logie award-winning program that has helped revolutionise Australian television in recent times.

As dedicated Rafters fans, tuning in to Channel Seven every Tuesday night was our ritual from 2008 to 2013.

If there was anything more memorable than Rachel and Jake hooking up, or Melissa tragically passing away (we still get teary), it would be the wedding between Ben and Melissa (played by Hugh Sheridan and Zoe Ventoura accordingly).

There’s no question that Melissa’s wedding dress on the show designed by Leonie Grace was to die for! With a laced bodice, and finishing just above the knees, it deviated from the often traditional floor-length gown complete with a veil.

Now Melissa’s portrayer Zoe has got married in real life, the 34-year-old tying the knot with fellow actor Dan MacPherson quite recently.

Let’s have a look at her real-life wedding dress designed by Johanna Johnson and compare some notes, shall we?

Then, head over to our Facebook page and let us know which dress you prefer!
