The Colonial Club was expanded in size yet again this year, in order to hold the audience for the Mr & Miss Vintage UK 2019 Finals! The country’s most impeccably-dressed were represented here at Twinwood, with the finalists consisting of ten ladies and five gents. Again, the standard was exceedingly high across the board, and after the herculean task of singling out two ultimate winners, we are delighted to announce Lou Garton as Miss Vintage UK 2019, and Dean Turner as Mr Vintage UK 2019!
In the Ladies competition, the glamorously-attired line-up was (above, from left to right): Abbie Grant, Amy Pierpoint, Ella Francis, Helen Berting and Joanne Limonova, (and below, from left to right): Katie Morrison, Laura Thornton, Lou Garton, Mazzy Westwood and Wioleta Shaw.
Mazzy Westwood took fourth place, with Helen Berting in third place, Joanne Limonova in second place, and Lou Garton was awarded the ultimate prize as our first place winner!
In the Mens competition, our dashingly dapper gents were (from left to right): Charlie Roy, Sam Marks, Philip Catley, Dean Turner and James Allen.
Philip Catley was awarded second place, with Dean Turner winning first place! The other three gents shared a joint runners-up position.
