|My friend's mum as a bridesmaid in the 1950s.|
I love this whole outfit and I kept it in mind
when looking for my own dress.
|Relatives, names unknown, 1900s?|
He is so very dapper.
I'm afraid that she reminds me slightly of Miss Havisham
due to the exposure. I hope she had a much happier life
|My Granny (coming up 83) and my Grandad.|
|Granny and Grandad 1949. Granny wearing a dress lent to her by a|
neighbour. Look how it swirls out onto the floor. The veil and headpiece
look pre 1940s to me.
|Grandma's bridesmaids. You can see her writing above naming Joan|
|Mr O's maternal grandparents 1945.|
What a totally gorgeous dress.
|Mr O's paternal grandparents 1938.|
The bride and bridesmaid look to have some kind of amazing pompom accessory.
The bride's belt is a lovely detail.
|My Great Aunt and Uncle in 1950.|
She has a tripple buttonhole!
I like the best dress and nice cardigan approach.
|My parents 1973. |
Mum made her dress from a Vogue pattern. The bridesmaid
on the left is my aunt who made her dress. The other two
bridesmaid's dresses were made by someone else.
|Photograph bunting in all it's glory.|
|In close up.|
We hung two lines over the cake.
The bottom line includes some photographs from the album that I mentioned at the start.
|Mr O's mum.|
Giant ric rac and mini peg details.
|Look at those massive bouquets. I would say this is from the 1920s.|
Delicate shoes for the grown ups and ankle socks for the children!
|This is the wedding of my Granny's brother in 1937.|
The bridesmaid dress material is interesting with those hoops. Look at the
huge puffed sleeves.
A big contrast to the sleekness of the bride's dress.
|I think this is probably the 1930s.|
Shame the huge bouquets obscure the dresses a bit.
The bride's veil is long, you can see it almost touches her train.
The bridesmaid almost has leg of mutton sleeves.
|A 1940's wedding, obviously he is in uniform|
but you can also tell by her suit. No fancy shoes
for her, just practical ones. I love her handbag.
|Another 1940's wedding.|
I like her jaunty hat.
It looks like he may have pinstriped trousers on.
