As I mentioned in my previous post we had two sets of photograph bunting at our wedding. One was above the cake and consisted of family wedding photos and photos from my friend's mum's album - the one that started it off. The other bunting was above our card and message table and was made from all the photographs that I collected from charity shops and antique centres in the months before our wedding.
The following two photos are of family members on my mum's side but we sadly do not know who they were. I am pleased to get to include them here.
This next set of photos are the ones from my friend's mum's album.
|This photograph is interesting as the bridesmaids on the left and right are the|
same as in the previous picture, wearing the same dresses. I think the bridesmaid
stood next to the bride was the bride in the previous picture.
|Also the 1940s. The bride appears to have a floral|
headpiece with a veil attached. She is wearing
a lovely suit.
Look how her bouquet covers almost one third of her.
She also has a lucky horseshoe.
|I think this is 1940s or late 1930s.|
I wonder if this was taken outside their house.
The bride appears to be wearing a long jacket over
The groom has white gloves, a stripy tie and a waistcoat.
|What an ornate wedding cake!|
You can see the lovely shape of the bride's dress and
the detail of the lace. Her veil is much more of a birdcage style/
|Look how happy this couple are. I am assuming|
this was taken in the churchyard.
Her dress is a beautiful shape and the full skirt is
balance by the lovely pointy shoes.
|No veil here but a wonderful fit and flare dress.|
Wrist length gloves, a small poesy and many
|The first ring shot. Doesn't the groom look proud!?|
Her dress is made of gorgeous lace with a slip dress
underneath. Again, a short, flared veil.
|I love this because both the bride and groom are spectacle wearers, the bride|
has a fine pair of cats eyes frames going on.
Her dress is more of a column and has a funnel neck. Again the veil is two lengths.
|I think that she looks beautiful and elegant in |
such a simple shaped dress. The below bust bow
detail perfectly finishes it off.
The following pictures are the random ones that I found on my treasure hunts.
|The detail is quite hard to see on this photo but I think it is |
also from the 1930s. Although much is not clear you can see
the beaming bridesmaid on the right which is great.
|This bride and groom are also from Weert and had their|
pictures taken at the same studio. Their outfits are very
similar. On the back of this picture it is handwritten
to a Mr and Mrs Thompson.
|I am going for early 1940s for this one as the groom looks to be in uniform |
but the bride and bridesmaid's dresses still have a 1930s look to them.
They have such wonderful big smiles.
|This is William and Colleen, a 1940s wedding.|
The picture is underexposed so the detail is
unclear but I think it conveys a sense of the
happiness of the day which I love.
|I think this is from the 1940s. I wonder if |
this is taken outside their house?
The groom is in a three piece suit.
The first glimpse in these photos of a wedding car.
She looks such a perfect 1950s bride, her dress is a gorgeous shape.
If you are interested in vintage wedding style and details then you may find Vintage Weddings by Marnie Fogg a good book to refer to. I bought it before my wedding as a source of inspiration and loved it even though I have not read it all yet. If you are planning a vintage wedding it gives advice on dress styles to suit you, menus, entertainment, drinks etc.
