Wedding Wednesday – Flapper Girl?

I found this photograph in a tin I brought from my mum and dad. There are loads of photographs – some old and others more recent. I know some of the people, can guess at a few of the others and have no idea about the majority.

I have on my “to do” list getting my mum to go through the photographs and trying to put more names to faces.

Anyway, this particular photograph falls in to the category of “I have no idea who they are”.

I thought that I had struck lucky when I turned the photograph over and saw an inscription on the back. Then I read “This is us leaving the church after the wedding” – well I think I could have made quite a good stab at that myself. I just wanted to shout why didn’t you sign it “with love ….” or something.

I am guessing that the period is sometime in the 1920′s. Is the bride’s dress and head ware a bit “flapperish”? It looks like it to me.

So, whoever you are I hope you enjoyed your wedding day and had a happy life together. I might find out more about you in the future.
