My Mum dug through the many cardboard boxes in the attic to find her wedding photo album. We’re looking for a potential picture for the family tree project. Neither my Mum nor I had looked at this album in a long time and it was great to go through the photographs together and share her memories. The photos are lovely and very, VERY Seventies!
This is the church where they got married with my mum and dad’s heads floating above the altar (I will not be asking our photographer to use a similar effect!).
My mum was a beautiful bride.
Mum says she still has the cake topper somewhere.
My Dad loks pretty grumpy in a lot of the photos. Mum says that was because he had had his stag night the evening before the wedding and was feeling a little ill the next day. For ‘ill’ read hungover!
I had to include this. I think its a fantastic photo maybe the epitome of a 1970s wedding: The huge glasses, the hair, Dad’s face imposed on my mother’s silhouette.
Love you Mum and Dad! Here’s to 30 years of marriage and 30 years more!
