Today would have been the 80th Wedding Anniversary of my parents. Stanley Oliver and Ella Kate. The others in the wedding party are the younger brother and sister of the groom, Les and Elva, and the flower girl is Joy, a niece of the bride. I love the long train mum has which I think is coming from her veil, not the dress. Wish I knew the colour of the bridesmaids dress but if I ever knew I can't remember.
The wedding was held at the local Methodist church with the reception at the bride's parents house. There was no honeymoon, they moved straight into a nearby rented cottage.
Remembered with Love.
UPDATE: A family member had a newspaper report of the wedding.
The bridesmaids gown was apricot georgette with cape to match. She carried a bouquet of blue lupins and sweetpeas with tulle and streamers to match.

To sum me up, think minimalist, I am the opposite.
