A Lancashire Wedding. Submitted by Jill on the A272

Submitted by Macbev
From the newspaper report of the wedding: "The bride looked charming as she entered the church on her father's arm. Her tasteful gown was of white crepe satin, with a skirt composed of silver lace, and a flared satin train, underlined in shell pink crepe de chine, falling from the waist. A beautiful veil of Honiton lace, which fell to form a long train, was held in place by a pretty headdress of orange blossom. The bride carried a sheaf of roses, carnations and erica, completing a delightful toilet.

The bridesmaids, Misses *** and **** ******, looked smart in frocks of eau de nil georgette, with a draped bodice to give a panel effect, and overlapping flounces embroidered in gold, falling to the heels of gold shoes. Argyle hats of gold shaded crinoline and fancy straw, trimmed with black velvet flowers on the side, were worn. The flower girl, Miss **** *****, was daintily frocked in frilled net and crepe de chine to match the colour scheme of the bridesmaids. A cap of pearls was worn and a basket of tinted roses and ferns carried.
After the ceremony, ...... Mrs ***** received the guests in a model frock of beige georgette and a black lace hat. The hostess was assisted by her sister, Mrs *****, who wore a chic frock of black georgette and lace, with a lemon hat to tone. Mrs ***and Mrs **** each carried a posy of roses.

My Grandparents Wedding 1932. Submitted by Yummy-Mummy-Of-2
My Grandparents in 1932. William Liddle Lackey and Hilda Wood (center). It is believed to have been 3 weddings at the same time, but I'm not sure as the other 2 girls are both wearing the same outfits, hats and shoes. The wedding took place at The Parish Church of St John's, Peterborough.
