vintage wedding: london, 1952

1950s wedding: London, Christmas 1952LONDON, CHRISTMAS DAY 1952

I love 1950s weddings. My grandparents, Nell and Stan, got married on Christmas day, 1952, in the East End of London. These are the only pictures I’ve ever seen of my nan’s dad; I really like the father-and-daughter shot in the cardboard frame.

The outfits were gorgeous, and everyone looks sort of cheeky. My grandad’s suit jacket looks too big for him. I love my nan’s spectacular bridal headdress.

(Sorry about the bad scans. If I find the prints, I’ll rescan them.)
