a 1950s east end wedding
Rachel’s grandparents — Nell (above, with her dad) got married to Stan (below) in the East End of London on Christmas Day, 1952.
The bridal headdress style is AMAZING, as are the bridesmaid’s floral crowns. The bouquets are so enormous; the groom, my granddad, looks so amused, and his suit’s several sizes too big for him. My grandmother’s high-necked dress is gorgeous (also, I don’t think she ever put on weight in her life; she’s still that slim now.
