A 1950s East End wedding

  • DESTINATION:
    LONDON, UK
  • VENUE:
    A CHURCH IN THE EAST END
  • DATE:
    CHRISTMAS DAY, 1952
  • COUPLE
    NELL + STAN, RACHEL'S GRANDPARENTS

Ready for some vintage 1950s London wedding style? Rachel’s grandparents — Nell got married to Stan 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).
