Ive always been fascinated by old wedding photo's so i would be very interested to see everyone elses. This is my Grandma and Grandads wedding in June 1955 at Ashwell Street Methodist church, Netherfield. They hired a double decker bus from Nottingham corpo to take all the guests to the wedding reception which was held in the Ballroom at the Elite on Parliament Street

L - R are: Great grandfather Ernest Peck, Marjory Hammond nee Peck ( grandads cousin), Leonard Turville (granddads step brother), Great grand-step mother Mable Peck nee Small, Magda Peck ( Grandads neice), My grandad Walter Peck, My grandma, Joan Peck Nee Bennett, Great Grandmother Ethel Bennett, Sheila Peck ( grandads youngest sister) and my Great Grandfather William " Billy" Bennett.

As ive said in previous postings, I still have that wedding dress: It was made out of 11 yards of embossed Damask and cost my grandma ( more than likely her dad paid for it!) £32 11s 6p PER yard and was made for her by her neighbor on Harrogate Street. Plus i have the horseshoes, the veil and the wooden spoon shes holding with the flowers.

Looking at old photos like that, its difficult believe that the youngest person on the photo is probably older than me now!

Great photo Malcolm! I have a few old family pictures I should probably share as I'm not 100% aware where half were taken, here's a photo from my Great Auntie Joan's wedding to a Mr Farquhar(pictured in the background) The lady to the left of the bride is my Great Grandmother, Rosetta Bradshaw. Apologises for poor quality,it's a photo of a photo...

Here's a photo of my Mum and Dad who were married in 1933. I believe the photo was taken at Saundby Park, near Gainsborough. I still have her wedding veil although the net is quite fragile now.

Margie H, No didn't elope, but second marriage and we wanted it to be special and different, a friend who lives in Edinburgh arranged it for us and we spent the Christmas there (wedding day 23rd December) just our two and three witnesses, just right, we are so happy and love each other so much, 16 years this Christmas

Thanks, Melissa but I think it was perhaps because I was young - 23 - and in love! (Still am in love, but the outward appearance has changed somewhat!) When I look in the mirror these days, I just see my mother, but I don't feel much different than I did nearly 50 years ago....
