This week’s Wedding Wednesday blog post, visits Ely in 1925, when my Great Grandparents were married.
After a nine year courtship, that reached back from November 1925, and into the First World War, Ernest Edward Thomas Dewey and Susan Jane Moden were wed at St Mary’s Church.
I’ve only stumbled across two photographs from this wedding, and neither of these show the bride or groom.
Here’s the first photograph – in very poor condition – showing their bridesmaids and the best man.
Their bridesmaids were Ernest’s cousin Gladys Anderson, and Susan’s younger sister Grace Violet Moden. Here is the other photograph, which has clearly been better looked after.
The best man is currently nameless, but a newspaper check should hopefully reveal his identity.
Ernest had many brothers, and Susan had just one. This man could easily be any one of those siblings (as was seemingly often done in this part of the family), or someone entirely different.
