In the first of my Wedding Wednesday blog series, I’ve decided to travel back to 1953, when my maternal grandparents walked the aisle during April.
In the tiny village of Wentworth, my grandparents married. My grandfather being 21 and my grandmother being 20.
Here’s the final moments of my grandmother as a single woman, on the arm of her father. She was his only child.

And here are the bridesmaids in line.
Some of the wedding party, which includes my Grandparents, Great Uncle, Great Grandparents, and Great Great Grandmothers.
The proud parents – my Great Grandparents – (L-R) Ernest Herbert and Maude Barber, with Susan Jane and Ernest Edward Thomas Dewey.
