It’s June, the month of weddings. Families who have vintage wedding photos are so fortunate. We love seeing them and hearing a bit about who is shown. We love seeing the fashions, the changing expressions. We all know that weddings sometimes took place in time of war, of economic hardship. But that all forms part of the story of who we are, now we bounce back, are resilient, how we keep on “keeping on” through good times and bad.
Here are just a few that have been shared with us recently by our readers. Thanks go to Donna, Jane, Sharron, Bernard and Meda for sharing these with us all.

from: Bernard Waby: “A dour war Wedding my Mum and Dad in 1942”
We’d like to thank Bernard for sharing some of his wonderful, and dramatic, family photos with us all. This was a war wedding. We see the uniform. We also see some smiles and much strength.
