My mother and my father; wedding 1933
My mother was 23 and my father 30 years old. My mother wore a black dress and a white embroidered veil. I remember the veil and also the headband with the flowers.
They were tucked away in box tied with a pretty ribbon. I also remember, the art deco brooch she was wearing with quite a long pearl necklace.
My mother's sister Helen and Thomas married in 1936
This is a true sepia photo. Helen does not wear a veil. She is wearing a silk dress, but also not white. the dress is embellished with lace at the front.
Anna and Simon were married 1939;
Simon was my mother's younger brother.
Simon was conscripted into the German army and died in Russia in 1944. He was a driver in the war.
Anna wears a white wedding dress and also a veil. All the brides carry white roses.
Anna never married again and had no children.
