Wedding Pictures and Bridal Fashions, 1830-1960
Jayne Shrimpton's presentation begins in 1830, the decade that saw the introduction of civil registration in England and Wales. Over the intervening decades millions of our ancestors have wed, but what they chose to wear, on this most important of days, has changed dramatically from decade to decade.

In her presentation Jayne will be looking at a timeline of wedding pictures - both family photos and fashion plates - to help us explore the wedding fashions of the day. The dress, head wear, floral arrangements, hairstyles, and footwear (where visible), from the eminently sensible use of a 'best dress', to the full-flown bridal fantasies that increasingly became the order of the day, taking in the practical restrictions brought about by clothes rationing in and after WW2 along the way.

Join us for costume historian Jayne Shrimpton's live online presentation to find out more.

Time& date: 3pm on Wed 23 June

Tickets: £10

The presentation will last an hour with time for questions with Jayne Shrimpton afterwards.
