My parents, 1956, in front of St. Benedict's church in Ealing, London, UK.
The dress was custom-made by a local dressmaker, the mother of my mother’s friend.
My mother says she wasn’t even given the opportunity to assist in the design! She just remembers asking for a square neckline and being told to bring 8 yards of fabric. The dress was sleeveless and she had a long-sleeved lace bolero jacket to go over it. The veil was borrowed from her matron-of-honor. Mom says she accidently trod on it and tore a hole... she was so worried about what her friend would say but the friend never mentioned it!
I remember the gown being part of our dress-up play-clothes trunk as kids... after the white rayon satin had discolored to a golden yellow over several years in storage.

Maggie, there are lots and lots of wedding photos with dates and places in Flickr commons (no known copyright). Would you like me to add them to the resource?
I have harvested the most recent submissions, and ready for more!
@denisebrain thank you for the offer, but IMO you are already spread too thin. I actually have some public domain photos in reserve from the 1940s, as I felt that decade was at risk of getting overwhelming. At some point this autumn or winter, I'll dig into Flickr - or perhaps I'll have a partner/volunteer by then to further develop this. Eventually, some of the decade threads may get broken down into 5 year intervals, just to help them load better.
What a wonderful retro photo!
