Wedding Photo Date

Postby eurogordi » Thu Sep 16, 2010 5:52 pm

Hopefully someone can help me date this unknown wedding photo that has recently been found within my family. At first I thought it was probably 1920s, but some of the hats look older and some even look more recent. Like wedding today I suppose people wore what suited their age, but any suggestions will be very much appreciated.

I looked hard at your photo- it's rather difficult to see from such a small one - but it looks quite similar to my 1920's photo - definitely dated at 1926. What do you think?

Yes, I think there are similarities in clothing although few women are wearing hats. Also, the bride's veil is very similar to the late Queen Mother's veil when she married in 1923. The bride in my photo has a much plainer veil, and I'm wondering if it dates from 1921 - if so, I might be able to work out who is it. I've (hopefully) attached a larger version!

I'm also looking at the collars on the men - the same shape apart from one in my photo with very modern-looking pointed ones.

Hi eurogordi,

I think that your photo is dated slightly before Tilliduff's. I would not like to hazard a guess, but the clothes in Tilliduff's are definately 20's the clothes in your photos seem to be earlier, but not an awful lot!!!

This is probably no help - but I thought that I would venture an opinion anyway.
