As Promised

Last week I told you about Mum’s wax orange blossom bridal headpiece and the succession of brides who have worn it.

So here’s the proof that I also wore it for my wedding to Marc in the early 70s.

cheesy 70s moustache

equally cheesy blue velvet suit and huge bow tie

Laura Ashley style wedding dress [ referred to by my darling daughter as ‘the nightie’ ]

and my formerly elbow length wavy auburn hair after being attacked, chopped and straightened by the hairdresser from hell.

    I’ve learned in my old age to let my hair do what it wants. We’re both happier that way.

    I wore fresh daisies in my hair (early 80’s and still a flower child). We have a christening dress that all the children in the family wore and then my children wore. I think it’s outlived it’s usefulness since my children aren’t at all religious and probably won’t have christenings.

    Gorgeous photo Susan. I had a similar hairstyle which was permed a couple of years later by a hairdresser who obviously didn’t care! WM wore a white suit (so late 70s) and his going away outfit was a safari suit! Ah fashion – thank goodness it changes!

    Love the photo, and now I can see all your offspring resemble their dad!! Have also had a chuckle at the other comments.
