Everyone loves having photos of their special day to look back on for years to come. Booking a professional photographer for your wedding day may come without a second thought. However, this never used to be the case. Today, we’re looking back at the history of photographic technology, and wedding photography.
There are so many traditions that many of us adhere to when marrying. The royal family has a lot of expectations on their weddings, too. But, did you know that a lot of these started with the wedding of Queen Victoria to Prince Albert?
The 1920s were a brief respite from the horrors of World War One before the austerity of the Great Depression. It was a time of great advancement from civil rights to a social revolution. Likewise, it was a great era for watching the changing fashions of wedding dresses.
Royal weddings continue to captivate the nation, and this is amplified when the royal in question will rule the country. Especially in times of hardship, it is these figures we look to.
