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.
As much as the country goes crazy for a celebrity wedding, there is one type of nuptials that gets even more attention: a royal wedding. The British Royal Family are not only known around the world but are also pretty universally liked. The weddings of Queen Elizabeth II’s grandchildren have received great attention in Europe and America.
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. Certain weddings shaped the monarchy that we know today. Never has this been truer than with the post-war weddings of King George VI and Elizabeth II.
