My parents get papped tying the knot

3 Nov
On August 2nd 1982 my parents wed at Baliffscourt in Sussex.

She wore a blue off-the shoulder dress that had been designed and hand-stitched for a certain princess but the lady in question deemed it too short and so deposited it in a vintage boutique. He wore a maroon tie and a pink shirt, two items he still owns today nearly 29 years later. Aren’t they gorgeous?

After the wedding breakfast guests jumped in the swimming pool fully clothed and my mother mingled, carrying a glass of milk and a cigarette.

    Just beautiful! So often the greatest beauty comes from simplicity… and from love. What a gorgeous couple. 🙂

    That is so sweet it nearly brought a tear to my eye. Could’ve been pictures from now though. True style.
