Really nice photos from your collection, Larry. Thanks for posting them!

You're the fourth male serious collector of photos I know of who collects wedding pictures. I'm sure I'm showing some sort of bias here :) , but it's an area that I'd consider mostly attractive to women (though there aren't that many female collectors). So I've also been pleasantly surprised at the popularity of this thread.

I have to ask: Is the attraction, as a friend said (one of the wedding photos collectors), "It's the fantastic shots of the men's uniforms. Of course they're dressed at their best for their wedding photos, and they're also posed, so you get some fantastic views of uniforms and insignia!" ?

Best,
~Vikki

Hi Vikki

Thanks for the compliments. I collect wedding photos for several reasons:

There's the uniforms of course, the fact that most often the groom will wear all their medals won up to the date of the wedding and there's the human side to the photo as well.

The photos show that even during such a dark period in history people still fell in love and got wed.

I kind of feel sorry for the brides. Their wedding day is supposed to be one of the best days of their lives, yet they know their husbands will soon be back with their units and at the front once again. In a lot of cases they never came back.

Anyway, here's a nice RAD wedding photo.

Cheers
Larry

A couple more from my collection. The second one has the names of the bride and groom, and presumably the date of the wedding, listed on the back.
