This is a picture of my grandparents' wedding in 1949. Although they have been divorced for nearly 40 years, they both died in 2011, only a half year apart.

Thank you for sharing this story and great photo with us! At the risk of sounding irreverent, I'm pretty sure I know what your grandfather was thinking when this photo was taken.

My Mums schoolfriend married her French Canadian in a very Make do and mend WWII ceremony you can tell its a wedding because someone gave Doris a silver paper horseshoe for luck,they emmigrated to Montreal and had a very happy family.

What a great photo! I was unfamiliar with this tradition, but as submitter Diddleymaz pointed out, it was a Canadian custom for wartime brides to carry silver horseshoes made of paper. You can read more about Canadian War Brides at the Canadian Veteran's Affairs website.

My grandpa was a photographer. Instead of throwing rice, the guests used the flashes from their cameras.

This is my grandmother and grandfathers wedding photo from the 1920's, I swear they didn't always look this grumpy!

Oh man, I was so scared of their grumpiness I almost didn't post this. Just kidding! They look perfectly sunny to me, but maybe that's because I come from a city where it rains 300 days a year. This is as peppy as we get around here.
