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 <

My great-grandparents, John and Claire, were married in the early 1940s and stayed together until his death three years ago. Since then, my mom and her cousin both wore Nana's dress in their own weddings and it's as beautiful today as it was then.

My grandmother and I were married on the same date. Since she passed away and could not attend, we had her picture at the altar.

My Pepere and Memere on their wedding in 1953. I love how smitten my Grandfather looks.

Haha, I love the incredulous look on your grandmother's face! They look like a fun pair!

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.
