The Leaving of Scholes - when my dad finally gave me away... No more telling me what time to come home! The old girl's school in the background.. Many memories set in the stones of that building...

Veronica, a beautiful photograph, your Dad looks very proud. I have two daughters and on their wedding day I think it's probably the poignant time, everyone else has left to go to church just you and your daughter; not a lot of words spoken but a1000 things are saId ! From that day forward you realise that the relationship with your daughter will be completely different, just as close of course, but different. There's a beautiful irish song on YouTube 'On Your Wedding 'Day, I hope you listen to it.

A nice girlie face decked in soft, heavy, Wedding Day fabric, while Dad holds a hand. I must say, Veronica, the position of your Dad's feet and his relaxed bonny chest don't half remind me of 'Bjorling on the concert platform'.

Thanks Tom, Edna and Philip, I do think there was a bit of the Viking about my dad, but he couldn't sing a note. I think most of Lancashire are descended from the Norse people though.. It was 'red hot ' that day.

A lovely photo ! Much prefer the wedding dress style here than the strapless kind that seem to be favoured now.

I know what you mean Elizabeth, some dresses today are more like ball gowns- ready for the evening 'do'. We did things differently then didn't we just. The top of the dress is guipure lace all bought from Harts and made by a seamstress around the corner from where I lived , it was beautiful.
