This is Nana and Grandpa's wedding picture taken way back in September 1923. The matriachal lady seated in the dark outfit is my Great-Grandmother Berridge. The 2 flower girls must be friends or cousins of the bride and the rest of the group are my Nana's sisters and their husbands.
I have memories of 4 out of the 5 sisters, Ethel, Sybil, Peggy and (Nana Edith known as Dolly) but of course in my mind they were all elderly ladies who smelt of lavender water and insisted on smothering us with kisses as children. How I would love to go back in time and ask them now what they remember about this beautiful picture ..........
