Rozelle Brides Exhibition

While exploring the town of Balmain, I stumbled upon a hidden gem—a vintage photography exhibition at the local library. The exhibit contains stunning glass plate negatives of weddings taken during the Inter-war years: 1939 – 1945. The photos were taken in the Sidney Riley Photography Studio located in Rozelle, a lovely neighboring town. The wedding attire ranges from gorgeous gowns, to 40’s knee-length dresses, to military uniforms. There are lots of ideas in these images for those of you who are considering a vintage wedding. The flowers are just spectacular and I love the outfits on the flower girl and the ring bearer in the group photo (though, the kids do not look like they feel the same way)!  What a wonderful glimpse into a time gone by.
