Wordless Wednesday: One Date, One Church, Two Weddings

After last Friday's small, intimate affair up in London (a beautiful princess, at least two pantomime dames and a Queen clothed in marzipan) I thought I would toot my own family trumpet. 

My grandparents, and later their daughter Betty, got married at St Mary Redcliffe Church, Bristol (the "fairest and goodliest parish church in all England" - see here). Philip and Ethel tied the knot in 1924; Betty and Percy followed them down the same aisle in 1952.  Here a couple of photos of my grandparents on both occasions.

And here they are 28 years later - Philip has cheered up and Ethel has plumped up!
