A match made in heaven but alas my Mother passed away not 15 years after this photo was taken. My Dad is alive and was chirpy on the phone today, he’s in his 90th year he reminds us. Dulcie Marion Hansen made the cake for her own wedding as it was her hobby at the time, on scanning the meal it was a tossed crab & prawn salad with very fancy iced treats and Tristrams drinks on the table. A hand coloured print from Regent Studios, Brisbane c1947. Everyone looks their best although I know from family speak that it bucketed down with rain the entire day. The bride & bridesmaids photo is here, from the left is Dulcie’s sister Noela Hansen, my mum’s two best friends Jess Simmonds on her right and Dorathy Littler on the left.
