Wedding flowers, April 1931

Posted on by royvickery |

Photograph taken 15 April 1931, the identity of the bride and groom is unknown, but they were photographed at the Parisian Studio, 161 High Street, Gillingham (presumably Kent, not Dorset).

The bride’s bouquet consists of altar (probably in those days more usually known as arum) lilies, Zantedeschia aethiopica, backed by asparagus fern, Asparagus setaceus.  She is also carrying what appears to be a spray of artificial orange, Citrus sinensis, blossom. The groom wears a simple white carnation, Dianthus caryophyllus, again backed by asparagus fern, in his lapel.
