Smile for the Camera, 14th Edition Wedding Belles


Sadly I never got to meet my husband's grandparents who are pictured here. Eliza Anne Gowans, aged 17, and Ernest James Gillespie, aged 23, were married at 188 Albany Road Petersham on 29 October 1913 according to the rites of the Presbyterian Church with G. Acheson Gordon the officiating Minister.

Eliza and Ernest's partnership ended in divorce around 1935. Eliza had two more marriages before her death in 1962, whilst Ernest had one more marriage before his death in 1958.

They were a very elegant couple, Geni. So many little details about their dress to point out. Don't you love the headpiece and her bouquet? And his gloves and shoes - he must have been a sharp dresser at all times. Thanks for sharing this with us.
