Sepia Saturday 140 - lillies

I do not seem to have any wedding related material to share for this week's Sepia Saturday and as I have the world's worst haircut in my own wedding photo, I won't be sharing that. However I did notice that the bride is holding some lillies, so I thought I would include in selection of lillies.

Easter Lily, Bermuda

Fountain and Lily Pond, Hampton Court Palace

Miss Lily Elise

As usual, 100's more vintage postcards on my web site

  5. Now see, I would never have even noticed the bride's flowers if you hadn't brought it up. You're so clever!

  6. Oh yes, some of the hair styles we knew were so lovely in their day! I do like what you posted and while here hair looks lovely, that hat ...well....I wonder if it was heavy?! Great photos!

  10. Photographic puns - unique. A nice welcome from the overload of bridal dress and fixed smiles.

  12. A neat detail to pick up. But you may have missed a hat trick here as I'm sure there must be postcards for the sopranos Lily Langtry and Lily Pons. I looked up Lily Elsie and was surprised that her fame came from appearing in Lehar's "The Merry Widow" in 1907. Her costumes and hats in this popular operetta were a big influence on fashion.
