Some truth in that though, isn't there? Wink

I believe that may be the average length of a marriage these days! Grin

Mine have been gathering dust on a bookshelf for nearly twenty years, so I reckon she's about right.

I've also had a video, shot by my aunt which I threw away, having never seen it.

Mine is buried at the bottom of the bookcase and I've been divorced for about three years - I must root it out, keep the pics which have my family/friends in it and dump the rest Smile

Maybe so but about 12 months ago I had a request from a bride whose wedding I covered over 30 years ago, for permission to have one of her wedding pics scanned in. It seemed she had gone somewhere who told her the picture had been taken by a pro and so his permission was needed in writing before they could carry out the scan. rather than do a search through my archives I gave the permission. So under the stairs or not - sometimes they do come out!!!!!

Our wedding was 38 years ago and we had the choice of having colour photos at extra cost (the standard at the time was b&w). We went for the colour option. They do come out occasionally but I think that the real benefit of such photographs is to show your grandchildren, they are part of your family archive, something to look back on in the future, or in our case now!

The hair styles, the fashions, the family members and friends no longer with us, that is what it is all about and that is why it is well worth having a decent set of photographs to remember the day by.

Keith,
Why does my mind see a connection between your wedding and a SOCO?Tongue

This, though, sums up what it is all about:

No connection, that was a long time before my SOCO days. The Co-Op Photography Department (yes they had one in those days) did the pictures.

Crikey you are making me feel old! Smile

I still have my parents wedding album from 60-something years ago. It's a good record of the relatives that I knew and loved because very few of the people are still with us.

There is a certain sadness in looking at some photo albums.... when, for example, you look at a group shot where you knew every single one of the people in the picture. But not one of them is still alive. Sad

CB I have found that a comfort as when you look you remember them. I know that at my fathers funeral meeting one of his friends with a photo book covering many ages of his life helped to remember the days before he was ill.

Contrary to public belief, my parents' wedding was actually a couple of years before I was born!

Any very old wedding album shows the relatives as "youngsters" and that's a good way to remember them. Death is as inevitable as birth but it's the bit in between that matters. If we're lucky, we get to bury our parents. The unlucky one bury their children!
