Victorian Wedding Illustration: A Bridal Party (from January 1867)

"What greater thing is there for two human souls, than to feel that they are joined for life –
to strength each other in all labor, to rest on each other in all sorrow, to minister to each other in silent unspeakable memories at the moment of the last parting?"
George Eliot

A Victorian wedding illustration from January 1867. The image shows a bride and her three attendants as they wait for her to walk through the church doors and down the aisle. The bride has donned a luxurious cape with ice-blue trimming and lined with richly embroidered lace over her simply cut gown while her mother looks very much the grand matron in elaborately ruffled flounces and bright scarlet.
