House Crazy Sarah loves old wedding photos of any age because they give us a glimpse of the silly fashion fads of the day.
But she especially loves Victorian era wedding photos because they often give us a peek at elaborately staged Victorian parlors.
Plus the people are just so darn morose!
Wasn’t anyone happy to get married back then?
They are either bored out of their minds or simply terrified. It’s hard to tell.
Not all these photos are technically Victorian – some are as recent as the 1920’s.
Nonetheless, it is fascinating for us house crazies to see the rooms where they posed for what was often the only formal portrait of their lifetimes.
You may notice that there were often ornate background screens used for the photos.
But House Crazy Sarah’s most favorite vintage wedding photos are the ones where the people posed outside – in front of houses!
In a few rare cases, we get to see the whole house!
House Crazy Sarah loves when the house is part of the wedding. 🙂
