I'm awfully sorry, and Miss Paget seems a pretty girl, but the low on the brow head coverings that brides and others wore in the 1920's, especially with lappets hanging either side, were just foul, IMHO. The Queen Mother's was much the same. They hid the hair and if women were at all plain that look didn't help any!

On the other hand the little bridal attendant looks extremely cute!

(This couple were divorced in 1935, and Lord G married again very soon afterwards!)

Extraordinary scenes really! In a pre TV, pre Internet age, on a very rainy day, hundreds of men and women struggle to catch a glimpse of an upper middleclass bride who's marrying a minor Scottish aristocrat, albeit a brother of the Duchess of York. In fact they are so determined to see her that the police are having trouble controlling them! Yet those sort of scenes happened again and again when smart Society weddings occurred.

I'm amazed that the cars made it through the crowd. I'm even more amazed that no one got run over!

All this for the son of an earl who had five older brothers and a snowball's chance of inheriting? And yet strangely enough, Michael's brothers and nephews either died unmarried or only produced daughters. As a result, Michael and Elizabeth's son became the 17th Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne.

People were just as geared up for a big wedding in 1928 as they are today. I would never have thought that many people would have congregated for the wedding of someone that wasn't directly in the royal family itself.

Even the rain didn't deter them and the police sure had their hands full.

The bride was a close friend of the Duchess of York and had been one of her bridesmaids. I don't know whether the Yorks were present (they probably were) but maybe the crowds were expectant of seeing them, as they were very popular royals.

Having said that, I think being in the crowd watching Society people arrive and depart for a family wedding was a form of mass entertainment in those days. I remember reading a biography of Joyce Grenfell, who was a popular British entertainer of the 1950's. She was upper middleclass and well connected, related to the Viscount Astor and his wife Margot, of Cliveden notoriety. When Joyce married in the 1920's to another upper middleclass person, the crowds turned out to gawk at that one as well, though not in such numbers as above!

Why do all these weddings seem to take place in such terrible weather? People in the crowds waiting patiently were rugged up in thick tweed coats. When did this wedding take place? June?

Anyway, this one ended in tears, with a divorce in 1950. What a tragic family the Douglases are, at least the Queensbury branch. Lots of mental illness for generation after generation.

At least it's not raining for this wedding and this one didnt end in divorce! Prince Ernst (the son of Archduke Franz Ferdinand) looks a fair bit older than his bride, though he wasn't. It actually must have been quite difficult for Marie-Therese during the war, with her father being a British diplomat. Even worse for Ernst though, who was anti-Nazi and in concentration camps until 1943 and never really recovered, dying quite young.
