The marriage of Queen Victoria

When I posted the article about the purple wedding dress, Darryl Moland noted that the tradition of the white wedding dress began with Victoria.  Today I ran across this 1840 painting by George Hayter of Victoria's wedding at Dark Silence in Suburbia, via Fuck Yeah, Victorians!


  1. Minnesotastan...USA
    of course
    a victorian fan?
    pound coins because part of your
    followers is british?
    ergo a regional motivacional post?

  2. I'm not sure what your point is (?). This blog has had readers from 220 countries - I don't try to cater to any particular group. The pound coin post was meant to emphasize the worldwide debasement of currency.
