V&A Wedding Photos Site Needs You

The Victoria and Albert Museum in London dropped me a line to tell WT readers about their new project they could use some help on. Included in this post are some great images they sent.

The V&A has just opened a website on wedding fashion where people can upload wedding photographs from any time from 1840 to the present.

This is what the Gail from the V&A said,
“We hope to create a very large database of wedding fashions organized by date. People can upload up to three photographs from any wedding and the emphasis should be on the fashion although we already have some lovely pictures of flowers and cakes. The only stipulation is that the couple should be named and the date of the wedding should be included. This will allow us to create a historical record. There are some optional fields such as location, religion of ceremony and maker and designer.

We are at a very early stage in this project so need some help to get the site populated both with contemporary weddings and those from the past”.

When I get a chance I’m going to send along some photos from my wedding which was heavily vintage inspired. Seems like a fun and useful project.

    Why not post yours and mine here, along with that of someone else we know, who happens to be getting married sometime soon?
