Friends of Strode Theatre, Somerset residents and historians have contributed family wedding portraits to illustrate the significant and delightful changes to fashions, from the late 19th century right through to the present day.

As we all dress in our finest outfits for weddings, the family costumes as well as the bridal couple reflect the current fashion of each decade - decades that saw significant changes in style, wartime weddings that were subject to rationing and then same-sex marriage bringing a totally different look to the formal portrait.

These photographs are each a story of personal and social history, recorded in all their glory by professional photographers.
