    This photo reminds me of a societal marriage. This couple looks very happy whoe husband is in the military. It looks to me that they are coming out into society as couple and that everyone is soluting them. They genuinely look happy.

    Looks like one of the best weddings I've seen, and I should know, I work in Wedding Planning, I found flickr to be an infinite source of inspiration for me, thanks for sharing! Love the vintage atmosphere.

    Did these people ever think that 80 years later this photograph would be viewed by so many all over the world just by the click of a mouse.

    Can't be 100% sure from the SMH pic, but this looks like the Middleton-Harvey wedding of December 1936 - nla.gov.au/nla.news-article17300889 .

    Thanks again, quasymody. I have added a note to our Catalog record with your information. R.P. [Raymond Palmer ?] Middleton was with the ill-fated HMAS Sydney in 1936 but was with HMAS Cerberus in World War II, a training facility where he was awarded the OBE.
