History with its flickering lamp stumbles along the trail of the past, trying to reconstruct its scenes, to revive its echoes, and kindle with pale gleams the passion of former days. ~Winston Churchill

This post has nothing to do with the Royal Wedding-- I thought about waiting to post it till then, but I'm thoroughly tired of hearing about all that! But, who doesn't love a wedding? Sweet, beautiful, and touching photographs. These come from three collections, two Australian and one Welsh, proving that archivers too like to share wedding photos!
