Photograph of a bride and groom standing beside a Rolls Royce

Wedding photographs may be filled with treasured memories, but they can also be useful for demonstrating wedding traditions and expenses in the past. While the former photograph shows a moderate feast being enjoyed by all at Trethurgey, one can guess by the mode of transport here that the feast lined up for the guests at this wedding of Ms J Cory from St Mewan and Mr S Macdonald of St Ewe in 1930 may have been pitched more at the higher end of the budget!
