In preparation for a 2011 bridal fashion exhibition at the V&A, the museum is collecting online submissions of wedding photographs taken between 1840 and the present day.  Go here to contribute your own piece of wedding history.

I lost track of time as I browsed the collection decade by decade.  My favorite wedding so far is the 1930 marriage of Dorothy Murphy and Simon G. Friesen in Merced County, CA.
