Week 12 – Joined Together

The prompt at 52 Ancestors this week is Joined together. I thought of a couple of ways I could approach this, but in the end I decided I would share a few photos and newspaper clippings from various family weddings.

Photo of mum’s sister Doreen Jamieson (Dodo) and James Moran on their wedding day. I also found an article about their wedding in The Kingston Whig Standard.

Below are two photos from the wedding of my mum’s sister Shirley Jamieson and Douglas White. I couldn’t find anything about their wedding in the paper but I did find a clipping in the Kingston Whig Standard from The Bride of The Week competition.

Another wedding photo, this time of mum’s brother William Jamieson and Mary McKenna. I couldn’t find any articles about their wedding but I did find their engagement announcement in the Kingston Whig Standard.
