Bush Wedding 1896

This photo from the Manning Valley Historical Society shows the 1896 marriage of Hugh White and Janet Minns.

First look at the surrounds. This is bush, not a park.

Now look at the clothes. Very formal. Imagine what it would have been like to wear this gear.

Think about getting ready. Then travelling by horse or sulky or buggy to get there.
