52 Ancestors #23 - Patricia Dorothea McCann - a favourite wedding photo

This post is for Week 23 of the 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks Challenge - 2015 - by Amy Johnson Crow from No Story Too SmallPrompt for Week  -  wedding.

June weddings, so popular in the northern hemisphere as the weather could be expected to be better. Perhaps not so popular in Australia as winter commences however the beautiful weather we are currently enjoying in Brisbane would be ideal though I don't know about strapless bridal gowns!
Patricia Dorothea & Joan Douglas McCann 1946

I have a favourite wedding photo on my mother and her sister Joan on Mum's wedding day the 14th October 1946. They are seated in front of a mirror at Denmora my great-grandparent's home at Bowen Hills. To me, the picture shows two happy sisters enjoying the day. All the preparation over and the excitement of the day to come. This photograph was taken after the wedding ceremony and before the reception which was also held at Denmora.

I remember looking into that very mirror many times as it was just outside Granny McCann's bedroom. A favourite photo of two wonderful women both now reunited in heaven.
