Roy & Sally Lyle (nee Winch)
Married 50 years ago today!
7th of February 1959 at St Anne's shrine, Bondi beach.
The young priest who married them , Father Ken Sargent was performing his first wedding.
Brandt I were also fortunate to have the lovely Ken marry us almost 14 years ago.
Mum had tuberoses in her bouquet and Yes, she made her beautiful dress herself as well as the bridesmaid's dresses and a complete wardrobe for their honeymoon to Hawaii, San Francisco & Los Angeles.
It is easy to see how they fell in love, He very handsome, She stunningly beautiful.
"The wedding photos were taken on the same day. The custom was that after the wedding ceremony, the bridal group went to a studio to get the official photos as most people never had the super dooper cameras of today & the guests went to the wedding reception (held at 'Alexis' in Kingsford) for nibblies & some drinks.Then 45 minutes later,we arrived & made the Grand Entrance We then had the wedding feast & much champagne.. How's that for 2 good memories. Such a lovely day is emblazoned into our memories!!"
I wish them a Fantastic celebration party, 50 years is a wonderful achievement and needs a big celebration.
