Pauline Torvik wear the dress in the centre on her wedding day in 1934. It is a beautiful and very glamorous and stylised example of 1930’s wedding dresses

This dress isn’t such a real bride but is actually Ellie Andrews in the 1934 film ‘It happened one night’. The great thing about this example is that unlike most pictures either of real brides or illustrated ones, it hasn’t got a massive bouquet blocking my view of the arms and waist. These are elements that I have struggled to get references for to support my make.
