Norman Courtney and Beatrice Saunders

on their Wedding Day  (date unknown but pos turn of the century – early 1900s)


Photograph in my private collection - copyright 2011

Norman and Beatrice are cousins on my Mother’s side of the family, apart from that at the moment I don’t know much about them.  I love their wedding photograph though!


  1. Hello Christine,

    What a handsome couple, and a great photo.

    I love Beatrice’s veil. I wonder if its tucked away in someone’s attic somewhere!

    • Hallo MarDi, I just love this photo, not sure why it appeals though!! And that is a thought, that Beatrice’s veil is tucked away in an attic somewhere – wouldn’t it be wonderful if it were. I’m going to have to start asking some questions of the relatives. 😉

      Thanks for visiting and commenting, much appreciated.

      Kind regards,

      Christine (rootsresearcher)

      • Hi Christine,

        It would be wonderful if it turned up, start questioning! 😀

        Its already wonderful just to have the photo, it really is very charming. I think the appeal is in how happy they appear. I look forward to reading about them if you find more information!

        I hope you’re having a lovely weekend!

        Best wishes,

  2. They look so young and innocent. Her bouquet, dress, and veil are just beautiful! I hope you find lots of information about them!

    • Hallo Nancy, Thanks for your comment and visiting my blog. Yes, they do look so young, but from the little I know I think Beatrice is older and this is pos her second marriage!! I am looking into finding out more about them and then hopefully will come across more photos of them. When I do it will definitely get posted on the blog. 😉

      Kind regards,

      Christine (rootsresearcher)

    • Hallo Jo, Yes it is a huge bouquet and very lovely. I like the way the bit of greenery trails down just to the hemline of Beatrice’s dress.

      Thanks for your comment and visiting my blog, it’s much appreciated. 😉

      Kind regards,

    • Hallo Annette, Thanks for visiting my blog and for your comment, it’s much appreciated. Yes, there seems to be something about this photo of Norman and Beatrice. The bouquet is wonderful too, they don’t seem to make them like that anymore. 😉 I’m really going to have to delve into these two more, they seem to have created a lot of interest.

      Kind regards,
