Wedding Wednesday: After the wedding of the daughter of Mr. Humphreys

Filed under: DAILY BLOGGING THEMES, Wedding Wednesday — Tags: , , , — rootsresearcher @ 11:50 pm

I acquired this photo a few years ago – given to me by someone I corresponded with, as it concerned my ancestors.

As far as I know this is to do with the wedding of Mary Elizabeth Humphreys (1869 – 1937).  She was the 3x great granddaughter of my 6 x great grandfather Cozens Read.  Mary married in 1901 to Edward James Readman.

This copy photograph in my private collection - copyright 2011


Mary and her parents and siblings lived at Brogborough Park Farm, Ridgmont, Bedfordshire and this photo was taken, I believe, at Brogborough.

Although I don’t have much information about the wedding I thought this photo was a little different from most wedding photographs.



  1. I was interested in the photo of the wedding, you mention the wedding at Brogborough, could be wrong but it looks very much like Ridgmont with the wedding taking place at Ridgmont All-Saints Church. I also noticed this picture is in your collection, I’d be interested to know if you’ve any more photos of Ridgmont in your collection. Many thanks

    • Hallo Jake, Thanks for visiting my blog and for commenting about this photo. My apologies for the long delay in replying!! I was given that photo several years ago and was told that it was regarding the marriage of my ancestor Mary Elizabeth Humphreys who lived at Brogborough Park Farm, Ridgmont. I was also told that the photo was more than likely taken at Brogborough!

      Thank you for the correction – it’s good to have information right!! The person I received my info from has sadly since died so I can’t pass this correction onto them.

      It is the only photo I have for this family and the only photo I have that shows Ridgmont or Brogborough, so I can’t help you with other photos of the place.

      Thanks again for your visit.

      Kind regards,

      Christine (rootsresearcher)
