Picture this: it’s your wedding day and the photographer is nowhere to be found (possibility 1. didn’t show up; possibility 2. present at the wedding , but heavily drunk and asleep under a table).
Well that was my mother’s reality on her wedding day 32 years ago. So she ended up with no pictures of that important moment in her life. Nowadays a similar situation would have resulted in tantrums and cancellation of the wedding, but back then people didn’t care that much for these things…
In an attempt to somehow visualize her on that day, I googled “bride”, “1980” and “USSR”. I found two happy brides that come very close to what she looked like when she got married.
Moral of the story? Be a happy bride…even if nobody takes pictures of you.
