A Military Wedding Day

You readers seem to like real weddings where the groom is in dress uniform!

Last week we had a Naval wedding - and today we have a bridegroom who's in the military who looked very dashing and handsome as he led his new bride back down the aisle. Photography is by Tony Fitzgerald.

The venue is at the bride's father's hotel in California and it's the prettiest day (with a spectacular wedding cake too).

We all loved the Royal Wedding with Prince William in his Irish Guards uniform and Prince Harry in his Blues and Royals dress uniform. There's certainly something about a man in uniform.

And there are some other fabulous traditions at military weddings, like cutting the wedding cake with a sword and having an arch of swords to walk underneath!
