This one is of my Nana and Grandad, Dorie and Fred Staples, on their wedding day during World War II. My Grandad was a fireman during the war, hence the uniform. As you can see my Nana didn't have the rations for an all singing wedding dress but looked stunning all the same.
She was 18 and he was 28 and they had lived on the same street since birth. My Nana always said that she knew as a small girl, when Freddie boy used to give all the kids a lift on the back of the cart, that she would marry him. They were happily married until we lost my Grandad in 1979, even after his death my Nana never had another chap in her life as she could never love anyone as much as her Fred.
Here's the sketch
and here is my layout
