Winifred also had to borrow her veil from her sister, which had been used twice before her. The wedding day was very windy and, so the photographer could take some photographs out side the church, Winifred had to sit on her veil to stop it blowing about. She was married in St Teresa’s church and had the reception at Seacroft Hall. She carried a huge bouquet of red roses.
Winifred’s mother had the huge job of organising the catering for 100 guests. Everything was homemade, including the bread. Her uncle was a farmer and so provided the butter and her new husband was a butcher, so borrowed a bacon slicer to carve up the ham for their meal. For dessert, the wedding party had a great big trifle.
