The Trousseau

The outfit of a bride, to wear on the eve of her wedding, for her loved one.

In fact, in the early 1900’s many women would spend many hours hand embroidering a special outfit to wear on the night of their wedding. Many people believe that there are many trousseau’s today, because so many men did not return from WW1 and there fore the dresses were kept unused.

I took this photo last year at Vaucluse House. It is part of a series of images that form “An Australian Love Story 1900-1920′. It was quite a complex series and i really needed more time to pull it off, how ever,the series was submitted for my Diploma of digital imaging studies. The room is shot in three parts and merged in photoshop.

Swimming in the garden yesterday with the children. So nice to play with colour, something I enjoy at the moment, in these lovely summer months. Happy New Years Eve everyone and may your New Year be safe and prosperous. My heart goes out to the families and friends of the recent air disasters. It hits so much harder when your friends family members are among the unaccounted for. May you have all have the strength to stay strong. Thinking of you today Reni.
