Wedding Season

August is often a month of weddings; in recognition here are a couple of pictures of wedding services in years gone by. The images above and immediately below clearly show the same ceremony, and also reveal something of the unsatisfactory nature of the temporary liturgical arrangements that were put in place after Vatican II. A temporary altar and lectern can be seen in the sanctuary, though it appears that the pulpit was still in use.

Here the vows are being made.

This final image is clearly a good deal older, though the exact date is not known.
