Vintage Wedding: Patrick and Dolores, 1955

Wedding of Patrick Guinness to Baroness Dolores von Furstenberg, 1955


If this photo wasn’t so yellowed I could never tell it’s from an actual wedding and not from an editorial photoshoot taken today! His double breasted suit and her belted dress are very typical for the 1950s, but there’s something with their look that makes this photo look timeless. Loving her hairdo.
