I've used the perfect photo that matches the theme in a previous post so instead I'm posting a photo of a wedding group. In it there are two ladies with lacy hats, hiding in the background. They are the mothers of the bride and groom.
|Wedding group at Balmattum, 1897 - Margaret McKernan and Daniel Phelan|
|The mothers, Jane Phelan and Christina McKernan|
|William Phelan and Margaret McKernan with her parents (Daniel and Christina)|
