 Eduard Biewend and his Bride, Feodore, 7 July 1842

1/4 plate Daguerreotype (10.9 x 8 cm) by F. Oehme

To me this is one of the most tender wedding photos of the Victorian era. There is something very ‘modern’ and real about them. Not two posing ‘puppets’, but two real human beings. You can see they are very much in love.
