My Beloved Grandmother on Her Wedding Day
I present to you my beloved grandmother on her wedding day, circa 1973, looking as lovely as ever.
I fell in absolute love when I first set my eyes on this photo; the orange haze enveloping the image (the same as the color of her wedding dress) emitting an aura of a time so dreamy and blissful; the softness of her femininity (traces of which I still find in her), the hidden shyness in that lovely smile. It was an arranged marriage with my grandad but she was still so happy, and I am glad that she was, for love happened soon after and so did a marriage that lasted for 43 beautiful years, until the 18th of this March, when my beloved grandad passed away.
She may not be the same now, mentally or even physically, but the loveliness you see here, it is still there.
