Although photography had started in 1838, it was not widely used in 1840 when Queen Victoria married Prince Albert.So fourteen years later in 1854, they dressed in their wedding clothes again and finally got their wedding picture taken.Dresses could be re-made and veils were often inherited.Study all the clothing worn in the picture to make sure that all the facts add up.
