It's a wedding. Why nobody's similing and look happy? Wasn't usual to be photographed smiling, back then?

I don't think so Onar. When looking at old family  pictures (pre WW2) it always stroke me that people would look very severe. Maybe because they had to hold the pose for quite a while,  the exposure needed was high in those days. ...   It's easier to maintain a fixed expression of apathy rather than grinning  . As the technology improved, exposure times dropped and people became more relaxed.
I don't think that people had less fun but maybe there also was a different sense of decorum, in old oil portaits for example, you seldom see people smile.

Interesting perspective, melusina, I haven't thought about it. I try to remember my grandparent's wedding photo, I have the impression that my grandmother smiles.
It's just seem weird that nobody looks happy, although probably they are.

People rarely ever smile in old photos. I read an article about it once. It's almost funny when you start to notice. My guess is our forefathers would be equally mystified as to why we're always smiling in photos Wink

There's a bit to find around online about the topic..

And there are still many parts of the world where it is considered rude to smile for photos, especially weddings.  Interesting how each culture has its own traditions and there is no right or wrong way to do it.  It is just what is most meaningful to the participants.

My husband hates to smile in pictures--he would have fit right in with the Victorians!

I love looking at old photographs. Getting a glimpse into another time is fascinating to me. Just found a bunch of old family photos--photos of my grandma when she was little, great grandma as a young mother, etc. So much fun to look through.

Thanks Maria for the links!

I've got a question regarding MTs dress. MT an JC are wearing white dresses while Marie Astrid wears violett and Charlotte is in a black dress. I thought the privil?ge du blanc is for consorts of reigning catholic monarchs only. Is it considered a faux pas that the then hereditary GD MT is wearing white or is it of no importance because it wasn't a formal audience in the Vatican?

Not a faux-pas since it wasn't an audience at the Vatican. He visited them in Lux, so no need for MT and Astrid to wear black or for JC to wear pure white

Horrible photoshop: Henri's head looks like they did put it on another body, MT's face is off and she must be standing on a ladder, no wonder that she is clinging to his arm, she must be afraid to fall. I wonder who is responsible for this mess, they should have burned those pics. But great find, gives us sth to dish  Thumb up  Star

MT is totally barrel shaped now. She is as beautiful when she married in.
