Who doesn’t love a traditional Newfoundland and Labrador wedding? A good old time with waltzes, firing guns into the sky and five varieties of cold mashed potato salad... Wedding traditions have changed over the years, but the idea of celebrating your love surrounded by friends and family has not. This exhibition showcases beautiful wedding keepsakes from our collections–stunning wedding dresses, of course, along with cake toppers, invitations and photographs from 1823 to today.
