The Wedding Collection Opening Sunday!

Exhibition Dates: September 18 - 20, 2011
Opening Reception: Sunday, September 18th, 3 - 6pm
Hours: Sunday, 12-6pm; Monday, 10am-6pm; Tuesday, 10am - 6pm

YOU’RE INVITED!

In celebration of The Wedding Co.’s 10th anniversary Catherine Lash and Stephen Bulger will be displaying a selection of wedding photographs from their collection. The photographs, which were made over an approximate 140 year period, have been collected throughout the past 15 years.

Initially interested in building a collection of authentic wedding photographs in a variety of early photographic processes, the collection has grown to approximately 250 individual items. Each is exemplary of different approaches to photographing and methods of printing. They also provide an illustrated history of fashion and offer insight into various wedding traditions and rituals. The collection is predominantly North American and European in content, but more recently has been expanding into a more global search for new photographs to acquire.

Stephen and Catherine are grateful to all of the sources for the photographs they have had the pleasure to acquire either by purchase or through gifts. They are especially grateful to Robyn Zolnai for her enthusiastic diligence in cataloguing the collection to this point.

Please join us at the opening reception on Sunday, September 18th, 3 - 6pm, featuring The Tintype Studio. Have your portrait taken and experience a chapter in the history of photography.
