The new Hitched publication

To mark the publication of Hitched: Wedding Clothes in National Museums Liverpool, we’re giving away a couple of free copies. The book features 13 wedding garments from our collections, ranging from cute 19 century pageboy’s outfits to a 1970s knitted wedding dress, alongside the more familiar white floaty creations.

To be in with a chance of winning a copy you need to tell us your wedding story. It might be a wedding you attended or your own big day. It might be funny or a horror story. Did you walk up the aisle with your dress tucked in your knickers? Did you fall onto the wedding cake? Was the best man’s speech a shocker? We want to know (providing they’re clean).

Just post your story as a comment and we’ll select the winners on 19 August.

If you’d like to buy a copy of the book anyway it’s available at a very reasonable £4.95 from:

    • the gift shops at the Walker Art Gallery, Lady Lever Art Gallery and Sudley House (where the Hitched exhibition is being held)
    • by phoning 0151 478 4685
    • or by emailing publications team

    After 17 years together my partner and I decided to get married when the Ontario government legalized same sex marriage. We married in our home, in front of the fireplace as our altar. (How Victorian is that) We invited 50 of our closest friends and supporters. Our groom’s women were childhood friends who had been our supports through the tough years of our coming out. When the minister pronounced us married, the cheers were overwhelming. An amazing day we will remember until our death. We are now celebrating our 22nd year together.
