Hi Deb, its worth rescanning at least 300dpi, not only for us but you will also have the benefit of being able to print out a larger photo.
If you get stuck, send me a pm and I'll go through it with you.

Hi Deb  :)

Just my 2 cents worth, lovely pic.  Jenny is right well worth a good scan to colour and then enlarge for your parents.

Good luck with it  :D

Here I am haunting the pictures again,

What a lovely lovely dress Deb, in 1961 that would have been very expensive as well. They look lovely both of them and so young!

Yes...over here there's a men's wedding attire hire place that says in one of their adverts that "her dress probably cost more than your car..." :D

Lovely photo!

...Deb, you may get better response by putting this in a separate post...some restorers have bandwidth and other restrictions and they don't re-visit older posts...

Fabulous dress! I can barely sew a button on :P

Hi Deb,

Aren't 'choirboys angelic little soul's'  Of course they aren't they just look it!   ::) ::) ::)

You Mum is a very clever Girl to do that lovely dress herself!
