Alfred and Vera Leech NSW, Australia Wedding Photo Restoration
« on: Monday 27 July 20 00:32 BST (UK) »
Hi
I am looking for some help to fix these photos up.
These people are my maternal great grandparents (my maternal grandfathers mum and dad).

The first photo is Vera on her wedding day.

The second photo is my great grandfathers best friend and Alfred Godfrey Leech on Alfs wedding day.

Third photo is Alf and Vera on their wedding day 15th December 1928 in Narrandera, NSW, Australia.

Thanks
Stephanie.

I've had a couple of goes at the first picture, neither of them very successful, I'm afraid - there's just too much deterioration in the original.

In the first I've tried to recover some of Vera's face without making it up. In the second I've used her face from the third photo.
