Royal Bride Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon Leaving For Westminster Abbey (1923)

The wedding of Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon (later Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother) and Prince Albert, Duke of York (later King George VI), took place on 26 April 1923 at Westminster Abbey.

Lady Elizabeth was attended by eight bridesmaids. Her wedding dress was made from deep ivory chiffon moire, embroidered with pearls and a silver thread.

In an unexpected and unprecedented gesture, Elizabeth laid her bouquet at the Tomb of The Unknown Warrior on her way into the Abbey, in memory of her brother Fergus. Ever since, the bouquets of subsequent royal brides have traditionally been laid at the tomb, though after the wedding ceremony rather than before.
