5th July 1952

This was my mum and dad’s wedding day at St Mary’s Roman Catholic Church, Surrenden Road, Brighton on 5th July 1952.  It was a very small gathering, with only a few guests including my paternal grandmother, best man and a friend of my mum.  My mum lived in Celbridge, Co Kildare in Southern Ireland then moved with her aunt to Tivoli Crescent, Brighton. My dad lived in Dean Street, Brighton.

Celebrating 60 years

My mum remembers it was a very hot day and after the service they went for a meal in the centre of Brighton and then in the afternoon went to the pictures to get out of the heat.  Both are now living in Lancing, West Sussex and will be celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary this year.

  • Hi, my name is Angela and I was born in Brighton. I remember going to a church where we also did dancing where we were taught by Mr & Mrs Pain. I am wondering if these are the same people. If so are there any photos that were taken of us that you could email me? Thanks

  • Hi Angela, Sorry the wrong Mr and Mrs Pain. Lovely to see your comment though. Do you still live in Brighton?
