Bert Sommer Music and Bridal Veils





Bert Sommer as he performed at Woodstock 1969

40 Years just zipped on by..................

Photograph of me and my beloved Mother on my wedding day
and my treasured bridal veil sent to me as a gift for a keepsake treasure
It is from Budapest



And now one of my favorites:

This Marriage - Ode 2667

May these vows and this marriage be blessed.
May it be sweet milk,
this marriage, like wine and halvah.
May this marriage offer fruit and shade
like the date palm.
May this marriage be full of laughter,
our every day a day in paradise.
May this marriage be a sign of compassion,
a seal of happiness here and hereafter.
May this marriage have a fair face and a good name,
an omen as welcome
as the moon in a clear blue sky.
I am out of words to describe
how spirit mingles in this marriage.

Kabir Helminski "Love is a Stranger" Threshold Books, 1993




Oldest Bridal Tradition
The veil dates back to ancient Rome, when it was flame-yellow, always worn over the face, and called a flammeum.

What trivia can you tell me about bridal veils I would love to know.

Information from this blog(Information on Ireland and Fairies regarding bridal veils and wedding trivia)


Thank you for your information



The love you give away is the only love you keep"--Elbert Hubbard


Fairies are said to covet anything that is beautiful, which includes the bride and all her fineries.


The wedding veil has special meaning in Ireland. In ancient time, it was believed to hide the bride away from leprechauns and fairies who would try to capture the bride and take her beautiful dress. Today in Ireland, veils are often embroidered with shamrocks or the Claddagh symbol.


It is also lucky for the bride and groom to wear old shoes when they get married. This would prevent their being kidnapped by fairies. In County Cork, it is believed that fairies would whisk away the wedding couple to the "Land of the Ever Young," just to get a hold of a pair of handsome new shoes.

Add personalised embellishments, with a scattering of pearls, crystals, rhinestones, daises and other appliqu├ęs to add some sparkle and shine to the head piece on your Big Day with a custom bridal veil bridal veil. Matched with your outfit, it makes a great accessory for when walking down the aisle.
