Serious Bride, Serious Groom, Serious Wedding

Posted on April 14, 2011 by team

Here are some pictures of a common wedding taken place in Moscow in 1971.

Nice doll is tied to the car.

A real colonel, clean-shaven, waiting for his future wife.

Everybody is very serious. Not a hint on a smile.

    They look so much alike they could be brother and sister

  5. George Johnson says:

    What was this!? A shotgun wedding? Pre-arranged by the Kremlin or something? A wedding for the party but not for the people’s sake?

    The only way to tell it wasn’t a funeral was by the way she was dressed.

    • Chris says:

      George, you cynical, ignorant fool; weddings in Soviet Russia had civil ceremonies, Christianity was persecuted.

      Although these people were poorer than those in the west they still lived much better than the vast majority of the world.

    40 years ago…

  8. RAB says:

    Is it possible that they were happy but nervous because of some one taking pictures.I mean that back then maybe cameras were somewhat forbidden?

    He is a KGB colonel. Obviously.
    KGB colonels never smiles, it was prohibited .D

    • testicules says:

      KGB colonel? He probably had her first husband sent to a gulag so he could get to her. She only married him so her first husband wouldn’t be hanged

      • Barbar says:

        Her first husband? Look at her – she is only 14.
        Anyway, changing old husband for the new colonel is a good deal. Look – she smiles. Ah, women are all the same.

  15. Arvid Blomerus says:

    Serious business.

    “So did you get laid last night?”

    “Hell no, we studied Marx and listened to Lenin´s speech on the radio.” :)

    I wonder what´s going on with that handsome couple these days.

    There’s plenty of smiles in those pictures. Blog owner is trying too hard to make stories, where none exist.

  20. Bobble Hat says:

    Wow, forty years ago. On a human note, I hope everything turned out OK for them. Although if he really was a colonel (looks too young, surely?), I don’t much thank him for threatening us in Europe with annihilation for so many years.

  21. fikamar says:

    maybe in these photo they’re not smiling
    but we don’t know in the FIRST NIGHT…. :D

  22. Adolfo Camara says:

    Is that “Soviet Champagne” they’re toasting with in pictures #13 and #14?

  23. Douglas says:
