Photograph, Genge-Walker Wedding

About this object

This is the wedding photograph of Elizabeth (Ella) Walker and Tom Genge. The couple were married on 6 November 1907 at St John's Church Invercargill. The bride's dress was a brown shade and she wore yellow roses, her favorite flowers. This photo was actually taken a month or so after the wedding as the original photos did not 'turn out' so they had to be retaken.

The couple had three children - Evelyn 1910, Lyall 1912, and Alwyn 1913.

Tom and Ella are buried together in the Eastern Cemetery, Invercargill.

Thank you for the information Geoff. This photograph was among a box of unidentified people, and we thought they possibly looked like the Stirling-Allan Family. Fortunately, popping photographs such as this online enables us to confirm or dismiss information, thus enriching the knowledge on Southland history. Thanks again!

The above information is all wrong. The is my Grandfather and Grandmother Tom Genge and Elizabeth Walker. They were married 6.11.1908 at St John's Church Invercargill. The brides dress was in brown shade and she wore yellow roses, her favorite. This photo was actually takec a month or so after the wedding as the original photos did not 'turn out' so they had to retake this one.
