As in the post devoted to Marie Feodorovna wedding, I posted the images of Empress Alexandra's wedding here for an easier finding for all the people of the Forum.

Set number two:

As in the previous post ****The credits for all the images are for the italian site tipsimages.it****

The bride and groom walk together


Two more pics of the ceremony

The archive seems to be a gathering spot of images from the Illustrated London News, Sphere, Tatler and other magazines owned by the same publisher.

Mary Evans doesn't have their 'own' photos either--they have old magazine illustrations, postcards, CDVs, etc....I don't know if rue des images works the same way. All of their images are from public sources.

They still have rights on their images ? I mean on Mary Evans.

I don't know how it works. Most of the photos are out of copyright based on age but they would have the rights to the particular copy of the image they have--just like I would on my copy of that same issue or postcard or cdv? They have some VERY common images--I can't imagine they hold the copyright on the image itself.

Mary Evans has images from ILN, The Graphic, The Sphere, The Sketch, The Bystander, The Tatler, The Illustrated Sporting and Dramatic News, The Illustrated War News and Britannia and Eve. If I own a particular photo that is from one of those magazines but also widely published elsewhere, and the image is more than 75 years old, I don't think that they can claim exclusivity. They can license them to people though but, couldn't I or someone else with a large royal image collection? Many of the recent photo books are put together at least in part from personal collections.  Of course, Mary Evans can give you high-quality, high-res images.

For what i ve seen rue des images got their own images and also exclusive (modern) colorized versions. And only works with publishers (its a private page)

Thanks for the explanation. I used quite a few of their images in my picture books. Glad to know they are out of copyright.

That's my understanding anyway. Their images are way to common to be exclusive. I'm no expert though. We have a thread on this if anyone wants to read further on it. Marlene has explained quite a bit in the past.

Indeed. Quite a few English Authors used ILN images in their books as illustration without paying any fee.

Actually she wore her mother's -- the cloth of silver dress belonged to Victoria Melita, the Grand Duchess Kirill.


Grand Duchess Kira...I believe she wore her grandmother's wedding dress for this..

Looking other images of the wedding and comparing uniforms, i think it might be August Wilhelm



Or one of his cousins, but i think its mos probable August W.

Not so young then, if it was August Wilhelm, but from the uniform I would go for one of the cousins.
