    I don't know why, but these old photos almost ever have a very delicate greyscale. I love that :)

    This newspaper article seems quite relevant for this wedding reception: trove.nla.gov.au/ndp/del/article/23600443

    [https://www.flickr.com/photos/kaynich] Thanks so much for your detective work! We think it is very likely a photograph of the "tete-a-tete" reception mentioned in the newspaper article you found. We're going to look more into Nunnington House and confirm. We can then add names too at least the bride and groom and a link to the articles in our catalogue. Thanks again from the SLQ Discovery Team.

    A bit of background research has confirmed this is the wedding reception of Captain Hubert Carter and Miss Violet Smith in the grounds of 'Nunnington' at Kangaroo Point, Queensland.
