Wedding Wednesday – Hacker/Hunt 1902

I love this photograph taken on the 7th October 1902 showing Alfred Benjamin Hacker and his new wife Elizabeth Hunt.


They got married at St Peter ad Vincula, the parish church of Broad Hinton, Wiltshire. For much of his life he was a master baker in the area, later joining the GWR as a plasterer in Swindon. They had 10 children, one of which was my maternal grandmother.

One response to “Wedding Wednesday – Hacker/Hunt 1902

  1. Alfred Benjamin was the son of the master baker in Broad Hinton, and became a master baker in his own right. He delivered bread to the village and other villages by horse and cart for many years.
    Elizabeth was a pupil-teacher at the village school, and companion to the squire’s wife. On her wedding day, the lady of the manor sent a large bouquet from her garden for the bride to carry, and the squire sent his carriage to take her to the church.
