Siddal and Rossetti

Elizabeth Siddal and Dante Gabriel Rossetti in Hastings (New Photos!)

On the 23rd of May in 1860, Elizabeth Siddal and Dante Gabriel Rossetti were wed.  Their vows were exchanged in St Clement’s Church (there is a panoramic virtual tour here).  I am so grateful to Lynda Smith for allowing me to share her photos of the church (originally posted to her twitter account, @mouse_11) All photos copyright Lynda Smith, used with permission.
