For some, marriage is a union of two souls meant to be together. It enriches the bond between the two parties
and allows a foundation on which a true family can be built on.
However, there are always the marriages that shouldn't happen.
This painting represents a marriage not meant to be. It conveys the varying emotions of the groom and the stages he
goes through. For the bride, this is her day. As she stares off into the crowd, craving the attention of all the spectators.
Joseph Carey Merrick (5 August 1862 – 11 April 1890)
