The subtitle to Unveiled is 'Images and Intimations of Marriage'. It is a delightful pictorial of unposed photographs, taken at weddings by a very skilled photographer. Audrey Vernick's black and white shots of tender and amusing moments are well worth the time it takes to enjoy this book.

Reflections on marriage by a bride or groom accompany each shot. Some of these are well-thought out and almost mystical. Others are more down-to-earth, while several are concerned about making sure the wedding guests have a good time. I especially liked the tidbit about a dog being the ring bearer. Or the couple who encouraged their guests to come in costume.

Unveiled should give pause to someone about to be married. It will help them stop the whirlwind of preparations for a moment and give thought to just what marriage is all about, to realize the work that marriage entails and the richness of life that the future can hold.
