This wedding-dress was worn in 1854 by Svea Beata Myhrman (who lived 1819-1910). That means she was 35 when she got married in this white silk dress (and yes, it was her first marriage). Generally speaking it is not completely correct to call this dress Victorian, since it's Swedish, but this dress was on display at Nordiska Museet, Stockholm, in their "British så in i Norden" exhibition. The name is an untranslatable pun, but the theme was the British influence on Swedish and Nordic fashion, and this dress shows the popularizing from queen Victoria's wedding to get married in white even up here in the North - though black was popular too all through the 19th century.

And yes, the dress IS white, but the lighting was low and soft to protect the garment.

Example of an armour that could have been worn by a member of Order of St. John. On display at the museum at the Grandmaster's palace in Valletta (in what was once the palace stables). And no, it's not a person inside the armour....
