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.

The fibulae by number 1 are two made of silver with niello decorations (niello is a mixture of copper, silver and lead, used for decorations - popular with Early Medieval jewellery) dating to the end of the 5th century A.D. The fibulae by number 3 are also made of silver, and decorated with garnets. They date to circa 500-525 A.D.
They were all found in graves at Saint-Martin-de-Fontenay, Calvados, Normandy.

On display at the museum at Château de Caen.

A wedding-dress of cream silk satin wedding dress comprising bodice, skirt and overskirt, trimmed with tulle and Honiton lace, made by miss E. Gill in London.

Victoria and Albert museum, named after the British queen and her consort, was founded in 1852. It has the world's greatest museum of decorative art and design, with a permanent collection spanning over 5 000 years and including 4 500 000 objects. The museum is divided into 145 galleries and houses objects of marble, iron, glass, ceramics among others. The collection of Italian Renaissance objects is the largest outside of Italy. But there is also collections of Asian artifacts. And everything is neatly divided into collections - be it plaster-castings or Chinese art.

The museum is often abbreviated V&A.
