Dola Frances, the youngest of James and Laura Dunsmuir's ten children, married Lieutenant-Commander Henry James Francis Cavendish on Aug. 11, 1928. The above photograph was taken under Hatley Castle's porte cochere prior to their departure to Christ Church Cathedral in Victoria, where the young adoring bride and the naval hero had a lavish ceremony.
