Imagine the excitement of honeymooning on an unsinkable ship....The loss of the Titanic on 15th April 1912 was a terrible tragedy for all of the 1,517 people who died - but the stories of the 12 brides and grooms who joined the ship to celebrate their honeymoons are especially poignant. Gill Paul explores the haunting strories of heroism, hope and love.

Synopsis

Titanic Love Stories by Gill Paul

Love stories from the Titanic include a multi-millionaire John Jacob Astor and his wife Madeleine, who had eloped to escape the gossip-mongers. Only Madeleine and their unborn child would make it home. Then there was Daniel Marvin, whose wedding to Mary Farquarson was the first recorded on film. The groom helped his young bride onto a life raft but refused to save himself. And there were Edward and Ethel Beane, who had saved up for six years to get married and lost everything on the Titantic. They survived, but refused ever to talk about what happened to them.
