Description

Wedding scenes open the film, as the bridal party arrives. After the ceremony, guests mingle on the steps of the church. Shots follow of Woodward's daughters and a friend taking photographs outside their house. The girls are part of a group then seen posing for the camera in fancy dress. This is followed by scenes of the family next to their float for the Worthing Fair, alongside other participants

A steam train is then filmed before scenes of another wedding - the bride enters the church and the bride and groom pose for photographs after the service. This is followed by scenes from the reception.

The final section shows a compilation of shots of a harbour, filmed from a boat as it arrives at a port. Parisian street scenes follow shots of the family sightseeing at the Sacré-Cœur Basilica and the Eiffel Tower.
