Summary

This black and white film shows the wedding of Charles Eric Lucas ('Joe') and Doris Brander ('Biddy') on the 7th of June 1923. The film also shows some scenes filmed at a later date showing Biddy and Joe with a baby.

Description

A series of intertitles written in poetic prose, introduce scenes of the wedding couple with their family on their way to St Margaret's Church. After the service the couple place a wreath on a war memorial, kiss and return to Warnham Court. The film then shows the couple posing with a baby, on a garden bench, with Biddy's father, Colonel Brander and dog. This is followed by a scene of the grandmother (?) or nanny and nurse holding the baby outside the house; two toddlers are then seen standing, looking out of a window. The scenes with the baby are repeated in TID: 4905.
