Summary

Wedding scenes outside a church after the ceremony, filmed by Joan in Gravesend, Kent, 1958.

Description

Two women look at a baby in a pram at the church where a couple, Margaret and Gerry, have been married. The bride and groom emerge from the church, smiling to their guests. Two young bridesmaids wear white dresses, shoes and socks, and two young women wear blue bridesmaids dresses. The couple pose with the Vicar outside the church. Guests look on and talk as the bride is greeted by young children with gifts beneath a churchyard gateway. A large family group stand together for a photograph. Guests throw confetti at the couple by their car, as a photographer takes a picture. The second part of the film shows a group gathered outside a building signed "Trumans Beers" on a residential street (possibly a pub for the reception?) a series of dark shots then close the film.
