Description

[Wedding 1] - A bride and two bridesmaids hold their dresses as they walk up to the church from their car. The bride and her father pause briefly for a photograph, her veil blowing wildly on a gusty day outside the church. The newly married couple smile to their guests, as a photographer takes their portrait. Guests throw confetti over the couple as they climb into the wedding car.

[Family Scenes] - A couple talk to their children sat on a granite beach wall, dressed in school uniform. Brief scenes of a group of adults and children playing together in a park, follow.

[Wedding II] - Guests and bridesmaids have gathered at the church. A car arrives, and the bride, helped by her father, climbs out onto the pavement. She wears a white net veil, which billows in the wind held in place by a short cropped hairstyle. Guests hold umbrellas on the street as the newly married couple climb back into the car.
