The bride arrives and her veil is adjusted by her bridesmaids before going into the church. The bride and groom and wedding party are then seen exiting the church and posing for photographs. Guests at the wedding; women wearing furs and the men in top hats, stand outside the church or pose for formal photographs. The camera lingers on the children; Jocelyn dressed as a bridesmaid, and younger sister Gillian. Finally guests gather in a marquee. [See also the first part of this film [J.
