Scenes outside a church following a wedding service, with the wedding party gathered on the Church steps clutching flowers, as filmed by Cyril Hayworth in 1951.


This film shows two young children and a young woman wearing bridesmaids dresses and coats outside the front of the church. The bride is handed a horseshoe by a young boy, whom kisses the child in thanks. The Bride, Groom, parents [?] and Bridesmaids assemble at church entrance for portrait photographs. The young bridesmaids stand at the front of the group with their hands in fur hand-warmers. The bride's veil blows in the wind as the couple lead the congregation of guests around the church grounds to a small village hall building adjacent to the church. Guests wear winter coats and suits, hats and furs and file in through the door.
