Description

This film was made by an amateur filmmaker who was a farmer from Reighton, near Filey, North Yorkshire. The film features scenes in London as well as scenes of a wedding.

The film opens with a lengthy passage that shows long shots of London's famous landmarks including the filmmaker's daughters feeding the pigeons in Trafalgar Square, scenes around Buckingham Palace, and the Tower of London.

In the next scene, the family is gathered outside their house on a sunny day. There are close up shots of the filmmaker's son as well as more footage of family members and wedding guests who gather at the front of the house. Next, the wedding party arrives at the Town Hall. The bridesmaids are dressed in pink dresses and pose for the camera. The bride arrives and poses for pictures at the front of the church as well. Following the ceremony, the newlyweds exit the Town Hall. They pose for pictures with the wedding party before making their way into the car waiting to take them to the reception. Guests can be seen gathered around, and some throw confetti on the couple. There is more footage of the many guests, most of whom are dressed in winter coats and hats, and a sign for the Black Swan Hotel car park can be seen in the background. The film closes with shots of townspeople making their way down a country lane in Reighton.
