The film begins with two women, one dressed in pink the other in blue – Keith's mother, Elsie Blampey, nee Codd and formerly Rogers – leaving a house.  Bridesmaids and other guests arrive at the church for the wedding.  Brian Rogers, the best man, is outside the church with the groom, his brother Keith. The bride's mother arrives.  She is dressed in a floral outfit and white hat and accompanied by her young son Norman and a young girl.  The bride, in a white dress, arrives with her father, with a man holding a boy.  The young boy in a dark jacket with an open neck shirt and a large carnation buttonhole is Keith's youngest brother Stanley Rogers.

They are seen leaving the church, with the guests milling around outside.  The newlyweds get into a waiting car and drive off.  We see them pass three runners out jogging and arrive at the reception.  

A young man is wandering around the grounds of the reception building being held at the Grange Park Hotel, Willerby, near Hull. David Rogers, the best man, is shown giving his speech and reading out telegrams – having given the camera to someone else to film. The rest of the film is in the grounds of the Grange Park Hotel whilst the reception goes on inside. The groom and best man’s brother, Joseph Rogers, are shown holding his coat like a matadors cloak and then leapfrogging over a bird bath, their half-brother William Codd then arrives with their cousin Brian Robinson. The bride and groom's young brothers, Stanley Rogers and Norman Stanford, spend the rest of the film play fighting.
