It was common to bring out the cine camera on special family occasions and this wedding was no exception. The filmmaker captures the blushing bride and groom outside a church in West London, and fabulous flowery frocks and fashions add to the 1970s flavour as wedding guests wave off the newlyweds who depart for their honeymoon in a VW Beetle decorated with the obligatory tin cans and streamers.
