It’s unclear where this wedding took place, but it was filmed by Alfie Boulter, an East Londoner, and forms part of the Boulter Family Films archive. Guests gather outside a church while a pair of young flower girls wait for the bride. All are then whisked to the church in decorated white cars. Some shots inside the church show the bride and groom, and then the celebrations with family in the churchyard after, where the bride gets a kiss from a toddler.
