Family wedding in Felixstowe
Having an architect for a father came in handy on Beris Wrinch's wedding day. A special bridge was designed so the wedding party could reach the marquee in style.
From the collection of:
Summer 1934 sees the wedding of Miss Beris Wrinch to Mr Barlow at the Church of St Peter & St Paul in Old Felixstowe. The Reception is held near the bride's parents' home and the bridal bridge, built specially for the occasion, adds some fun for the bridal party and guests - non more so than for 7 year old page boy, Dick Catchpole. Dick however has since confessed to not feeling too 'comfortable' in his peachy satin outfit, but is to be commended for his dedication to duty.
These lovely scenes and memories are captured by amateur cine enthusiast and family friend Cyril Catchpole.
