A fashionably dressed bride and her equally stylish bridesmaids brighten up the gloom of a wet autumn day in this delightful short film, shot at the South Manchester Synagogue. Never mind the weather, this is a very happy occasion for the newly wed Laurence and Lily, smiling through the shower of confetti, and for their families and friends, enjoying the attention of the camera.
