When Thelma Carr and Danny Mellor marry at the United Synagogue on Cheetham Hill Rd in Manchester, the cameras are ready to capture this stylish post-war wedding. As the groom worked for Columbia Pictures and the bride's close family for the Rank Organisation, it is no surprise that the event is a glamorous, sophisticated affair, and this film is a treat for wedding and fashion aficionados alike.
