    Full title reads: "Stoke-By-Clare, Suffolk - 1932's First Big Wedding - Happy scenes at village wedding of Hon. Maysie Loch - daughter of Lord Loch, Captain of the King's Bodyguard - & Mr I. G. Lindsay."

    To the sound of church bells the happy couple walk out of the doorway of the church in Stoke-by-Clare, Suffolk. The groom, Mr I. G. Lindsay is presented with something by a woman standing to one side. The bride is wearing a long dress, a flower head dress and is carrying a small posy. They are followed by two bridesmaids who are carrying the train. People are lined up on either side of the path.

    Different angle. People scatter petals and confetti in the path of the couple as they walk down the path, which is covered by an awning. They stand at the end under the falling confetti. A car moves into the foreground.

    The bridesmaids and the rest of the wedding party walk down the covered path. The four bridesmaids pose at the end of the path. A car arrives.

    At the reception (?) the bride and groom stand with a guests at Stoke College the residence of Lord Loch. More guests come out of the French doors. The party line up. C/U the happy couple.

    There appears to have been a shorter, silent version of this item in Gazette 1884. This is currently missing.
