    The issue date for this clip must be incorrect, as many sources state the day of the wedding to be Wednesday 27 January 1937. Here's one example......

    The bride, (not currently named in the shots list), is Lavinia Strutt.

    "Bride arriving in a car, leaves the car with father" - her father is Algernon Strutt, 3rd Baron Belper.
