• Short Summary

    The wedding of Miss Joan Verney and Hon G Hamilton Russell at St. Margaret's, Westminster.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "London. 1931's First Big Society Wedding. Big crowds brave cold and damp to get glimpse of Miss Joan Verney and Hon G Hamilton Russell at St. Margaret's, Westminster."

    St. Margaret's Church, Westminster, London.

    The happy couple come out of Church. Their way is lined by guardsmen in bearskins / hats. The couple are followed by a host of bridesmaids.

    Dark shots as photographers get pictures of the couple. A large crowd have come out to see them.

    Intertitle reads: "Lord Lascelles - the King's Grandson - made his first public appearance."

    Presumably one of the several pageboys we see is Lord George Henry Hubert Harewood, Earl of Lascelles. He is the son of the Princess Royal.
