• Short Summary

    Two people - both around 3 foot tall - get married in York. Large crowds look on.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "York. A Tiny Town Romance. 34 inch George Stoddart, aged 32, weds Evelyn Crane, who is 38 inches and aged 27!"

    York, Yorkshire.

    Exterior shot of Church. Policemen hold back large crowds who are trying to see the bride and groom as they leave. The happy couple are given three cheers as they come out.

    The bride and groom stand amidst the crowd with several members of the congregation and their bridesmaids. (The happy couple and many of the congregation are very small - possibly dwarfs / dwarves or midgets).

    A man hoists the bride and groom onto his shoulders so the crowd can see them. Several of the bridesmaids are also lifted up. Rice is thrown.

    Pan across the crowd to the wedding group.
