    All references to "Eileen Bennet", (including that in the title), should read Eileen Bennett.

    The wedding shown here is that of tennis player Eileen Bennett to the painter Edmund Fearnley Whittingstall.

    Reducing the clip's current date range of 1920-29, the wedding took place on 19 November 1929.

    "wedding at Westminster Abbey" - the wedding takes place not at Westminster Abbey, but in St Margaret's Church in the Abbey's grounds.
