    Wedding film - various shots of bride Betty Coombes, groom Richard Donald and their guests.

  • Description

    Titles read: 'Pathe Pictures Presents - The Wedding of Mr Richard Donald and Miss Betty Coombes (aka Mr Donald's Wedding).

    Various shots of well dressed wedding guests posing for the camera before going into a marquee. C/U of the sign outside St Mark's Church, North Audley Street. More shots of wedding guests. C/U of two men - the groom and his best man perhaps? C/U of the groom. He looks very serious. He cracks a smile eventually. More guests arrive - including a man in military dress. Bridesmaids arrive. Bride steps out of the car and goes inside. M/S of bride and groom coming out of the church. C/U of the happy couple. Camera tilts up to show the wedding dress. Couple get into their car. The best man poses with three bridesmaids. Various shots of the guests and wedding party leaving the church. Most of the women wear fur coats (and elaborate corsages - SL).

    Note: it seems that Pathe cameramen were available to film "weddings, bar mitzvahs - anything!" So this could be anyone! (Or could be a Pathe employee or ABPC person? - SL.)
