  • Short Summary

    Captain Cunningham-Reid marries Mary Ashley who wears a stunning shimmer dress.

  • Description

    Item title reads: " The wedding of the season. Immense crowds, mainly women, rush to see marriage of Miss Mary Ashley - the beautiful young heiress - to Capt. Cunningham-Reid, M.P."

    Westminster, London

    At St. Margaret's the police hold back the crowds of women and children. The bride appears, wearing a stunning white beaded dress with high heeled white satin shoes. She is seen with husband in top hat and tails leaving the steps of the church, and walking alongside the waving crowds, a procession behind her. The tiered beaded dress shimmers as she walks. People throw rice and confetti. Photographers rush to take photos. The bridesmaids wear short white frilly dresses and the guests are also fashionably dressed.

    Note: They must have be the couple of the moment. Mary walks elegantly, like a model. Beautiful.
