    This is the wedding of Richard Lloyd George, not Gwilym Lloyd George.

    (Gwilym Lloyd George's wedding can be seen in clip 236.35 though).

    The bride here is Roberta Ida Freeman McAlpine.

    The date of this wedding is 7 April 1917.

    Further footage of this event can be seen in clip 1864.52.
