• Short Summary

    Hundreds of newlyweds descend on Jersey for a mass honeymoon (ugh).

  • Description

    Titles read: "JERSEY - 1,000 HONEYMOONERS GET TOGETHER!".

    Several shots of a huge crowd of honeymooners arriving at Jersey 'honeymooner's hotel' The Merton with suitcases.

    Inside we see waiters pouring and serving hundreds of glasses of champagne. A group of girls with identical urchin hairdos drink a champagne toast while their husbands stand behind them. Exterior shot panning across a long row of windows on the top two floors of the hotel as couples lean out and wave at the camera.

    General view of the seafront and main street. At the Park Pavilion in St Helier we see hundreds of couples at the Annual Honeymoon Ball. Enormous crowds of them cover the dancefloor while others watch from the balcony. Good closer shots of couples dancing slowly. Top shot of the couples on the dancefloor, waving.

    M/S of a couple walking up a staircase with their arms around each other; they look back at the camera. C/U of a notice hung on a door reading 'Do Not Disturb'. The door opens slightly and a woman hangs an L plate above the sign.

    Cataloguer's note: Personally, I'd rather go somewhere secluded. How sickening to be in Jersey when this lot turn up.
