    There is a shot of 'small bridesmaid' in the film with no reference to a particular individual. It is possible that it is a shot of a flower girl - three years old Ann Helen Shipton, daughter of Mrs. Harold Shipton, former Miss Janet Attlee, the bride's eldest sister.
    There were two bridesmaids at the wedding: Miss Felicity Attlee (Mr. Attlee's second daughter) and Miss Prudence Davis (sister of the bridegroom).
