M/S of a married couple standing in the sunshine. M/S of the wedding party toasting their health. Various shots of the wedding party and bride and groom. The wedding party assembles beside a marquee. The bride and groom have their photographs taken emerging from the church. They walk slowly into a field. More shots of the bell ringers. Various shots of the bride and groom outside the church. M/Ss of the bell ringers.

    M/S of people riding very old fashioned three wheeler bikes across a field. They are dressed in antiquated dress. One man rides a Penny Farthing. Others ride early tandems. They arrive at the wedding reception. A man dressed in an old policeman's outfit arrives.

    Various shots of the couple carving a large piece of beef rather than a cake. The guests eat and drink. C/U of the guests laughing and eating, some in Edwardian (?) style dress. Bride carves the meat, bridegroom hands out sausages. L/S of a pub - the Chequers Inn - with the old bicycles being ridden past it towards the camera. The cyclists travel down a country lane.

    Note: there is a sequence showing a bride and two bridesmaids admiring their bouquets on the front of this set of cuts - think this is from another CP not Village Wedding.
