    The Wedding of Diana Churchill - Winston's Daughter - to J Bailey. Large crowds turn out to watch.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "London. The Churchill Wedding. 'All the world and his wife' crowd to see 'Winston's' lovely daughter, Diana, married to Mr J Bailey."


    Diana Churchill, in her wedding dress, and Winston Churchill, smoking his traditional cigar, come out of the doorway of their London home. A large number of photographers are their to capture the image. A car draws up and Winston and Diana get in.

    At the Church (possibly St. Margaret's, Parliament Square) Diana gets out of the car very quickly, while Winston takes his time and removes his overcoat.

    Exterior shots of the Church. Crowds have gathered to see the wedding. As the bride and groom come out of the Church the crowds move forwards and have to be held back by the police.

    The bridal party come past the camera. Sarah Churchill is one of the bridesmaids. Clementine Churchill is walking with the groom's father. Winston is with the groom's mother. Also in the group is a young looking Randolph Churchill.

    Good shots of the excited looking crowd watching Diana and her husband, John Bailey. Once again lots of photographers and cameramen are in evidence. The happy couple make their way to the car.

    Wedding guests have to make their way through the crowd. Racing tipster Prince Monalulu is pointing out guests. Amongst the guests is David Lloyd George.

    Sound Track Missing. Mute Print in tin. NB. Diana later married politician Duncan Sandys.
