This mid to late 1960s film was shot on the UK mainland (possibly England) and shows a young couple being married. The film starts with a woman (probably the bride to be) wearing an unusual outfit decorated with pom-poms, flowers and silver items; before moving on to various shots of the wedding party outside the church and reception. The film ends with footage of people walking in a garden and exploring the woods.

Filmed by Dennis and Stella Shepherd. Donated by Chris and Peter Reep.

This footage shows the bride to be wearing an usual outfit decorated with pompoms, flowers and silver items; and carrying a large parasol. This is possibly a wedding tradition not native to Shetland.
