This one's close to home for me. The bride's mother was a member of the Upcher family of Sheringham Hall, and I come from Sheringham in Norfolk. I can remember the last Upcher who lived there. He was a bachelor, an only son and no children, and so a very old family came to an end in the direct line.

This couple became the 8th Earl and Countess of Macclesfield. I believe there was some scandal or row involving the present Earl, their grandson. He was evicted from his home or something.

The issue comes that the earls grandfather turned the castle into a trust. And every male member was entitled to a share of the company it formed. Unfortunately for the earl, his cousin Robert as the only male left in his branch, holds majority shares in the company. The company wanted the earl and his wife to pay rent to remain which is why they went to court. The earl and his wife lost. They have two years to move. The castle though is a shell, most not even modernized with electricity. The earl seems to actually come out the better. The actual castle which needs millions in repairs he still owns shares in even if not living there. But all its contents belong to him. All the furniture, priceless art work, antique books and more are private possessions of the earl. Only the actual building was in trust.

Oh, Edinburgh in February. Lovely month! It's a wonder it wasn't snowing! And the little page boys were in shirts without jackets!
Claudia's mother (Claudia seems to have been in her mid-30's when she married) was Lady Constance Bowes Lyon, sister to the Queen Mother's father, Claude, the 14th Earl. Therefore Claudia was cousin to the Queen Mum.

This happy couple stayed together, but their only child, a son, Robin, was married three times.

The year and month Winston Churchill became Prime Minister in the immediate wake of the German invasion of France!

Sarah was a descendant, through a younger son, of Claude 13th Earl of Strathmore, the Queen Mother's grandfather. The groom, obviously in uniform, ended up a Lt Colonel, and the marriage endured, with children.

It's interesting, because although the wedding took place in 1940, clothes rationing was not to begin until the following year, so the bride and bridesmaids could indulge themselves in all the lace and white satin they wanted!

Within a couple of years of this wedding most British brides were going the matching skirt, jacket, pretty hat and sensible shoes route on their wedding day. Also, obviously no milling crowds to be seen. By May 1940 most ordinary people had more things to occupy them than Society weddings!

'Another bride, another June...' only it's February, a month that seemed to be reasonably popular for Society weddings between the wars. Lots of crowds and press photographers out in the cold!
James was an officer in the army, and the couple went on to have seven children!

Lady Margaret was born in October 1907, which would surely make her 22 when she wed, not 21 which the title cards for this seems to suggest. Silent films were still being shown in cinemas as this clip illustrates (title cards etc). The fashions are typically very late 1920's, lots of headgear low on the brow. About eight bridesmaids, all adult, (though one sister and potential attendant had died aged twelve a couple of years before) seen parading behind.

The end of November, another cold month, another huge crowd waiting for the bride and guests to appear.

Lady Mabel was perhaps shy. She had terrible posture judging by this clip and we see her scuttling hunch-backed into the church. Perhaps she didn't like Pathe being present, though it was a bit mean not to give the crowds a bit of a treat.

She was only twenty while the groom was thirty five. Quite an age gap. The marriage endured though, and they had three sons and a daughter.

You'd think all these people, mostly women, would have something better to do than battle police in cold weather in order to catch a glimpse of a bride none of them would probably even see again. The bride's brother Michael was in the RAF during the war and was killed in the same plane crash as the Duke of Kent.

A Roman Catholic wedding of course. The Howards have always been RC. The couple had children. All girls however, (four of them) so the next heir was a second cousin once removed who was already a peer on his own account.

Perhaps it was a small treate for them, and brightened up their lives.

Not such bad weather in late September, and of course in a pre Internet and TV age, people did turn out in huge numbers for Society weddings. However, I'm sure royalty was the big draw card on this occasion. Even Queen Mary turned up for the reception!

Marion was an Austrian of Jewish descent who had come to Britain to escape the Nazis, in, I think, about 1938. She was quite a talented concert pianist and of course the Earl was very involved in many aspects of musical life in England.

That marriage produced three sons but was very troubled. The Earl had a son with Patricia Tuckwell, who became his second wife, before it ended, as Marion refused a divorce for a very long time. Then of course she married Jeremy Thorpe, the Liberal leader, who was later mired in controversy.

It's a good job this very young couple didn't know what was ahead of them when they married on a very damp January day. They had two children, a boy and a girl. The girl, Charmian, died aged four in 1937. Joan, the bride in the clip above, died aged 30, a year later. The groom died of his wounds while on active service in France in 1940, during the Dunkirk debacle. He was 32. (His brother Desmond was killed in WW2 as well.) Only the couple's son survived and inherited his grandfather's peerage. In 1942 he became Viscount Boyne at the age of 11.
