A photograph of a bride, groom, pageboys and bridesmaids outside St Margaret's Church in Westminster, London, taken by James Jarche for the Daily Herald newspaper on 18 January, 1933. Crowds gathered to catch a glimpse of the elegant society wedding of Sir Hugh Smiley and Miss Nancy Beaton. The bridesmaids hold garlands of flowers as they walk behind the couple and their pageboys. St Margaret's stands besides Westminster Abbey in Parliament Square, London. Founded in the twelfth century, it is the parish church for the City of Westminster and the Houses of Parliament.
