A photograph of wedding guests and onlookers at St Margaret's Church, Westminster, taken by James Jarche for the Daily Herald newspaper on 26 June, 1934. Guests attend the society wedding of Mr W R Norman and Barbara Boot, the daughter of Lord Trent. Gentlemen are formally dressed in top hat and tails, a fashion little changed from the late nineteenth century. The women are dressed in 1930s fashions. St Margaret's stands besides Westminster Abbey in Parliament Square. Founded in the twelth century, it is the parish church for the City of Westminster and the Houses of Parliament.
