Wedding in Brittany (1908)Documentary, Short · 21 March 1908
A picturesque celebration shows the prettily costumed Britons with their sturdy wives leaving the church, where the ceremony was performed. The feast is next in order, and on a huge lawn, simple board tables with benches are laid out in long rows, and the guests take their places at the sumptuous repast which was cooked in the open air. When the feast is over, the poor of the vicinity are served what remains. The merriment of the banquet over, the guests disperse about the lawn, where to the tune of the bag-piper, who plays from a farm wagon, they dance a picturesque gavotte and another native dance in which the hundred participants are formed in a huge circle which, moves slowly round as the dancers execute an intricate step. The film includes a view of the simple wedding presents, and the last picture shows the young bridal couple.
