Harry and Concepta argue when he irons his trousers on the dining table when she wants to set it. Dennis tries to practice his Best Man's speech with constant interruptions from Elsie. Walter wears a collarless Beatles suit for the wedding, much to Elsie's annoyance. Cynical about marriage, she takes off her wedding ring. Martha refuses to go to the service as she hasn't been invited to the reception and St. Paul's is too "high church". The residents start to gather in No.7 from 2.30pm onwards to await the cars. None of them want to share a car with Ena so she arrives at the church on her own. Myra arrives before Jerry who has been taken to the reception rooms for a drink by Dennis and Walter. Realising that they are late, they rush to the church where the Verger refuses to allow Walter to bring in his guitar. At the reception, Dennis reads telegrams from the Walkers and Sheila and makes his speech before Jerry makes his own short, nervous one. No one talks to Ena at the reception. Back at the Rovers, Annie tells Elsie that her views on marriage are wrong as the women and the men bicker over the battle of the sexes. The Booths go off on honeymoon in Torquay under a shower of confetti. While Walter and his band play The HolliesWhole World Over, Len gets blind drunk and insults Ena before staggering out on his own. Ena returns to the Vestry to find it wrecked and the furniture slashed. She breaks down.
The church used for the outside broadcast sequences in this episode was St. Clement's which stood at the end of Archie Street in Salford (used in the programme's opening title sequence) and the scenes showing the guests, bride and groom arriving at the church door (which was situated on Brighton Street, the other side of the church from Archie Street) were punctuated by cries from the crowd, particularly generated towards the character of Jerry Booth when he came into view, all of which made it to the transmitted episode. Some of these scenes had overlaid organ music. Amateur colour footage shot by bystanders on the day of location recording can be seen here starting at 5'09".
