Elsie has pre-wedding nerves. The Cheveskis arrive for the wedding, as do the Hewitts. Albert is too ill to attend the wedding after the barge trip. Concepta feels Lucille is too sure of herself. A coach takes the residents to Warrington. Len promises Elsie he is not hurt by her marrying Steve. Rev. Bryan Hesketh looks forward to the wedding as it will be his first. The guests gather at the church: Annie, Jack, Lucille, Harry, Concepta, Minnie, Ena, Val, Ken, Hilda, Stan, David, Gary Strauss, Jim Cullie, Dave Pike, Al Carroll, Emily, Walter and Len. Ivan is the usher. Gregg is more nervous than Steve. Dennis leads Elsie down the aisle, followed by Dot and Linda.
