Once upon a time, there was a virgin.
She was 20 years old, and, as you might say, a rare bird.
Wake up. You can't sleep forever.
-Morning, Dad. -Good morning, love.
There's some tea for you.
Down the brow, across the other side of the town, lived the young man she'd been going steady with for two years.
He was a patient lad, and everybody said they were made for each other.
His name was Arthur. Arthur Fitton.
Morning, Mr Fitton.
-Morning. -No gasworks today then?
It must be a few years since you took a day off.
It'd look bloody funny, wouldn't it, if our Arthur were to wed, and his own father not in church?
Well, you've a lovely day for it.
Aye, so far.
Come on, Arthur. Out with you.
I've got to get this room ready for the bride.
I don't want her seeing it in this state.
-She wouldn't mind, Mum. -Mm, but I would.
Oh, come on. Don't fuss, eh? It's only for one night, you know.
And then-- Look. Look at that.
Golden sun, golden sand, champagne by the bucket.
Mm. Costing you a bonny penny too. Your dad and me made do with Blackpool.
-Times have changed, Mum. -And you'd better too, if you're going downtown to get them tickets.
No, I'm seeing Joe Thompson first. Picking up me wages.
-Here, I thought you wanted a lift. -Yeah, I'm just coming.
Listen, you two. Come back in good time.
We don't want no hold-ups. 2:00 sharp, the vicar said.
-Oh, Mum. -He'll be there. Don't worry, Mum.
Mind how you go on that machine.
-Hello, Arthur. -Morning, Eddie. Morning, Joe.
How do, Arthur? I didn't expect to see you today.
I've come for my wages.
-I'd have kept it for you. -We may need the cash, you know.
Ah. Like that, is it? Okay.
Here you are. One week, less two days.
-Sign there. -Did you find someone?
Yeah, starting Sunday. But I know these relief projectionists.
Your job's open for two weeks, not a minute longer, so be back.
Ta. Well, I'd better get weaving. I've a lot to do.
You have tonight, lad. So don't go getting in a muck sweat, now, or when the time comes, you'll be all worn out, eh?
I'll be there to kiss the bride!
Hey. You're jumpy.
Don't he daft! I was wondering where you got to.
It was Joe Thompson. He doesn't show till nearly 11 :00. Anyway, I got the money.
-I got mine too. Here it is. -Good.
Come on. We're late.
-Hang on, Geoff. -All right.
-Yes, sir? -We hooked for the Moonlight Special.
-Oh, yes. Mister, uh-- -Fitton.
All right, Mr Phillips, if you'll just get the special gift wallet for Mr and Mrs Fitton-- presentation maps, free-meal vouchers, souvenir labels.
And I shall need your passports and £115.
It's in my maiden name. Does it matter?
-We're getting married today. -Oh, good, sir.
Thank you, Mr Phillips. There are your gift wallets.
Now, if you will be here at noon tomorrow, your luxury coach will be waiting to take you south to Gatwick Airport.
And there's nothing else we'll have to pay for?
-Not a thing. -How about the tickets?
You'll get those on board the coach tomorrow.
-And congratulations. -Thanks very much.
Well, we'd better hurry. Thanks.
Thank you, sir.
-How about you then? -I'll jump on a bus.
Okay, Geoff, take her away.
And don't keep me waiting!
-Thanks, Geoff. -Ta-ra.
Quick, love, upstairs. Your mother's getting in a proper state.
- I'm sorry, Dad. it couldn't be helped. - Leslie?
You'll have to go and fetch her. She's got no consideration for anybody.
You can save your breath. She's back.
I'm gonna miss you, Dad!
-Me too, love. -Look, it's not him you're marrying.
And me and Dora's been waiting here the past hour, worrying.
You'd better let the dog out. We can't leave her locked up all day.
I can't do everything.
-Oh, I'm sorry, Dora. -Don't worry, love. Bags of time.
Right. Let's make sure it fits.
I just don't understand why you have to leave everything to the last moment.
I told you, it's the savings. You have to give seven days' notice.
Then you should have made up your mind about the honeymoon earlier.
At any road, asking for trouble.
Bride seeing the groom before the ceremony? It's terrible had luck.
Oh, Mum, that's a load of old codswallop.
-You what? -Nobody believes that stuff nowadays.
Oh, nobody believes anything nowadays. I was hoping I brought you up different.
-Must you keep going on at her? -Nobody's going on at anybody.
-And have you got Dora's bouquet yet? -Yes.
And the sausage rolls-- did you phone the shop?
-Yes. -Well, are the shoes polished?
-No. -Look, I can't do everything.
Come on, love, get in that dress.
Watch them sleeves.
Everything left to the last minute.
Always the same in this house.
Let's have a look at you.
Oh, she looks fab! Honest, Jen, you look fab!
Dearly beloved, we are gathered together here in the sight of God and in the face of this congregation to join together this man and this woman in holy matrimony.
First, it was ordained for the procreation of children to be brought up in the fear and the nurture of the Lord and to the praise of his holy name.
Secondly, it was ordained for a remedy against sin and to avoid fornication.
Keep your mind on what you're doing, son.
For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother and shall be joined unto his wife, and they too shall be one flesh.
This is a great mystery.
-You're squeezing me to death, Mr Fitton. -Aye. Lovely, isn't it?
- Ooh! - Hey.
What's he doing to you, eh?
He's having a job keeping in time, poor chap.
I thought he gave her a lovely service, didn't you?
-Oh, yes. -Oh, yeah.
You're not done proper if you're not done in church. That's what I say.
I'm surprised, though, he let her have his organ in Lent.
He wouldn't let our Ethel have it, not for love nor money.
"You've got to go without something," he said.
How much does he charge then? I mean, for his organ?
Five guineas all in, I believe.
-Ooh, that's a lot. -He does well.
♪ It's time you went ♪
-Oh, there's some life in you, Mr Fitton. -I can still lick some of the young 'uns.
I'd stop boasting if I were you and serve some more drinks.
-I'm sure Joe Thompson could do with one. -Ah, I wouldn't say no.
- Come on, love. - Whew!
Well then, I think it's all gone off very well, Mrs Piper.
Very nice party.
