In a break from tradition, the future King George VI's marriage to Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon was a public affair.
Elizabeth wore a dress in the fashion of the early 1920s, made by Madame Handley Seymour. Prince Albert wore full RAF dress.
Elizabeth laid her bouquet at the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior in the Abbey, and royal brides since have copied this gesture.
The couple honeymooned in Scotland and Surrey.
