Bill York to Betty Gillat

This photograph looks like it was taken at the bottom of the Church Institute drive so I am presuming this is were they may have held their reception. St Paulís Church is in the background. Did they get married here? I wonder who the two little girls are at the back of this charming wedding photograph
