Queen Elizabeth married Philip Mountbatten on the 20th November 1947, just two years after the end of WW2. Naturally, there weren't as many cameras back then, but there is some amazing footage of the day.

Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip were married at Westminster Abbey, and it was without question one of the biggest media frenzies the world had ever seen up to that point. 

Their wedding received unprecedented media coverage, and due to advancements in technology at the time surrounding cameras, much of the day was captured on camera.
