Wedding bells in the Old days

Love this picture that Peter  H  kindly e-mailed me just now from the Daily Telegraph  called ” Wedding Bells” by James Hayllar. I imagine this is just how the tower at Little Paxton would have looked like – the layout is so similar – though the fashions have changed somewhat…

Is the bride about to come in with her  father, or has she just gone out with her new husband? Maybe if the ringers are about to ring then she has just gone out….or maybe they used to ring a bride in??? I would date this mid to late Victorian, note the Victorian tiles on the floor is the usual pattern.
