Set in 1908 in Clecklewyke in the heart of Northern England, three well-to-do West Yorkshire couples - the Parkers, Soppitts and Helliwells - married on the same day, at the same church, and by the same vicar, join to celebrate 25 years of blissful matrimony. Disaster strikes with the shocking revelation that the vicar who married them wasn’t actually licensed – these pillars of the church and the community, aren’t as respectably married as they thought they were!
