Orange Blossoms.-— Our Takaka contemporary states :— A very pretty wedding took place at West Takaka the other day, when Miss Edith Annie Newport and Mr J. W. Handcock were the contracting parties. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. W H. Klingender, at the residence of the bride's parents, and in the presence of some 25 guests, who were afterwards entertained with a sumptuous breakfast. The bride was attended by the Misses Fanny L. Newport and Georgina Handcock as bridesmaids. The happy couple were the recipients of an unusually large number of presents, which were both pretty and useful. Mr and Mrs Handcock left for Nelson the following morning, but will return to live at Whawharangi.
Edith married John William HANDCOCK, son of William Lawrence HANDCOCK and Sarah WALKER, in 1899 in Takaka, Golden Bay, Nelson, New Zealand. (John William HANDCOCK was born in 1866 and died in 1936.)
