The bride who was given away by her father, looked charming in a handsome robe of soft white charmeuse satin daintily trimmed with limerick lace. She wore the orthodox veil and orange blossoms and carried a beautiful bouquet of white carnatons and sweet peas with sprays of maidenhair and asparagus fern with white satin streamers. She was assisted by Mess Ruby PAWSON and Miss Rita EDMONDS only sister of the bride who looked sweet in dainty dresses of white embroidered voile and white satin hats with pink roses. They carried bouquets of pink sweetpeas and sprays of asparagus fern with white satin streamers.

The Rev J G Rosher was the officiating clergyman.
The brides present to the groom was a gold-mounted walking stick. The grooms present to the bride was a handsome gold brooch and to the bridesmaids gold bangles. After the ceremony the guests were entertained in the Foresters Hall, where a stupendous breakfast was partaken of during which several toasts were duly honoured.
The presents were handsome and costly, including several cheques. Special mention may be made of the handsome bouquet which were the work and gift of Mrs G F DECLEY.
