The Rushden Argus March 3rd 1922, transcribed by Susan Manton
Marriage of Miss Ethel Hyde at Rushden
Wedding Bells

Much interest was centred in a wedding which took place at St. Mary’s Church Rushden, on Tuesday morning. Miss Ethel Hyde, second daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James Hyde, “The Shrubbery” Rushden was the bride, the Rev. P.E. Robson marrying her to Mr. Reginald William Miller, M.C. only son of Mr. and Mrs. F. Miller, of Harby, Leicestershire.

Mr & Mrs Miller
The bride, whose father is the principal of Messrs. James Hyde Ltd., shoe manufacturers has a large number of friends in the town and neighbourhood and the bridegroom and ex-captain of the Dorset Regiment, is well known in the Leicester district. Among the large assembly for the wedding service were numerous visitors from that county.

Before the arrival of the bride, who came into the church on the arm of her father, Mr. J. Enos Smith played suitable organ music. The bride had three attendants – Miss Louie Hyde (sister), Miss Florrie Hyde (sister) and Miss Grace Pickard (niece of the bridegroom) and Mr. C. Dudley Brown of Kettering was the best man.

Dull satin, with an overlay of silk lace and peach sequin trimmings, formed the bride’s dress and the veil was crowned with orange blossom. The bride carried a white shower bouquet. Miss Louie Hyde was attired in a tea-coloured gown trimmed with mauve lace, and a hat of gold and tulle to match. Blue shot taffeta dresses, with ruched panels and black lace hats, were worn by the younger maids. Miss L. Hyde had a bouquet of parma violets, the other three maids carrying pink carnations. All three wore gold bangles – gifts from the bridegroom. Mrs. James Hyde (mother of the bride) wore a dress of navy georgette of crepe-de-chine, with grey hat and ospreys, and carried a bouquet of scarlet carnations.

After the ceremony 50 guests assembled at the Queen Victoria Hotel for the reception. Mr. and Mrs. Miller motored to Wellingborough, there to entrain at 3.15 for Torquay. Mrs. Miller’s travelling attire was a fawn silk dress, lace trimmed, with fur coat and blue hat. The newly wedded pair will live at Nottingham.

Many choice presents have been received, these including a silver tea set and silver cake stand (to the bride) from the employees of Messrs. James Hyde Ltd.
