Richards officiated in the absence of the Rector. The bride, who was given away by Mr. G. A. White, of 11 Beaconsfield-place, wore a navy blue silk dress and white hat trimmed with flowers and ribbon to match. She was attended by Miss Phoebe Rebecca White (friend), who was attired in a white silk blouse and salmon-coloured skirt with white hat trimmed with roses. Mr. Ben Wilson (brother of the bridegroom) acted as best man. After the ceremony a reception was held at the Public Hall, about 30 guests assembling. Later in the evening Mr. W.
