The bride, who was given away by her uncle, wore a dress of embroidered eolienne, trimmed with pink georgette and silver braid. She also wore a silver and gold net hat, trimmed with silver leaves and pink flowers. Her ornaments included turquoise earrings and a long neck chain, and gold and fade expanding bracelet watch, and she carried a sheaf of Madonna lilies and asparagus fern, the gifts of the bridegroom. Her two cousins, Miss Maisie Baxter and Miss Loe Whitelock, were maids of honour. They wore golden brown corduroy velvet dresses, and carried sheaves of golden brown chrysanthemums, and wore sapphire rings and gold bracelets, the gifts of the bridegroom. Mr F H Beavis officiated as best man.

The bride's going away dress was a golden brown velour coat dress, with coat to match. She also wore black fox furs and a black velvet hat trimmed with gold.

A reception was afterwards held at the residence of her uncle, and later the happy couple left for London, where the bridegroom will shortly be taking up an appointment at the War Office, after having served and been wounded at the Front.
