    Wedding Bells
    St Luke's Church of England Emerald, was the setting for a pretty wedding on May 21, when Jeanee Daphne Elizabeth, only daughter of Mr and Mrs V. L Jeppesen, Freshfields, Bullery, was married to John Patrick, second son of Mr and the late Mrs T. Walsh, "Hibernia," Capella. The church was beautifully decorated by the friends of the bride with white dahlias, multi-coloured gerberas and masses of gaily coloured chrysanthemums and ferns, and the pews were adorned with streamers to tone with the attendants' frocking. The ceremony was performed by Rev. A. H. Bott and the bridegroom was supported by his two brothers and a cousin of the bride, as best man and groomsmen-Messrs Edward and Peter Walsh and Wesley Jeppesen. Mrs A. Bott was the organist.

    The bride entered the church with her father to the strains of the Wedding March. She chose white nylon marquisette over a satin foundation for her floor length bridal gown, which was made with a full skirt falling in graceful folds to form a very long train. The bodice featured a V shaped yoke with a high neckline and wide three-quarter length sleeves of silk needle-run lace. A pretty finish was the rouleau embroidery following the outline of the extended waistline round the neck, sleeves, yoke, hem of the skirt and train. Her veil wai lent by Mrs Keith White (Emerald) and was of fine Brussels net, edged with lace, in three tiers, and surmounted by a peaked halo of lace in a venetian effect finished with orange blossoms. She carried a cascade bouquet of white dahlias, chrysanthemums, frangipani, Cecil Brunner roses, asparagus and maiden-hair fern tied with satin streamers and added an heirloom of the family, a diamond pendant, and diamond earrings (the gift of the bridegroom).

    Mrs Jess Brown, as matron of honour, was dressed in old gold moire taffeta with a bouffant skirt and hip paniers. Her headdress was a curvette of gold ribbon, autumn-toned iceland poppies and tulle and her bouquet of autumn toned dahlias, chrysanthemums, shasta daisies, crotons and ferns was tied with gold ribbons. She wore gold earrings (the gift of the bridegroom). Miss Marcia Jeppesen, cousin of the bride, was chief bridesmaid and Miss Joy Walsh, sister of the bridegroom, was the other attendant. They were frocked alike in pale salmon pink shadowed and stiffened marquisette over a datin foundation with large double bustle bows at the back. The bodices featured rows of blue sequins. They carried shower bouquets of pale pink roses, gerberas, chrysanthemums and ferns, covered with tulle and tied with blue and pink ribbons. They also wore the bridegroom's gifts of platinum earrings, studded with white sapphires. For headdresses they chose pale blue Dolly Varden hats, with masses of pink and blue hand-made flowers.

    Little Jeanee Jeppesen, niece of the bride, as train bearer, wore a long frock of pale blue shadowed and stiffened marquisette over satin, made on Early Victorian lines. Her frilled halo had tiny pink hand-made flowers and tulle and she carried an Early Victorian posy of pale pink flowers. Her gift from the bridegroom was a gold cross and chain. During the signing of the register the congregation rendered the hymn "The Voice That Breathed O'er Eden." As the bride left the church she was presented with a horseshoe of blue forget-me-nots and lilies of the valley by her nephew, Gordon Jeppesen.

    The reception was held in the Diggers' Memorial Hall, where Mrs Jeppesen, the bride's mother, received 80 guests. She chose a black moss crepe frock made with a half bodice and three-quarter sleeves of dusty pink, heavily beaded in black. Her black Breton hat was of balliibuntal straw with black feather trimming. She pinned a posy of pink poppies on her shoulder and added black accessories. Mrs A. Walsh assisted at the reception and she wore a frock of black crepe de Chine, relieved with white, and a shoulder posy of red roses. Her black straw hat was trimmed with tulle and ribbon, and black accessories were included in her ensemble. Rev. A. Bott presided at the reception. Dancing continued until the couple departed to spend their honeymoon in Mackay and a tour of the North. The bride's travelling dress was of aqua blue reversible satin, with a brown felt hat trimmed with clusters of hand-made leaves and tulle. She added nigger accessories with a heart-shaped gold pendant, set with a white sapphire (the gift of the bridegroom). Their future home will be Earling Park, Chirnside, via Capella.
