The bride, who entered the church with her father, was daintily gowned in a simple dress of ivory crepe de chine and georgette. Her beautiful court train which hung from her shoulders was of crepe de chine lined with shell pink, and was prettily trimmed with pearls. The bridal veil was of embroidered tulle, arranged mob cap fashion, and was held in place by a wreath of orange blossoms, kindly lent by Mrs. Barrett, of Goolmangar, her train and veil being lent by her cousin, Mrs. J. Wilson, of Goolmangar. The bride carried a lovely sheaf of arum lilies tied with tulle streamers, and she was attended by two bridesmaids. The chief bridesmaid, Miss L. Johnston, (sister), was becomingly gowned in pale pink net, trimmed with touches of pale blue with large tulle bow in her hair, and carried a beautiful, bouquet of red, white and pink Gerberas and asparagus fern, tied with pale pink tulle streamers. The second bridesmaid, Miss Eileen Dunstan (niece of the bridegroom), wore a dainty dress of blue silk trimmed with white ribbon. She also wore a large tulle bow in her hair and carried a bouquet of pale pink roses and harebells and asparagus fern, tied with pale blue tulle streamers. Each bridesmaid wore a Nellie Stewart bangle, the gifts of the bridegroom. The bridegroom was supported by his brother, Mr. Chas. Adams, as best man, and Mr. Oliver Johnston, cousin of the bride, as groomsman. After the ceremony the parents of the bride received the guests at John I. Smith's refreshment rooms, where the wedding supper was served, and the customary toasts were honored. The mother of the bride wore navy blue crepe de chine relieved with white georgette and black hat to match. The happy couple left by car for Ballina, en route to Sydney for their honey moon. The bride travelled in a dress of navy blue crepe de chine, trimmed with mastic. The bridegroom's gift to the bride was a xylonite set, and her gift to him was a set of military brushes.
