WEDDING. A quiet but pretty wedding was celebrated in All Saints’ Church of England, Bodalla, on 21st ult., the contracting parties being Amy, youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. Love of Bodalla, and Edgar, second son of Mrs. Geo. Taylor, late of Bega. The bride, who was given away by her father, looked pretty in a dress of white crepe georgette and wore the customary wreath and veil, and carried a shower bouquet of white roses and asparagus fern, with streamers of white ribbon. She was attended by two bridesmaids, Miss Greta Love (sister) late of Sydney, and Miss Alice Hunt, of Bodalla. The bridesmaids’ dresses were ivory crepe-de-chine and mob caps. They carried bouquets of pale pink roses and maiden-hair fern, and wore gold brooches, the gifts of the bridegroom. The bridegroom was attended by his brother Lieut. Ray Taylor. After the ceremony the happy couple left amidst showers of rice and confetti for Bega, where they intend to stay a few months before leaving to settle in New Zealand. Miss Amy Love will be greatly missed from our presence, as she has always been a great help and ever ready to give a willing hand in all leading functions.
