A very pretty wedding was celebrated in St. James' Church of Eng- land, Cudal, on Wednesday, 14th inst. The contracting parties were Miss Ida Ford, eldest daughter of Mr and Mrs Chas. Ford, of " Fairview, and Mr. Arthur Burridge, eldest son of Mr and Mrs J. D. Burridge, of Mandagery. The church was packed to overflowing with visitors, well wishers, and the wedding party, the parties being both very well known and popular throughout the district. Rev. L. A. Marina officiated. As the bride entered the church on the arm of her father, Miss Stella Carman played the hymn, " The Voice that Breathed o'er Eden." The bride was attended by two brides- maids, Miss Lena Ford and Miss Ethel Burridge, sisters of the bride and bridegroom respectively. Mr. W. Burridge acted as best man and Mr W. Ford as groomsman. Mr Chas. Ford, father of the bride, gave her away. As the party was leaving the church, Miss Carman played the " Wedding March." After the ceremony, the wedding party, amid showers of rice and con- fetti, left for " Fairview," where a sumptuous breakfast was awaiting. A large marquee, built for the occasion, was artistically decorated with foliage, streamers, etc. Over the centre of the table was suspended a huge wedding bell; also an arch, with wedding bell in the centre, was erected for the bride and groom. Fully 150 guests
sat down to the breakfast. Rev. Mr Marina proposed the toast of " The Bride and Bridegroom," to which the bridegroom responded. Mr A. Burridge gave" The Bridesmaids," Mr W. Burridge responding. Mr T. Cantrill proposed " Parents of Bride and Groom." Mr G. Ford replied, and submitted " The Visitors," Mr G. Holmes returning thanks. Breakfast concluded, the wedding party drove to Manildra, where the happy couple took train for Sydney to spend the honeymoon. The bride looked charming in a dress of white liberty silk over glace, bugle trimmings, fringed with bebe silk ribbons; veil of orange blossoms. She carried a large bouquet of white roses with streamers. The bride's going away dress was a blue costume—picture hat to match. The bridesmaids were dressed in cream ninon, relieved with pink silk. They each carried a large bouquet of flowers.
