Singleton Methodist Church was prettily decorated with November lillies and fern on Saturday when the Rev.Wesley Stocks performed the ceremony at the wedding of
Marjorie Amilda Merrlck and William Henry Cann. Marjorie is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Roland Merrlck, of George Street, and Bill is the youngest son of the late Mr. and Mrs. J. Cann, of Dunolly, Singleton. The bride, who was given away by her father, was radiant in a bridal gown of brocaded satin and tulle veil, and she carried a bouquet of white November lillies, gladioli white carnations and white gardenias. Her matron of honour was Mrs. Alick Merrlck, who made an attractive picture in a figured organdie frock and white satin hat. Her bouquet was composed of pink gladioli pink carnations and blue forget-me-nots. Mr. Norman Cann, brother of the groom, served as best man, and Mr Gordon Merrick, brother of the bride, was groomsman. The church decorations were skilfully done by Mesdames H. Medhurst and A. Merrick. Music for the wedding ceremony was played by Miss Joyce Hosie on the church organ. The reception after the ceremony was held at the Bathurst Street residence of Mr. and Mrs. Gordon Merrick. The guests were received by the mother of the bride, Mrs. Roland Merrick, and Mrs. Gordon Merrick. For her wedding ensemble Mrs Roland Merrick favoured a navy floral and white frock, with white accessories, while Mrs. Gordon Merrick chose n frock of black sheer, with a spray of red roses. When the happy couple left on their honeymoon to an undisclosed destination Marjorie travelled in a frock of grey crepe. They will make their future home at Belford.
