The chief parties were Sidney Franks (eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. J. Franks, of Pennant Hills), and Ida (youngest daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. J. Bellamy, of Carlingford). Her brother, Mr. Jack Bellamy, gave the bride away. The bride wore a dainty gown of white crepe de cline and georgette, while she was enveloped in a full tulle veil, surmounted by a wreath of orange blossom. Her bridal posy, together with a diamond brooch, were the gifts of the bridegroom. The bride was attended by two bridesmaids, viz., Miss Hilda Shields and Miss Mona Allen (gowned in white voile and wore black hats). Each wore pearl brooches, gifts of the bridegroom. The bridegroom was attended by Mr. R. ranks and Mr. E. Bellamy. At the reception, about 80 guests met the newly married couple and gave their congratu- lations.
