Steers, Claude road, and Gladys Mary, daughter of Mr. and Mrs.F. Saltmarsh, West Mooreville. The Rev. N. G. Higgs; B.A., officiated. The church had been prettily decorated by lady friends of the bride, an arch of ferns and spring blossom being formed from which was hung a handsome wedding bell, under which the bride and bridegroom knelt.   The bridle entered the church on the arm of her father, by whom she was
given away. She looked charming in a neat costume of fawn serge, with silk stichings; with dew drop chiffon, vest and hat to match. She carried a bouquet of double white violets tied with pink tulle and white satin streamers, the work and gift of Miss E. Blizzard. Miss Dorrie Saltmarsh was bridesmaid and was dressed in a grey crepe de chine frock with pale blue georgette hat trimmed with hand-made flowers and black velvet streamers. She also wore the bridegroom's gift, a handsome moonstone ring, and carried a bouquet of white violets, stocks and ferns tied with pink tulle, which was also the gift of Miss Blizzard. Miss Jean Summers was maid of honor, and was dressed in white crepe de chine with a wide sash looped through a posy of hand-made pink roses, and also wore the bridegroom's gift, a gold brooch set with bloodstones. She carried a beautiful white, satin cushion worked with silver horseshoes and blue forget-me-nots, on which the bride knelt, the work and gift of Mrs. Tom Milne. The bridegroom was supported by Mr. L. Gale (late ,40th Batt. A.I.F.). The congregation sang "The Voice that Breathed o'er Eden," and the "Wedding March" was played. The Rev. Higgs presented the bride with a handsome Bible from the Sunday School children and teachers, she having been connected with the school from childhood-first as a scholar and afterwards as a teacher. The party then left the church amidst a shower of confetti for the home of the bride's parents, where a beautiful wedding tea was served. Here the decorations were carried out in red and white (the bridegroom's colors) and spring blossoms. On the table stood a three-tier wedding cake, the gift of Mrs. G. Rollins and Mrs. W.Summers. After the usual toasts had been proposed and honored, the happy couple left by motor for their future home at Yolla. The bride travelled in a brown tweed costume and wore a white velvet hat relieved with berries. The presents were valuable and numerous, and included several cheques. The bride
groom's present to the bride was a silver backed brush, comb and mirror, and the bride's to the bridegroom a travelling rug.  Prior to the happy event the young couple were entertained by the Mooreville residents to a social evening, when a handsome lot of presents were received.
