Pack – Spavins

On Christmas Day at the Congregational Church, Rushden, the wedding took place of Miss Minnie Spavins, second daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Hezekial Spavins, of Harborough-road, Rushden, and Mr. John Cecil Pack, second son of Councillor and Mrs. A. Pack, of Higham Ferrers. The Rev. C. J. Keeler was the officiating minister. The bride, charmingly attired in white silk with a bridal veil, carried a bouquet of lilies of the valley, tulips, and chrysanthemums. She was given away by her father. Four bridesmaids attended – Miss Ethel Spavins, sister of the bride wore a dress of marine blue velvet, the Misses Elsie and Florence Pack, sisters of the bridegroom, were suitably attired in white silk. Miss Lily Wood, friend of the bride, wore a dress of saxe blue satin, all the bridesmaids wearing black hats with white feathers. They each also wore a gold pendant, the gift of the bridegroom. Mr. A. Pack, brother of the bridegroom carried on the duties of best man. Mr. W. L. Sargent officiated at the organ, and gave a spirited rendering of the Wedding March. A reception was subsequently held in the Congregational Schoolrooms, about 70 guests being present. Mr. and Mrs. Pack were the recipients of many valuable presents.
