Miss Cicely Paragreen, a sister of the bridegroom, and Miss Nellie Jones, friend of the bride, the bridesmaids, were suitably costumed in navy blue with hats to match. They each wore an expanding waistbelt of Belgian manufacture, with sterling silver anchor set in rolled gold for the clasp, the gift of the bridegroom. The duties of best man were ably carried out by Mr. W. Peacock, brother of the bride. The organist, Mr. A. E. Wright, rendered in finished style the Wedding March. A reception was afterwards held at the bride’s home. The bride is a well-known member of St. Mary’s Church, Higham, and the bridegroom was a valued member of the Rushden Corps of the St. John Ambulance. The presents were numerous and handsome.
