Brown – Fletton

The marriage took place at St. Mary’s, Higham Ferrers, on Monday, the Rev. H. J. Fry officiating, of Miss Lilian Fletton, eldest daughter of Mr. F. W. Fletton (hairdresser) & Mrs. Fletton, of 3, School-place, Higham Ferrers, and Mr. John Sidney Brown, third son of Mr. and Mrs. George Brown, of John-street, Rushden. The bride wore a pretty dress of white satin with bridal veil, and wreath of orange blossom, and carried a bouquet of white sweet peas, stocks, pink carnations, gypsophilia, and asparagus fern, the gift of the bridegroom. Her jewellery consisted of a gold chain and pendant, also the gift of the bridegroom. The bridegroom, who is a well-known local footballer, wore a gold signet ring, the gift of the bride. Several years ago he was a member of the choir at St. Mary’s Church, Rushden.

The bride was given away by her father, and was attended by two bridesmaids – Misses Ella Brown (sister of the bridegroom) and Maud Fletton (sister of the bride).
