Rushden Echo, 6th July 1917, transcribed by Gill Hollis

Chamberlain – Still

A military wedding took place at the Park-road Wesleyan Church, Rushden, yesterday afternoon, when Pte. Andrew Charles Chamberlain, of the Australian Forces, only son of Mr. and Mrs. C. Chamberlain, of Wellingborough-road, Rushden, was married to Miss Harriet Still, eldest daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Still, formerly of Dartford, Kent.  The Rev. H. Stanley Southall officiated.

The bride, who was given away by Driver Robert Burton (friend of the bridegroom), also of the Australian Forces, was charmingly gowned in white silk voile, with white tagel hat, and she carried a shower bouquet of white roses, orange blossom, etc., the gift of the bridegroom.  Her jewellery consisted of a gold turquoise and pearl pendant, also the gift of the bridegroom.

Four bridesmaids were in attendance, viz., Miss F. E. Still (sister of the bride), who wore an effective coat frock of embroidered colienner, Miss H. Downing (cousin of the bridegroom), who was tastefully attired in pink silk French voile, Miss H. Glibbery (cousin of the bridegroom), who wore a pretty dress of mauve voile, and Miss P. Glibbery (cousin of the bridegroom), whose dress was of cream silk poplin trimmed with satin.  All the bridesmaids wore picture hats to match their respective dresses, and gold brooches, the gifts of the bridegroom.  Mr. Neville (friend of the bridegroom) officiated as best man.

Subsequent to the ceremony a reception was held at the bridegroom’s home, and later in the day, Pte. and Mrs. Chamberlain left for Brighton for the honeymoon.  The happy couple were the recipients of a large number of handsome and useful presents.
