Rushden Echo, 9th April 1915, transcribed by Gill Hollis
Maddock - Haddon

The marriage took place on Saturday, at the Park Road Wesleyan Church, Rushden, of Mr. William Thomas Maddock, only son of Mr. and Mrs. John Maddock, of 56 Grove Road, Rushden, to Miss Florence Kate Haddon, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. G. Haddon, of 8 Robinson Road, Rushden. The Rev. R. Heaps officiated. The bride was for some years a member of the choir of the Park Road Wesleyan Church and a teacher in the Sunday School. The bride, who was given away by her father, was prettily attired in a costume of saxe blue and wore a cream leghorn hat, trimmed with pink roses; she wore a spray of lilies of the valley and white hyacinths. She was accompanied by two bridesmaids, Miss Lily Hensman and Miss Beatrice Smith (Higham Ferrers), who were dressed in navy blue costumes and cream leghorn hats and wore sprays of lilies of the valley and white hyacinths. Mr. Ernest Haddon (brother of the bride) acted as best man.

After the ceremony a reception was held at the home of the bride’s parents. Mr. and Mrs. Maddock subsequently left for Brighton where the honeymoon is being spent. The bride’s travelling costume was of navy blue, with hat to match.
