Rushden Echo, 23rd June 1922, transcribed by Kay Collins
Murdin – Bradshaw

At the Park-road Baptist Church, Rushden, on Monday, a wedding took place, the contracting parties being Miss Mary Elizabeth Bradshaw, elder daughter of Mr and Mrs A W Bradshaw, of 40, Grove-street, Higham Ferrers, and Mr Edward Murdin, only son of Mr and Mrs J H Murdin, of 105, Cromwell-road, Rushden. Mr A Lawes, of the Open Brethren, Northampton, officiated, and the Rev J A Sutherland, pastor, was present. The bride, who was given away by her father, looked very charming in a dress of white ivory georgette and a bridal veil trimmed with orange blossom (kindly lent by a friend). She carried a bouquet of white roses, lilies, and white carnations, the gift of the bridegroom. The bridesmaids were Misses Margaret Bradshaw, sister of the bride, and Alice Murdin, bridegroom’s sister. Each was prettily attired in pale blue crepe-de-chine and a hat to match. Their bouquets were composed of pink and white carnation and red and white roses. They wore gold brooches, which, with the bouquets were the gift of the bridegroom. Mr Edgar Burfield acted as best man. The parties were motored to and from the Church by Messrs Lawrence and Richardson. After the ceremony a reception was held at the bride’s home, and Mr and Mrs Murdin subsequently left for Sheringham, the bride travelling in a fawn gabardine costume. Amongst the numerous wedding gifts were a splendid dinner service from the staff and employees at the Rushden Gas Works, where the bridegroom has worked since he left school, and a handsome brass fern bowl from the bride’s fellow-workers in the closing department of Messrs. Walker and Gunn’s factory, Higham Ferrers.
