The bridegroom was formerly manager of Messrs. Webb Bros., Rushden. The ceremony was attended by a large number of friends of the happy and popular couple. It was conducted by the Rector, the Rev. Percy Robson. The bride, who was given away by her father, looked very charming in an extremely pretty dress of cream gabardine, embroidered with silver. She wore a veil lent by Mrs Moore, of Stenbury, Isle of Wight, and carried a posy of white roses, the gift of the bridegroom. She was attended by Miss Elizabeth Panter, her friend, of Little Houghton. The maid was effectively gowned in lavender gabardine georgette and Tricote, with a hat to match, and wore an amethyst ring, the gift of the bridegroom. She also carried a posy of pink roses. The best man was Mr. George O. Toon, of Kettering. Mr. Enos Smith, the organist, played the wedding music from "Lohengrin."
