Rushden Echo, 9th August 1918
Taylor - Garrett
Rushden and Higham Wedding

An event of interest to many of the members of the Park-road Wesleyan Church, Rushden, was the marriage which took place on Saturday last, at that place of worship, of Miss Lizzie Garrett, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James Garrett, of 67, Harborough-road, Rushden, to Pte. Frank Farrand Taylor, of the Yorks. and Lancs. Regiment.  The bride was tastefully dressed in white satin with tulle veil, and was attended by two bridesmaids – her sister, Miss Edith Garrett, wearing a dress of shell pink crepe de chine, and her friend, Miss F. Ball, who was similarly attired in mauve crepe de chine.  Both wore brooches, the gifts of the bridegroom.  The bride carried a bouquet of white roses and lilies, and the bridesmaid’s flowers were roses and pink and white carnations.  The bride was given away by her mother.  Two hymns were sung at the service, and the “Wedding March” was played by the organist, Miss Rose Peck.  After a reception in the Wesleyan Schoolroom, at which the Rev. H. Shaw gave a very timely-phrased address, and at which there were forty or fifty guests, the happy pair went off to Leicester to spend a few days before the bridegroom rejoins his regiment.  The workpeople at Messrs. Jaques and Son’s factory, where the bride was employed, presented her with an eiderdown quilt and two table-spoons.  The bouquets were the gift of the bridegroom.
