Brown, of Milford. The Rev. A. B. Todd was the officiating minister. The Woodbury Presbyterian Church was nicely decorated for the occasion. The bridesmaids were the Misses Flo. Webb, Jean Brown, and Lexy Cormack, and Mr F. Brown, brother of the bridegroom, acted as best man, and Mr A. Sutherland as groomsman. After the ceremony in the church the party drove to the residence of the bride's father, where in a large marquee on the lawn a sumptuous breakfast was spread. The guests numbered about 90. The following toasts were honoured : —"The bride and bridegroom," proposed by the Rev. A. B. Todd, and heartily responded to; "The bridesmaids," and "The parents," The presents received by the happy couple were numerous and handsome. In the evening a social was held in the school, at which over a hundred were present. Dancing was indulged in till the early hours of morning. Songs were contributed by the following ladies and gentlemen :- Mrs Stewart, Miss Brown and Messrs Palmer, Glanville, and Cooling. During the evening Mr F. Flatman, jun., proposed the health of "The bride and bridegroom," which was enthusiastically received. An abundant supply of refreshments was handed round, and altogether a most enjoyable evening was spent.
