WEDDING

FOSTER-WALES.

A very pretty wedding, and one which created a great deal of interest locally, was solemnised at St. John's Church, Young, on Wednesday afternoon, the contracting parties being Mr. Reg Foster, eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. H .Foster, and Miss Ruby Wales, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. O. Wales, both of Wambanumba. The Rev. S. A. T. Champion officiated.

The bride, who entered the church on the arm of her father, wore a charming gown of georgette over embroidered lace, and carried a bouquet of pink carnations and sweet peas. She also wore the customary bridal veil with wreath of orange blossoms, in mob cap style.

The bridesmaid, Miss Ivy Wales, sister of the bride, wore a voile costume trimmed with filet lace, and carried a bouquet of pink sweet peas. Two little basket girls, Misses Linda Foster and Mavis Starr, dressed in pink crepe de chine trimmed with blue and carrying baskets of pink sweet peas, looked very dainty.

Mrs. O. Wales, mother of the bride, wore a navy blue gown of cashmere do soie, while Mrs. Foster, mother of the bridegroom, wore black cashmere de soie. Mr. Will Foster carried out the duties of best man.

During the signing of the register, Miss Crook, very sweetly rendered "The Peace of Allah," Mrs. Tresilian presiding at the organ.

After the ceremony the bridal party motored to "Oatlands," the residenceof Mr. and Mrs. H. Foster, where a sumptuous wedding breakfast was partaken of by a large number of relatives and friends. Rev. S. A. T. Champion acted as chairman and proposed the toast of the "Bride and Bridegroom." Mr. Reg. Foster suitably responded. Then Mr. Hatter, ably seconded by Mr. Sinclair, proposed the toast of the "Parents of the Bride and Bridegroom." Mr. McBeth of Sydney, brother-in-law of Mr. O. Wales, responded on behalf of the bride's parents and Mr. H. Foster responded for Mrs. Foster and himself. The toast of "The Bridesmaid" was proposed by Mr. McBeth and responded to by the best man, Mr. Will Foster. Mr. P. J. Fowler proposed the health of Mrs. Foster, senr., and Mr. H. Donges responded.

The beautiful three-decker cake which adorned the table was made by Mrs. H. Foster, and was indeed a credit to her.

The bridegroom's gift to the bride was a gold pendant, and to the bridesmaid and little basket girls a gold

bangle each. The bride's gift to the bridegroom was a gold albert. The bride was also the recipient of a splendid array of useful and beautiful presents.

At the conclusion of the breakfast, Mr. Foster invited all to spend the evening in dancing, and a large crowd spent a very happy time to music supplied by Mr. and Mrs. Withers and Ike Somerfield (violin), Miss Franklin, Miss Amy Cunich and Mr W. Hatter (piano), and Messrs. W. McCabe, H. Donges, C. Kleem and C. Price (accordeons). Mr. McBeth again caused a good laugh by singing in his characteristic style, two comic songs, viz., "I've got them," and a parody on "Asleep in the Deep." He was accompanied by Mrs. McBeth. Miss Nerida McBeth, an elocutionist of no mean ability, was particulary good in rendering two recitations: "In the usual way" and "Mrs. Paggledy's juvenile party." Miss Franklin, to her own accompaniment, very sweetly rendered the song "Don't you remember the time?"

After supper Mr. Reg Foster was presented with a handsome shaving outfit by the members of the football club, of which he is treasurer. Mr. Bob Hall, president of the club, in making the presentation, eulogised the splendid work Mr. Reg Foster had done in helping the club along and wished him and his wife a long life and a happy one. Other speakers to add their testimony were Messrs.Hatter, Jas. Hall, junr., and George Gluyas.

At 1 a.m. a very enjoyable evening was brought to a close by Mr. W. Venables thanking all those who helped to give the enjoyment. He concluded by wishing the newly married couple a successful and happy life. He then called for three hearty cheers which were enthusiastically given.1
