A wedding which occasioned a good deal of local interest was celebrated at St. Matthew''s Church, at 2.30 o''clock yesterday afternoon, when Mr J. F. Redmond, manager of the Eketahuna branch of the W.F.C.A., was married to Miss B. M. ("Trissy") Welch, youngest daughter of Mrs H. Welch, of Lincoln-road, Masterton. The Rev. W. Earee was the officiating clergyman, and the ceremony was performed in the presence of a very large gathering. The bride, who was given away by her brother, Mr J. Welch, was attended by Misses C. Redmond (sister of the bridegroom), Edith Welch, Doras Bray, and Stella McLaughlan (nieces of the bride). The bride was attired in a gown of white Duchesse satin, trimmed with silk lace and chiffon, wearing the orthodox veil and orange blossom, and carrying a prayer book in place of the usual floral bouquet. Miss Redmond and Miss Welch wore very pretty white tucked silk dresses with black picturesque hats, and the two younger maids dainty buttercup silk frocks with quaint hats of chiffon and silk to match, also carrying crooks of blue and white violets. The mother of the bride wore a dress of black Mervelicux with cape and bonnet of black and steel to match. The bride wore a handsome gold brooch the gift of the bridegroom, and the bridesmaids were presented with initial greenstone brooches. Mr B. C. Bennett acted as best man, and Mr A. B. Welch groomsman. Miss Peterson presided at the organ. A reception was held after the ceremony at the residence of the bride''s mother, and there was a large number of guests present. Appropriate congratulatory speeches were made and toasts were honoured. The happy couple left by the 5.15 train for the Hutt. They were the recipients of numerous wedding gifts.
