Wedding Bells
At the residence of the bride's parents Arapiles, on Tuesday last, the
marriage was celebrated of Mr Reginald LEAR, son of Mr and Mrs John LEAR, of
Nurcoung, and Miss Ruby LEITH, eldest daughter of Mr and Mrs Harry LEITH.
The Rev. Mr MEREDITH, of Horsham, in the unavoidable absence through illness
of the Rev A.C. EDWARDS, of Natimuk, performed the ceremony. The bride, who
was given away by her father, wore a pretty ivory silk Empire coat frock,
stitched with gold, and carried a shower bouquet, made and presented by Mrs
G. LEVITZKE. The bridesmaid, Miss Christina LEITH (sister of the bride),
was attired in a grey crepe-de-chine Empire coat frock, with hat to match.
She carried a shower bouquet, made and presented by Miss DEWAR. The
bridegroom was attended by Mr R.J. McCLURE as best man. The bridal couple
were the recipients of a large number of presents. Amidst a shower of
confetti and good wishes they left Arapiles by the evening train en route
for Ballarat and Melbourne, where the honeymoon is being spent. The brides
going away dress was a navy blue costume, with hat to match. Mr and Mrs
LEAR's future home will be at Mitre Lake.
