WEDDING REPORT. BECKER—WILSON. On Wednesday, September 12, 1928, a wedding of unusual interest was celebrated in the Woodanilling Church, at 7.15 p.m., the contracting parties being Miss Blanche Wilson, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wilson of Woodanilling, and Mr. Harold William Herbert Becker, eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. C. W. R. Becker of Woodanilling. The Rev. Thrum, of the Presbyterian Church, Katanning, conducted the service. The bride made a charming picture as she entered the church on the arm of her father, and attended by Misses Rita Becker, Stella Severin and Gladys Wilson as bridesmaids. The bridegroom was attended by his brother, Mr. Albert Becker, as best man. The church was crowded to overflowing with the numerous friends of the happy couple. After the nuptial knot had been tied, over two hundred guests were received by Mrs. Wilson and Mrs. Becker at the Town Hall, where they were seated to a very elaborate breakfast. The Rev. Thrum, after the toast to the King, proposed the Health of the Bridal Couple: In doing so he expressed the general sentiment of all who knew the bride by saying that she was loved by all who were fortunate enough to know her, for the simple reason that no one could help loving one with such a splendid unselfish nature, and he was glad that the bride had the good fortune to choose a worthy partner. The bridegroom suitably responded and proposed the Health of the Bridesmaids, to which the best man responded. The toast of the Parents of the Bride was entrusted to the capable hands of Mr. Carter, while the Parents of the Bridegroom was given by Mr. M. E. Kealley, Mr. Wilson responding on behalf of his wife and himself, took the opportunity to thank the many friends who had assisted with the arrangements. Mr. Becker also responded on behalf of his wife and himself. The bridegroom proposed the Health of the officiating clergyman which was responded to by that gentleman. A pleasant feature during the intervals in the Toast List was songs very nicely rendered by Mrs. C. Ratcliffe. Miss E. Bell and Miss Mitchell. After the wedding cake had been cut and handed around, the guests rose, and as if by magic, the tables were removed from the hall, and dancing indulged in till midnight, when the happy couple left by train to spend their honeymoon in Perth. An exceptionally fine lot of wedding presents were received by the bride, including many valuable cheques and numerous congratulatory telegrams. The bride wore ivory georgette trimmed with silver lace, and bands of satin, with a veil of white tulle, and carried a bouquet of lillies. Miss Rita Becker was dressed in pink georgette trimmed with silver lace, and carried a bouquet of pink peas. Miss Stella Severin wore heliotrope georgette trimmed with silver lace, with a bouquet of mauve sweet peas; Miss Gladys Wilson wore blue georgette trimmed with silver lace, with a bouquet of blue sweet peas. The bride travelled in saxe blue crepe de chene, with shoes and hat to match and a bois de rose velour coat.
