WEDDING REPORT. ANDREWS—SMITH. (Contributed). One of the prettiest weddings celebrated for some time at Wagin took place on Wednesday, Feb. 28th, at St. George's Church, when Miss Ethel Smith (youngest daughter of the late Mrs E and Mr E Smith, of Wedgecarrup), was united in wedlock to Mr H.Andrews (eldest son of Mr H E Andrews, of Norring Lake. The Rev. T E Brewis tied the nuptial knot. As both bride and bridegroom were so well known and respected, a large crowd assembled at the Church. At 6.30 the bride entered the Church on the arm of her father to the strains of "How Welcome was the Call," ably rendered by Alias Temby, The bride looked very sweet gowned in white duchess satin with seed pearl trimmings, finished with an overdress of radium lace, and wearing the orthodox veil and orange blossoms. The toilet was completed by a pretty bouquet of pale pink roses, tiny daisies and asparagus fern, finished with streamers of white satin ribbon. Miss Jeff Smith completed a pretty picture in her lemon jersey silk frock daintily trimmed with silver beads, silk net mop cap with touches of lemon and pearl ornament ; she also carried a bouquet of deep cream roses, rose leaves and fern, caught with white ribbon streamers. Mr Andrews was supported by Mr Harris as best man. After the ceremony the bridal party left the Church to the accompaniment of the "Wedding March." Amid showers of confetti the party then motored out to Wedgecarrup, the bride's late home, where a reception was held. Mrs J Fleay, sister of the bride, received the guests gowned in a very smart frock of cream crepe de chene prettily trimmed with insertion. On arriving at the home, the bridal party entered the hall to the strains of "How Welcome was the Call," played by Miss Abbott a friend of the bride's. After receiving the congratulation, the party adjourned to the dining rooms, where a sumptuous breakfast was provided. A magnificent cake adorned the centre of the table, and reflected great credit of the caterer, Mr Cousins. The table decorations were carried out in pale pink lillies and fern. The usual toasts were honored. Mr Brewis. in a happy speech, proposed "The Bride and Bridegroom," to which the bridegroom suitably responded, and proposed the bridesmaid, the groomsman briefly responding. Mr Le Cornu then proposed "The Parents." Mr lius Smith and Mr Faulkner responding. All toasts were musical, and Mr Brewis, in his usual happy mood, kept the company in ripples of laughter. After the breakfast the guests adjourned to the drawing room, where a pleasant evening was spent with music and song. Some very handsome and useful presents were presented, amongst those being: Bridegroom to bride, magnificent gold dagger brooch set with pearls; and to bridesmaid, pretty and uncommon gold brooch; bride to bridegroom, gold sleeve links. The happy couple left by the early morning train for Perth en route for the caves, where the honeymoon is to be spent. The brides travelling dress was of saxe blue serge, with stitchings to correspond ; saxe blue hat with touches of gold and fruit trimmings.
