Practically a double wedding, both sisters being married within the hour, was celebrated on Tuesday afternoon, at St. Joseph's Church, Grey Lynn, when Else Muriel Agnew, fourth daughter of Mrs. Agnew, Northcote Street, Grey Lynn, became the wife of Arthur Woods, eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. Woods, of Summer Street, Ponsonby. The bride wore an orchid mauve georgette, the skirt being pleated, and having a silver bodice. Round the waist were placed silver rosebuds. The beautiful worked tulle veil was of mauve, with silver and mauve flowers embossed. The bouquet was of lavender and pink flowers-with silver streamers. Miss Gladys Jones, as bridesmaid, was in peach georgette. The latest autumn mode of hat was worn. It was very small, with the tight coq feather trimming surrounding the crown. The bouquet and hat matched the frock. The best man was Mr. Vincent Woods.

At the next wedding Sybil Evelyn, the youngest daughter, became the wife of Thomas Frost, eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. G. Frost, of Hamilton. The beautiful gown was of flesh pink georgette, worn over satin. The skirt being vandycked in deep silved lace. Handkerchief draperies fell from the waist line and were finished with silver roses. The tulle veil, which formed the train, was in pale pink, and worked in silver flowers. Trellised coronets of orange blossom held both veils in place. The shower bouquet was pink roses and carnations, with silver ribbons. Miss Ivy Woods was the bridesmaid. Her gown was torquoise blue crepe de chine trimmed in gold lace, with small blue hat with a tight feather surround, and she carried a blue and pink bouquet. Both brides were given away by their eldest brother, Mr. Harold Agnew. Mr. Roy Agnew was best man. Father Holbrook officiated at both ceremonies.
