Wedding Bells


Of Interest to town and country friends was the recent wedding of Valmai, eldest daughter of Mr and Mrs C. F. Oram, Glanfleld Street, Rock-hampton. and Sydney George, eldest son of Mr and Mrs J. S. Yates, Vindex Street, Win-ton.

The ceremony was solemnis-ed at the North Rockhamp-ton Methodist Church by Rev. G. Williams. The bride wore a waltz-length gown of French gui-pure and nylon tulle mounted over stiffened net and taffetas. Her two-tiered veil was held in place by a dainty Juliet cap. Her pretty bouquet was of gladioli, eucharis lilies and Cooktown orchids. For "Something old," the bride wore a ring 100 years old, which was loaned by Mrs H. Johnson. She also wore a bluebird brooch given to her by her father. On leaving the church Valmai was presented with a good luck token by her sister, Claire. The bride's sister, Betty, was bridesmaid and she was attired In a waltz-length gown of blue embroidered nylon. Her shoes, hat and gloves were also In blue toning, and her bouquet was of gladioli, roses and asters.

Mr Don Yates, of Wlnton, was best man to his brother. During the signing of the re- gister Mr B. Dunbavand ren- dered a solo.

The reception held at Anzac House was attended by 100 guests, who were received by the mothers of the happy couple. The toasts were hon-oured under the chairmanship of Mr C. F. Tucker and pride of place was accorded the three-tiered wedding cake made by an aunt of the wide and iced by Mrs Clews. Mr and Mrs Yates spent their honeymoon at Cairns and touring the Atherton Table-land.
