A wedding which caused much
interest in city and country social
circles was that of Miss Greta
Sandes, younger daughter of Dr.
and Mrs. F. P. Sandes, of Greta,
Darling Point, to Mr. James Vivers,
younger son of the late Mr. Alan
Vivers and Mrs. M. Vivers, of
Inverell, which took place on Satur-
day evening at St. Mark's, Darling
After a honeymoon tour of the State by
car, Mr. and Mrs. Vivers will make their
home at Nombi, Gunnedah. All three brides-
maids belong to the country. They were Miss
Barbara Lee, of Claremont, Molong; Miss Sue
Russell-Glasson, of Brogia, Walgett; and Miss
Margaret Anderson, of Garrawilla, Gunnedah.
The bridegroom's mother came down from
Inverell for the wedding and she is staying
at the Garden Club.
The beauty of the bride's classic dress of
magnolia satin was heightened by a lovely old
Limerick lace veil that was lent by Mrs. P.
G. White, of Terrigal. The veil was mounted
on magnolia tulle and was caught into a halo
of stiffened tulle at the base of which nestled
orange blossom. The dress was draped in
front, after the Grecian manner, and it had
long tight sleeves and a long wide train
cut into the skirt. The bride carried a sheaf
of magnolias.
A pretty scheme of colouring, which looked
very soft in the artificial light o' the church,
was given by the pastel blue of the brides-
maids' frocks and the rich cream tones worn
by the little flower girl. The bridesmaids'
frocks were of chiflón with full shirred skirts
and circular capes of chiffon with stiff Eliza-
bethan collars. They each carried a trail
of red vclotta lilies and euphorbia, and the
small euphorbia flower was made into gar-
lands for their hair. The little flower girl,
Barbara Vivers, the bridegroom's niece, carried
a posy of stephanotls and had the same cream
flowers in her hair. Her ankle-length frock
was modelled on old world lines in cream net.
Canon Lea officiated at the ceremony, where
the bridegroom was attended by his brother,
-Dayne. MRS. J. VIVERS.
