VIVERS -SANDES WEDDING. 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 Point. 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.
