      The Organist at All Saints' Church, Parramatta, played bridal preludes and the wedding march at the wedding of Grace, youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Sheather, of Leichhardt, to Lionel, second son of Mr. and Mrs. James Dunstone, of Jervis Bay. Rev. G. F. B. Manning officiated.

      The parents of both the bride and the bridegroom are old identities of Parramatta and great interest was taken in the wedding. Given away by her father, the bride wore a smart bur gundy hat with her gold flecked tailor ed suit, and her Early Victorian posy combined autumn tinted flowers in a setting of cloth of gold.

      Miss Edith Sheather (sister of the bride) attended as bridesmaid, wearing a tailored clover suit with plum accessories.

      The best man was Mr. Charles Dunstone, brother of the bridegroom.

      The reception was held at "McConville," Ross-street, Parramatta, the home of Mr. Stephenson, a relative of the bride, and Mrs. Urchart and Mrs. Taylor, Mr. Stephenson's daughters, as sisted the bride's mother to receive the guests. Mrs. Sheather wore a grey tailored costume with black accesso ries, and added a posy of pink carna tions and cornflowers.

      The bridegroom's mother chose a navy angora ensemble, with a match ing hat.

      The breakfast tables were delightfully decorated with pink and white carnations, and tawny chrysanthemums and Iceland poppies. Mr. Baker (Leichhardt) presided.

      The honeymoon is being spent at Cronulla and Jervis Bay.
