    • SHEATHER-BOOTH.

      Miss Lois Booth, who was married to Mr. Douglas Sheather last night, showed originality in her wedding plans by choosing crownless glass hats for her two bridesmaids and little flower girl, and a caravan tour for her honeymoon. The caravan is a trailer, fully equipped, and they will head north.

      The bride is the eldest daughter of Mrs. J. Wentworth Booth, of Mosman, and the bridegroom is the youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. T. B. Sheather, of Mosman.

      The bride chose white angel skin, appliqued with a pattern of silver roses, for her gown, and a long train fell from her waist.

      MRS. DOUGLAS SHEATHER (right), who, before her marriage last night, was Miss Lou Booth, with her bridesmaids, MISSES BETTY and NORMA BOOTH, and flower-girl, MOINA TULLOCH.

      A simple bouquet and a coronet holding in place her tulle veil were of lily-of-the-valley.

      The bridesmaid's frocks of leaf green net, self spotted with silk, featured the same theme of design in the train falling from the waist, and the frock worn by the flower girl, Moina Tulloch, was identical. The bridesmaids were Misses Betty and Norma Booth, sisters of the bride, and they carried cyclamens, which were also scattered on the edge of their trains.

      Mr. Colin Sheather was best man, and Mr. Bruce Dixon was groomsman. Rev. L. A. Purnell officiated at the ceremony, which took place at the Presbyterian Church, Mosman.
