      The Presbyterian Church, Thirroul, was the scene of a very pretty wedding on June 29th, when Ivy Doris Brown, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. G. Brown, of Lachlan street, Thirroul, was married to Mervyn T. Sheather, eldest son of Mr. and Mrs George Sheather of Nangus, via Gundagai.

      Rev. Torbett officiated.

      The bride's gown was of ivory briral satin with long train cut into skirt and silver girdle. A coronet of orange blossoms held in place her beautiful tulle veil. A shower bouquet of camelia white roses and carnations and fine maiden-hair fern, with streamers of white satin ribbon completed the bridal ensemble.

      The bridegroom's gift to the bride was a white gold wristlet watch.

      Little Miss Raynor Dixon, of Thirroul, was a very pretty flower girl in her ankle-length frock of pale blue crepe-de-chene, with shoes to tone and carrying o gold basket of pink Erica and fine maiden-hair fern, with blue tulle bow.

      The bridegroom's gift to the flower girl was a gold armlet.

      The briedsmaid, Miss Vera Brown, of Goulburn, sister of the bride, looked charming in a frock of matalasse, with silk stripe, trimmed with silver girdle; she carried a bouquet of pink carnations, pink stocks and fine maiden-hair fern, with streamers of pink ribbons.

      The bridegroom's gift to the bridesmaid was a gold wristlet watch.

      Mr. George Brown, of Sydney, brother of the bride, was best man.

      The Wedding March was played by the Church organist, who also contributed various organ solos. The Church was tastefully decorated with arum lilies, roses and asparagus fern, by friends of the bride.

      The reception was held at the bride's home, 'Iolanthe,'' Lachlan street, Thirroul, where the bride's mother received the guests attired in an ensemble of black crinkle crepe and black silk lace, with shoes and hat to tone. She carried a bouquet of red carnations and roses, and maiden hair fern with streamers of red satin ribbon.

      Mr. and Mrs. Sheather left by train for Sydney and Goulburn, the bride travelling in a suite of beige, with brown trimmings, hat and shoes to tone.

      Many useful and valuable gifts were received.

      Mr. and Mrs. Sheather's future home will be at Gundagai.
