      St. Paul's Church of England, Adelong, was the venue of a very pretty wedding on Saturday morning last when Mildred Alma, only daughter of Mr and Mrs. Theo Miller of Sandy Gully, Adelong, made her responses to Dudley Roy, son of Mr. and Mrs. Sheather of Nangus. The church was tastefully decorated by friends of the bride and looked a picture, a fitting setting for a beautiful bride, whose gown was of cream magnolia embossed satin. The conventional '"something borrowed" was the beautiful veil lent by Mrs. C. T. Miller. A bouquet sheaf of gladioli completed the ensemble. In support of the bride was Miss Agnes Miller as bridesmaid, who chose autumn green taffeta for her frock, and Mrs. Stan Keogh was matron of honor, wearing a frock of petunia taffeta. Both ladies curried a sheaf of gladioli. Supporting the groom were Mr. L. Miller, brother of the bride, as best man, and Mr Stan. Keogh as groomsman Miss Neita Crain presided at the organ. At the conclusion of the ceremony the recept tion was held at the home of the brides mother, where Mrs. Theo Mil ler, wearing a navy gown with lace trimmings, assisted by Mrs Alec Sheather, in black and white, received about 80 guests. The Rev B.D.C. Simpson presided at the breakfast, and the following toasts were honored and where necessary, responded to- 'The King' by the Rev. Chairman ; 'The Bride and 'Groom' by Mr. T Smith 'The Bridesmaids' by Mr. D. Shea ther; 'The Parents' by Mr. Don Moon, 'The Rev. Chairman' by Mr A Miller. An additional toast, and one particularly apt, was that of 'The Fighting Forces' by the Rev. Chairman. At the conclusion of the reception the happy young couple departed for Sydney for the honeymoon, the bride choosing a travelling frock of beige pink crepe, with white accessories. Both young people were the recipients of many costly and beautiful presents too numerous to mention but the 'groom's gift to the bride was a wrist-watch, and to the bridesmaids each a bedroom clock. On hehalf of the paper we extend our best wishes to the young couple for future happiness.
