FASHIONABLE WEDDING AT WHITEHAVEN
 

On Wednesday, the marriage of Mr. Charles Liddell WAUGH, of  Pontycymmere,
South Wales, second son of Mr. Edward Waugh, M. P., of The  Burrows, Papcastle,
Cockermouth, and Ada Mary, only daughter of Mr. I’ANSON, M.  D., Whitehaven,
was solemnised at St. Nicholas Church, Whitehaven. The church  was crowded. The
ceremony was performed by the Rev. J. T. POLLOCK, B. A., vicar  of Brigham,
assisted by the Rev. C. B. S. GELLINGS, B. A., Vicar of St.  Nicholas,
Whitehaven, and the Rev. Canon DALTON, B. D., vicar of Holy Trinity  Church,
Whitehaven.
 
 The bride was given away by her father, whilst Mr. E. L. WAUGH,  brother to
the bridegroom, acted as best man. The bride’s dress was composed of  white
satin and brocade, with a long tulle veil fastened with pearl pins, the  gift of
her aunt, Miss. I’ANSON. The bride also wore a pearl and diamond broosh,  the
gift of the bridegroom, and was attended by the following ladies as her

the bridegroom.
 
 During the service which was choral, the choir sang, “The voice which  
breathed o’er Eden,” and “The church’s one foundation.” At the conclusion of the  
service Canon DALTON addressed a few admonitory and congratulatory words to
the  newly married pair.
 
 The “Wedding March” was played by Mr. IRELAND as the party left the
