PRETTY WEDDING AT MOOR ROW.
Last Wednesday week a pretty wedding was solemnised at the Wesleyan Church, Whitehaven, by the Rev. J. H. CARTWRIGHT, when Mr. Harry STEWART, only son of Mrs. STEWART, Station-terrace, Moor Row, was married to Miss. Janet PHILLIPS, eldest daughter of Mr. And Mrs. R. PHILLIPS, of the same village.
The bride having been a highly respected employee of Mr. J. STOUT, of Egremont, he very kindly lent two motor cars in which the wedding party were motored to and from the church. The bride was given away by her father, the duties of the best man and groomsman being carried out by Mr. G. SALKELD, Distington and the bride’s brother, Mr. W. R. PHILLIPS, respectively.
The bride was charmingly attired in a dress of cream silk eolienne over lace, with a spray of orange blossom, with a hat to match, and also wore a spray of white heather, the gift of Mrs. Hope JOHNSTON, of Moffat.
The three bridesmaids were Miss. Mamie, Miss. Josephine and Miss. Nora, sisters of the bride, each of whom wore white muslin dresses with pink sashes, the eldest wearing a black hat, with white silk lining and the two youngest wore white hats with pink flowers. The bride and bridesmaids each carried bouquets of lilies and roses and wore gold pendants, the gift of the bridegroom. The bride’s gift to the bridegroom was a pair of gold sleeve links.
The wedding breakfast was partaken of in the Public Hall. The Rev. J. H. CARTWRIGHT was present and in a few well chosen remarks wished the bride and bridegroom much happiness. The bride’s cake was a gift of Miss. DOBIE, Hensingham, aunt of the bride.
A reception followed, when upwards of 100 guests were present. The newly married couple motored to Whitehaven in the evening, and took the train to Edinburgh, where the honeymoon is being spent. The bride’s travelling costume was navy serge, with black hat. They were the recipients of a large number of valuable presents.
