      BELLS OF ST. ANDREW'S
      Rector Rings Wedding Peal
      The bride's penchant for a quiet wedding led to a ceremony in a little country church yesterday afternoon, but in order that friends might participate in the happy event a reception, at which some 100 guests were entertained, was held later in the evening.
      It was in St. Andrew's Church of England, Carrick, the Rev. C. L. H. Cox officiating, that Engell Irene, youngest daughter of Mrs. W. Holyman, "Carysville," High-street, Launceston, and the late Captain W. Holyman, wedded with Donald, youngest son of Mrs. A. Atkins, Hobart, and the late Mr. Atkins. There was no music, and the church was unadorned, but as the bride and bridegroom walked down the pathway from the church the rector rang a peal of bells.
      The bride looked most attractive in a tailored ensemble of wine and beige wool de Chine, with which she wore a wine-coloured felt hat. The bridesmaids were Miss Mona Holyman (cousin of the bride) and Miss Gertie Atkins (sister of the bridegroom). Miss Holyman's costume of blue wool de Chine was relieved with a blouse of white satin. She wore a blue Bangkok hat, and a scarf to tone. Miss Atkins wore a fawn wool de Chine ensemble, with a small brown hat. The bride's brother, Captain Ivan Holyman, gave her away. The bridegroom was attended by Mr. H. McEachern (best man), and Mr. W. Holyman (brother of the bride) groomsman.
      Only members of both families were present. The bride's mother wore a frock of Burgundy crepe de Chine beneath her black coat, and a black panamalaque hat trimmed with black and white feather osprey, while Mrs. Atkins (bridegroom's mother) was attired in a black tailored costume, with hat to match.
      RECEPTION AT "CARYSVILLE"
      For the reception and wedding tea at "Carysville" at 7 o'clock, the vestibule, where the bride and bridegroom received congratulations, and the dining hall were massively decorated with the choicest spring flowers. Over the bride's place, at the long central table, hung a floral wedding bell. On the tables themselves low specimen glasses filled with primroses, Neapolitan violets, and primroses, interspersed the tall vases, from which sprayed pink carnations, fresias, and flowering peach. Each guests's place was indicated by a pink artificial flower, to which the name card was attached.
      The mantleshelf was a bower of pink peach blossom, and the fireplace recess was filled in with tender green ferns and palms. The delightful decorations were the scheme of Mrs. Vaudrey Robinson.
      A three-decker wedding cake was a most attractive feature of the bride's table. It was made by the mother of the bridegroom, and iced by his sister.
      The bride made a lovely picture in a softly flowing frock of peach pink georgette. The skirt just escaped the floor with a deep hem fastened here and there with a "dew-drop" of diamante, and the narrow waist belt clasped in front with a double diamante buckle. Over the frock, which was sleeveless, was worn a hip length coatee embossed at the edges with pink and silver beads. The triple rows of a crystal necklace nestled in the cowl drapery of the bodice, and through the bride's dark hair twined a band of diamante finishing with a cluster of pink rosebuds. Her Victorian posy consisted of forget-me-nots, pink rosebuds, and pink hyacinths, with a fall of many narrow pink ribbon streamers.
      The bride's attendants were also seen in charming evening ensembles at the reception. Miss Holyman's gown of shrimp georgette was inlet with points of silver lame, and she wore with it a waisted lame coatee. Bands of beige georgette formed an insertion to Miss Atkins' frock of beige lace, and her coatee in leaf design of chenille embossed georgette, introducing a touch of flame colour, was trimmed with beige fur.
      Mrs. Holyman, who received the guests, wore a Parisian frock of black georgette gorgeously embroidered in multi-coloured silks, and revealing godets of fine black lace let in with gold stitching. She held a posy of pansies, rosebuds, violets, and maiden-hair fern looped with narrow gold ribbon.
      Mrs. Atkins' robe of black georgette was relieved with white, and had a touch of ermine trimmings. She carried a posy of delicate mauve orchids.
      Later, the bride and bridegroom left for their honeymoon, which will be spent at Scamander. The bride travelled in a suit of blue checked frisca, and a small straw hat to match. The future home is in Launceston.
      Among the wedding presents was a copper and crystal fruit stand presented by the staff of K. D. Atkins and Co.
      The bouquets were from J. H. Taylor Pty., Brisbane-street. Miss May Shields, "The Gorge" tearooms, catered for the wedding tea. [3]
