    • RECENT BRIDES

      Mrs. BERNARD WENCK, who was married at St. James' Cathedral. The bride was formerly Miss Shirley Glindemann, only daughter or Mr. and Mrs. A. E. Glindemann.

      Five bridesmaids in bouffant pastel shaded gowns provided a rainbow of colour for the wedding last Saturday of Shirley Dawn, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. E. Glindeman, Hopkins Street, Currajong, and Bernard Clarence, second eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. C. Wenck, Charters Towers Road, Hermit Park. Mr. Glindeman gave his daughter away at the ceremony which took place in the afternoon at St. James' Cathedral. Exquisite white imported Chantilly lace made an enchanting wedding gown for the bride. The skirt raying-out to an enormous hemline concluding in a sweeping train was crinolined by its ruffled tulle pettiskirt surmounting a slipper satin foundation. The bodice was carefully designed so that the self-scalloped edge of the delicate fabric outlined the neckline which was cut high at the back and plunged to a moderate V in front where it was trimmed with tiny buttons to the nipped-in waist-line. This motif also put the finishing touch to the long tailored sleeves culminating in points past wrist length. A coronet of opalescent pearl orange blossoms caught the bride's embroidered tulle veil which tipped the fingers in front and softly flowed to floor length at the rear. A lovely asset for the bridal ensemble was a trailing bouquet of white velvet handmade roses and orchids showing just a tiny touch of pastel pink and interlaced with silver sleeves. Sharing the bridesmaiding honours were Misses Pat Lewis, Maureen Golden, Beryl Sinclair, Fay Shambrook, and junior miss, Gall Bower (cousin of the bride). Their picture gowns of nylon organza crisped with toning taffetas were featured in pastel blue, green lemon, mauve and pink, respectively. A vertical panel of graduating frothy frills, stretching from waist to hem line was constructed into the centre front of the skirts which were teamed with a figure-moulding bodice, dropping to a peak in front and portraying a sweetheart neck line. The brief sleeves were puffed. Each 'maid perfectly matched her gown by long mittens and a skull-cap of miniature velvet leaves which had a shoulder length embroidered tulle veil to finish it. All five carried beautiful bouquets to merge into their different colour schemes. The 'groom was attended by Mr. Adrian Peters (best man) and 'groomsmen, Messrs . Vivian Wenck (brother of groom), Reid Anderson, Kevin Breen and Leslie Bower (cousin of the bride). Over 300 guests attended the reception held at the Exhibition Hall. The bride's mother received them in a coffee shaded Chantilly lace frock shown to advantage with its pink satin underlay which matched up to the colour of her accessories. The groom's mother added cherry-red accessories to offset her lime green crepes. The newly-weds will take up residence here at Bowen Road. [5, 6]
