      WEDDINGS.
      Volbrecht-Goodman.
      A wedding which united two families who have been neighbours and well known residents of Lowood for many years took place in St. Brenden's Roman Catholic Church, Lowood, on Saturday morning (writes our correspondent). The parties were Mr. William Frederick Vollbrecht, eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. W. Vollbrecht, sen., and Miss Blanche Agnes Goodman, second eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. Goodman. Rev. Father Murphy officiated. Miss Vonnie Kavanagh presided at the organ, and played the "Wedding March." The church was decorated with vases of chrysanthemums and a beautiful silver lame wedding bell; trimmed with white roses and silver horse-shoes. At the conclusion of the ceremony, a cousin of the bride pulled a horse-shoe attached to a satin streamer and a shower of rice and confetti fell over the bridal party. The bride, who was given away by her father, wore an ankle-length long-sleeved frock of white crepe-de-China, and Chantilly lace. The bodice and skirt showed sunray pin-tuckings. The sleeves were puffed to the elbows with lace mitten cuffs. The skirt was flared with godets of lace, and a plaited girdle was worn. Her handsome veil was of white embroidered tulle, with a coronet of orange blossoms. She carried a bouquet of white roses, arum lilies, and maiden-hair fern, tied with white satin streamers. Miss Kate Goodman, who attended her sister as bridesmaid, chose an ankle-length, long-sleeved frock of lemon georgette and lace. The bodice and skirt showed diagonal pin-tuckings, the sleeves being puffed to the elbows, with tight-fitting lace cuffs. The ankle-length skirt showed Godets of lace. She wore a tight fitting cap of lemon tulle, with trail of small forget-me-nots. Her bouquet was of yellow roses and chrysanthemums, tied with lemon streamers. Misses Sylvia Neuendorf and Dorothy Pointing, little nieces of the bride, attended as flower girls. They were frocked alike in pink crepe-de-Chine, the skirts being composed of frills. They wore caps of pink tulle with trails of tiny flowers, caught over the ears with bebe ribbon. Dorothy Pointing carried a basket of roses, carnations, chrysanthemums, and fern, tied with satin bows, and Sylvia Neuendorf's basket was tied with satin streamers, and filled with rose petals, which she scattered in the bride's path. At the door of the church, she placed a silver horseshoe on the bride's arm. Mr. Herman Schroeder attended as best man. The bouquets and all flowers were the gift of the bride's aunt, Mrs. Hermann, Minden. Mrs. W. Goodman chose a handsome frock of navy morocain, relieved with a vestee of mastic and a hat to match. Mrs. W. Vollbrecht, sen., chose black morocain, relieved with mastic, and a hat of black satin.

      The reception was held at the residence of the bride's parents. The beautiful three-tier wedding cake was made by the bride's mother, and iced by Mrs. D. E. Guthrie. Rev. Father Murphy presided and proposed the toast, "The Bride and Bridegroom." The bridegroom responded and proposed "The Bridesmaid," Mr. Schroeder responding. Cr. J. C. Fitzpatrick proposed "The Parents of the Bride and Bridegroom," and referred to the highest respect felt for both families in the district. Mr. W. Goodman, sen., returned thanks. Cr. Lewis (Chairman of the Esk Shire Council) made complimentary remarks concerning the bridal couple and both families, and proposed the toast, "The Ladies." Cr. W. J. Walters responded. Cr. Lewis proposed "The Chairman," and Rev. Father Murphy responded.

      Immediately after the breakfast, the bridal party motored to Ipswich to be photographed. On return the bride donned a pretty frock of cocoa brown morocain, showing kilted frills of satin on the bodice and sleeves. Her hat was brown glossy straw, with folded crown and a trail of tiny pale pink flowers. Guests at breakfast numbered about 120, and about the same number sat down to tea. Dancing and cards were enjoyed. Music was supplied by Mr. Gablonski (Forest Hill), Mrs. Hermann, and Mr. S. Retschlag. Mr. Norman Harm was M.C.

      All the frocks were the work of Miss Kate Goodman, and the hats were from Bayards'. Many presents were received. Mr. and Mrs. W. Vollbrecht, Jun. are to live at Lowood. [6]
