    • WEDDINGS

      Colston -- Spiller

      The marriage of Mr. Arthur Hugh Fraser Colston (eldest son of the late Mr. and Mrs. A. Colston) and Miss Rose May Spiller (eldest daughter of Mr. and  Mrs. W. A. J. Spiller, Goomeri) took place in the Church of Christ, Kingaroy, on September 25. Pastor R. W. Payne officiated. Miss Thelma Payne was at the organ, and a vocal solo was given by Mrs. A. F. Davis. The bride, who was given away by her father, wore a trained gown of white crepe satin, with a Brussells net veil mounted on tulle. She carried white flowers. Green floral georgette, with cascading frills, was the choice of Misses Mary Henderson and Ruby Ellis, who were the bridesmaids. Their leghorn picture hats featured field flower trimmings, and they carried pink sweet peas and cream roses. The little Misses O. Splller and Beryl McIndoe were flower girls. Mr. R. Gallagher was best man, and Mr. Harold Spiller was the groomsman. On leaving for the honeymoon, which is being spent in Brisbane, Mrs. A. H. F. Colston wore navy crepe de Chine, with a hat to harmonise. [7]
