    • WEDDING BELLS 

      WENCK-FLINT

      At 8 a.m. on December 26, at St Vincent's Church, Wandal, a very pretty wedding was solemnised with Nuptial Mass, when Victor Laurie, eldest son of Mr and Mrs J. Wenck, Jambin, was married to Dorothy May, eldest daughter of Mr and Mrs J. Flint, James Street, Wandal. The Very Rev. Father J. Robinson, CM., officiated.

      The bride, who entered the church with her father to the strains of the Wedding March played by Miss Mary Kerrigan, was frocked in ivory satin richly embroidered and featuring a long train. Her beautiful veil of pale green tulle, with a halo of satin flowers, was worked with true lovers' knots and satin flowers. She carried a bouquet of pink and white roses tied with white satin ribbon.

      The bride was attended by four bridesmaids and two flower girls. The two chief bridesmaids, Misses Joan Meyers and Shirley Flint, wore pink taffeta frocks featuring shirred bodices and full puffed sleeves and fully flared skirts, hand-painted in shades of red and blue. The other bridesmaids, Misses Nellie and Evelyn Wenck, sisters of the bridegroom, wore blue taffeta frocks hand-painted in mauve and lavender. The bridesmaids wore floral crinoline straw hats to match and carried baskets of roses and maidenhair fern tied with satin streamers. The two flower girls, Elaine Steele and Evelyn Flint, wore long green frilled satin frocks with picoted edges and Early Victorian bonnets. They carried baskets of roses and maidenhair fern tied with bows and satin streamers. The bridegroom's gift to the bride was a wristlet watch and to the bridesmaids gold crosses and chains. The bride's gift to the bridegroom was a wallet.
        
      The duties of best man were carried out by the bridegroom's brother, Mr John Wenck, and the bride's brother, Mr Kenneth Flint, was groomsman. During the signing of the register an Ave Maria was sung by Mrs Tait.

      The reception was held at the home of the bride's parents, where the bride's mother received over 50 guests. Her dusty pink British crepe gown was embroidered in blue tonings with a hat to match and she carried a bouquet in cyclamen tonings. The bridegroom's mother wore a powder blue gown with a hat to match, and she carried an autumn-tinted bouquet. The decorations were carried out in the bridesmaids' colours by friends of the bride. The three-tiered cake was made by the bride's mother and iced on a cream ground with red roses, with a miniature bride on the top dressed in a similar fashion to the bride.

      The bridal couple left for Bundaberg, where the honeymoon was spent. The bride travelled in a navy coat and skirt with white accessories. [6, 7, 8]
