Jackwitz (Lowood), and Mr. William Henry Albert Goodman, only son of Mr. William Goodman and the late Mrs. Goodman, Lowood, took place at the Minden Baptist Manse shortly after noon on Saturday. Pastor Frewin officiated. The bride chose a street length saxe blue crepe frock, featuring a tunic effect, with wide folded tucks on the sleeves and bodice, and beading on the collar. She also wore a white hat, and carried a white handbag. Her accessories were white. She was attended by her sister, Mrs. F. Schulz, as matron of honour, who chose a street length frock of blue dull crepe, with navy hat and accessories. Mr. Herbert Jackwitz, brother of the bride, was best man. After the ceremony the bridal party motored to Ipswich to be photographed. The wedding breakfast was served on the spacious verandahs of the residence of the bridegroom's brother-in-law and sister, Mr. and Mrs. W. Vollbrecht. Streamers and garlands of antignon helped to brighten the enclosure. On the tables were vases of zinnias, dahlias, and gerberas. A two-tier wedding cake, made by the bridegroom's sister, Mrs. A. Neuendorf, and iced by Mrs. L. Schmunck, was placed on the bridal table. About 60 guests were entertained. The bride's mother, who will be 70 years old in August, was present.
