    • CINNABAR WEDDING

      BICK--SEMPF

      The residence of Mr. and Mrs. A Sempf's, the bride's parents, Viewmont, Cinnabar, was the scene of a quiet and pretty wedding on Wednesday, July 4th. The contracting parties were Mr. Harry Bick of Mondure near Murgon and Miss Louise Marie Sempf, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. Sempf, Cinnabar. Rev. Reuther of the Lutheran Church, Murgon, officiated. The sitting room was nicely arranged for the occasion. The bride entered the room on the arm of her father who gave her away. The bride's dress of white georgette over satin, was lavishly embroidered on bodice and skirt, with silver beads and finished at wrist with folded belt of satin and silver roses from which hung tiny bunches of white flowers. Hanging overhead was the wedding bell which had been made and presented by Mrs. and Miss. P. O'Donoghue. Miss Ethel Sempf, sister of the bride, acted as bridesmaid, and was gowned in white georgette over satin. The dress was made in the favourite low waisted style, with new collar of georgette, embroidered in silver beads and finished at waist with swathed belt of georgette and silver rose. Mr. A. Bick, brother of the bridegroom, carried out the duties of best man. Subsequent to the marriage ceremony the party which numbered about 60, consisting of relatives and friends of the bride and bridegroom sat at the table, which was heavily laden with dainty edibles and artistically decorated, the work of Mrs. and Miss P. O'Donogbhue. In the centre of the table stood the three-tier wedding take which was made and presented by Mrs. W. Hogan, of Cloyna, Murgon. The usual toasts were honoured. The bridegroom's gift to the bride was a handsome Morocco bag and the bride's   gift to the bridegroom was a pair of beautiful sleeve links, suitably inscribed. The bridesmaid's gift was a neat gold circle brooch set with an emerald. Numerous and valuable presents and cheques were received. The bride's travelling dress was of navy crepe de chene embroidered in small blue beads and was finished with folded belt of crepe de chene and rose in blue and gold. The bride wore a navy hat to match. The happy couple left by the afternoon train for Scarness where the honeymoon will be spent. [4]
