    • KREBS-WITHAM.

      The marriage of Mr. Edward Krebs (youngest son of Mrs. Krebs and the late Mr. Krebs of Southport) and Miss Gwendoline Witham (second daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. J. A. N. Witham Colenso, Buranda) was celebrated by the Rev. R. B. Massey, at the Holy Trinity Church, Hawthorn-street, on July 31. The bride, who was given away by her father, wore a frock of ivory mariette over silk, made with panels of point lace, embossed with silver roses, and adorned with silver ribbons falling from the shoulder to the waist. The bridal veil was worn in cap fashion, with a full wreath of orange blossoms. She carried a bouquet of eucharist lilies and snowdrops. Miss Connie Witham (sister of the bride), who attended as bridesmaid, was frocked in lavender mariette, showing touches of silver, and her crinoline hat was caught up with a large rose. Mr. Leslie Witham (the bride's brother) carried out the duties of best man. After the ceremony, Mr. and Mrs. Witham entertained their guests at Webster's Cafe Majestic. [5]
