    • WEDDING
      Krebs--Miller
      At St. Stephen's Presbyterian Church, Toowoomba, on January 6th. Captain A. A. Krebs (A.I.F.), second son of Mrs M. Krebs, Palmwoods, and the late Mr. Krebs, was married to Corporal E. M. Miller, A.A.M.W.S., only daughter of Mrs. T. Rooks, Campbell Street. The Rev. N. H. Jougin officiated.

      The bride, who was given away by her grandfather, Mr. G. Ford, senr. (Linthorpe) wore a wedding gown of white silk embossel krinkle crepe over parchment taffeta. Her veil, which was lent by her aunt (Mrs. R. Stower) was softly held in place by a spray of orange blossom. She carried a shower bouquet of lilies of the valley and for "something old" wore a gold brooch, which had been worn by the bridegroom's grandmother on her wedding day. The bridegroom's two sisters, Misses Marie and Brenda Krebs, who attended the bride, were frocked in blue and green hail spot net over satin, respectively. Their tulle veils were caught to the head with trails of pink flowers, and their bouquets were of pink and blue hydrangea, charm dahlias, asters and gladioli. The bridegroom's brother, Mr. H. F. Krebs (Bulimba), was best man, and Mr. E. C. Miller (Linthorpe) groomsman.

      The reception was held at the Cafe Alexandra, where the guests were received by Mrs. T. Rooks (mother of the bride), and later in the evening, guests and intimate friends were entertained at the residence of the bride's aunt (Mrs. T. Vidler).

      The three-tier wedding cake was a gift from the bridegroom's mother. Mrs. Harper (Toowoomba) was responsible for the bouquets. Mrs. J. Kuskopf (Bulimba) for the bride's frock, and Mrs. H. Hobson (Palmwoods) the bridesmaids' frocks.

      The honeymoon was spent at Coolangatta. [6]
