    • WEDDING.
      Claydon-Wenck.
      A pretty but quiet wedding was solemnised at Tallegalla Methodist Church, by Rev. T. J. Graham Wilson, on Saturday, October 20, the parties being W. George Claydon, eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. W. Claydon, Rosewood, and Sylvia, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. Wenck, Coolana. The bride, who entered the church on the arm of her father, who gave her away, was gracefully attired in a white crepe-de-Chine frock, made on long classical lines, the bodice being prettily pin-tucked, with hand-made faggotted yoke, and two shoulder capes over long, tight- fitting sleeves. Her wreath was worn cap fashion and was composed of orange blossoms, pearls, and silver tulle, from which her veil hung in long graceful folds. She also carried a beautiful sheaf of Arum lilies, with long trail of fern, tied with tulle and satin streamers. As the bride left the church little Elva Yarrow presented her with a horse shoe, the work of Miss G. Brooks, She was attended by Miss Dolly Claydon as bridesmaid, who wore a powder blue glory crepe frock, ankle length, with two frills on the skirt and bodice, with hat to match. She also carried a lovely sheaf of pink gladioli and fern and wore a string of crystal beads, the gift of the bridegroom.
      Mr. H. Claydon, brother of the bridegroom, attended as best man.
      The bride's gift to the bridegroom was a wallet, and the bridegroom's gift to the bride was a pin-grained handbag. The best man received a set of sleeve links and studs.
      The wedding breakfast was held at the residence of Mrs. W. Claydon, Rosewood, and the party on arrival was received by Mrs. W. Claydon. The room was nicely arranged with ferns and flowers and a beautiful two-tiered wedding cake adorned the bride's table, the cake being the work of the bridesmaid.
      Rev. Graham Wilson occupied the chair and the usual toasts were honoured.
      After the wedding breakfast Mr. and Mrs. G. Claydon left on a motoring tour to Burleigh Heads and parts of New South Wales, the bride travelling in a saxe blue crepe cotele, with mastic pleatings of georgette with mastic hat to tone. The bride's frocks were the work of the Grace Saloon, Ipswich, and the bridal bouquets were the work of Mrs. C. Rose. Gladstone. Mr. and Mrs. G. Claydon are to live at Rosewood. [4]
