    • WEDDINGS.
      Denman-Higgins.
      St. Aidan's Church of England was the scene of a very pretty wedding, the parties being Mr. Edward Denman, elder son of Mr. and Mrs. W. T. Denman, Mutdapilly, and Miss Louisa May Higgins, only daughter of Mr. C. J. and the late Mrs. Higgins, Fordsdale. Rev. J. D. Anderson officiated. As the bride entered the church on the arm of Mr. Brimble (an old friend of the bride), who gave her away, the congregation sang "The Voice That Breathed O'er Eden." She wore a frock of ivory crepe-de-Chine, inset with lace, with hat to match, and carried a bouquet of white roses, daisies, and bridal fern. Miss Cecilia Wagner, niece of the bride, attended as bridesmaid, wearing a frock of pale blue crepe-de-Chine, relieved with white pleating and hat to tone. She carried a bouquet of gerberas and bridal fern. Mr. C. P. Denman (brother of the bridegroom) was best man. After the ceremony Rev. Anderson sang "Because." Mrs. Alexander presided at the organ.

      The reception was held at the home of the bridegroom's parents, the verandah being decorated with foliage and rainbow-coloured streamers. The decorating had been supervised by Mrs. W. Morrow, aunt of the bridegroom. At night about 60 friends of the happy couple assembled at a euchre tournament and card party. Mr. W. Salmon supervised. A valuable trophy was presented by Mr. G. Clem, Ipswich, the winner being Mrs. F. Schafferius, Ingoldsby. Among the guests were the bridegroom's 78-year-old grandparents. [4]
