    • WEDDING.
      The marriage of Miss Ivy Verrall, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. Verrall, "Prospect Hill," Walloon, and  Mr. Ivan Sankowsky, second son of the late Mr. and Mrs. C. Sankowsky, Bundaberg, took place in the Presbyterian Church, Bundaberg, on October 14. Rev. W. C. R. Moore officiated. The bride, who, in the absence of her father, was given away by her uncle, Mr. A. Thygesen, wore a trained frock of ivory bridal satin. The bodice featured a soft cowl neck-line, with an applique spray, worked in gold metal thread on each side of the front and down the sleeve to the elbow. The back of the bodice was neatly buttoned to the waist. The full swing skirt, with a train, fell gracefully in heavy folds. A top-knot of orange blossom made an effective finish to the beautifully hand-embroidered tulle veil lent by a friend, Mrs. Mervyn Richardson. The bridal bouquet was made up of statice, fern, roses, and carnations. The only ornament the bride wore was a string of pearls, the gift of Mrs. W. G. Gibson, Ascot. Miss Freda Ziemer was bridesmaid, and was daintily frocked in heaven blue taffeta, featuring a gathered blouse into a wide waist-band with edgings of neat pleatings. The V-shaped neck-line was edged with pleating, and the sleeves were fully puffed. The skirt was beautifully cut in a full swing effect, and fell into a small train, which was cutely formed by narrow pleating in the centre back. She carried a contrasting bouquet of pink roses and carnations, and wore a short veil and coronet of carnations. The little flower girl, Joan Thygesen (cousin), wore a delicate frock of lemon organdi over taffeta, with pin-tucked bodice and fully-puffed sleeves. The skirt was machine-smocked into the waist and pleated horse-shoes, with little blue bows, added a unique trimming. She wore a tulle bow of blue in her hair and carried a basket of blue daisies. Mr. E. Sankowsky (brother) was best man. Owing to the distance of the bride's parents and home, the reception was arranged by the bride's aunt, Mrs. A. Thygesen, who made and presented a beautifully-iced cake. Mrs. Sankowsky wore a smart ensemble for her travelling frock. Mr. and Mrs. Sankowsky will make their home at Berrembea, Wallavllle line.
