    • WEDDING.

      PINKSTONE-SHEATHER

      A pre-war romance, followed by an engagement during the return of the soldier on furlough, was happily consummated by marriage at Christ Church, Cootamundra, on Wednesday afternoon.

      'A quiet wedding,' they said it was to be, yet so many Cootamundraites were interested in the young couple, both natives of the place, that the church was well filled by spectators and well wishers.

      The parties to the life-long contract were Captain Sid Pinkstone, of the 'Daily Express,' Wagga, fourth son of Mr. F. Pinkstone, Cootamundra, retired veteran journalist, and Miss L. Sheather, eldest daughter of Mr. S. Sheather, of Cootamundra.

      The wedding bell was a pretty feature of the decorations, with the intials of the contracting parties on each side of the arch.

      Rev. Norman Gardner, rector, officiated.

      The pretty bride wore a cream gabardine tailored costume, with white angora furs (the gift of the bridegroom), white panne velvet hat, and posey of white hyacinths and maiden hair fern.

      The bridesmaid (sister of the bride) was attired in saxe blue crepe de chene, with trimmings of black velvet and steel beads, black velvet hat, and a posey of' pink carnations and ferns, and wore a gold wristlet watch, the bridegroom 's gift.

      Corporal George Pinkstone was best man.

      Breakfast was afterwards partaken at the Town Hall, where among the decorations was the flag of the bridegroom's old battalion, the 55th, kindly lent by Miss McConaghy, sistor of the lamented Colonel of the regiment.

      Mrs Drew entered.

      A song was nicely rendered by Miss Florrie Mutch.

      A number of friends assembled to see the couple off by the Temora mail in the evening, including some Wagga soldier friends who had motored over for the auspicious occasion.

      The bride 's travelling costume was of saxe blue gabardine with oriental hand embroidery, and a black velvet hat relieved with blue and gold tissue.

      Among the presents received was a handsome oak and silver salad bowl from the officers and men of the Wagga branch of the Returned Sailors and Sol diers' Imperial league.
