      At Merewether Central Methodist Church, on Saturday, September 14, the wedding was celebrated between Louise Blanche, fourth daughter of Mr. C. H. Sheather of Harrington, Manning River, and Leslie James, eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. W. Tennant, of Elliot-street. Merewether. Rev. W. Jenkins performed the ceremony. The church was decorated in real orange blossom and arum lily. Appropriate music was supplied by the Austral Concert Band, conducted by Mr. G. Richards. Mr. A. Charlton was organist, and Mrs. W. Tennant, jun., sang.

      The bride, who was given away by her father, looked charming in her gown of ivory satin, moulded to the figure and flaring in a long train. A cowl neckline and full sleeves to the elbow were featured. An embroidered net veil mounted an underveil of cut tulle flowed in billowy clouds from a coronet of orange blossom. A sheaf of arum lily and cream orchid was carried by the bride.

      Miss Winn Tennant and Miss Chris Lorger, of Stockton, were bridesmaids. They were attractively gowned in del phinium blue taffeta, trimmed with frills and silver lame, with silver hats and shoes to match. They carried bouquets of pink stock. Marjorie Sheather and Judith Lingard (nieces of the bride and bride groom), were flower girls. They wore dainty gowns of pink taffeta with puffed sleeves and silver halos, and carried baskets of sweetpea. Mr. W. A. Tennant and Mr. J. Lewis were best man and groomsman respectively.

      Following the ceremnony, a reception was held at the Blue Room Cafe. Mrs. C. Simmonds (sister of the bride), in pale blue figured crepe-de-Chine with a white picture hat, received the guests. Her posy was of pink sweetpea. Mrs. Tennant, sen. looked smart in black crepe-de-Chine, and picture hat. She carried a posy of golden marigold.

      When leaving for the honeymoon, which is being spent in North Queensland, the bride wore a royal blue matelasse frock with hat and shoes to match. Mr. and Mrs. Tennant will reside in Merewether.
