      For her wedding to Mr. Raymond Clark Hobson, at S. John's Church of England, Wellington, recently, Peggy Joan, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. N. E. Sheather, of Dubbo Road, chose a beautiful gown of white lace over satin. The church was artistically decorated by Mesdames D. C. Walker and J. White and the ceremony was performed by Rev. H. A. Graham. Miss Haldane Pickford presided at the organ.

      The bridegroom is the second son of Mr. and Mrs. Harold Hobson, of Wellington.

      The bride looked charming as she entered the church on the arm of her father. Her lace gown was designed on old world lines. The skirt featured a short train, and had a front panel of embroidered tulle frillings from waistline to hemline. The bodice had a heart-shaped neckline and long peaked sleeves. A two-row string of pearls was also worn and a finger tip three-tiered tulle veil, held in position with a coronet of white stocks. In her lovely bouquet the bride carried white lilies, stocks' and maiden hair fern, tied with white satin ribbon.

      The bridesmaids were the bride's sister, Miss Barbara Sheather (chief) and her cousin, Miss Flora Turnbull, of Austinmer. They were charmingly attired in mauve lace and taffet. Old world in style, the taffeta gown, with its tucked panel in the front from waist- line to hemline, was relieved with an overskirt of mauve lace, which fell from the sides only, revealing the tucked panel. They added crownless picture hats of mauve lace and taffeta, trimmed with a taffeta bow at the back, and carried bouquets of mauve stocks, secured with mauve satin ribbon. The single strand pearl necklace each bridesmaid wore was a gift from the bridegroom.

      Suzanne Tucker acted as flower girl. She was prettily dressed to match the brides- maids. Instead of a front panel of tucks Suzanne's frock featur- ed mauve taffeta frills and she carried a gold basket of flowers and wore a bonnet. The present she received from the bride- groom was a gold locket and chain.

      The duties of best man were ably carried out by Mr. Leonard Dray, while the bridegroom's brother, Mr. Harold Hobson, was groomsman.

      The reception was held at the Golden Key, where 80 guests were received by the mothers of the bride and bridegroom.

      Mrs. Sheather wore a fawn gabardine suit, with a pink blouse. Her black hat was trimmed with pink and she attached a shoulder spray of pastel shaded flowers to her suit. She added black accessories. Mrs. Hobson chose a brown frock with brown accessories. Her shoulder spray was in autumn tonings.

      Rev. Graham was chairman and the usual toasts were honoured. He also read the many congratulatory telegrams the happy couple received.

      The bride cut the lovely two tiered cake, iced and decorated in white and made by the Hollywood Cafe.

      The presents to the bride and bridegroom were very beautiful and the array was greatly ad- mired.

      The bridegroom's present to the bride was an eternity ring of yellow gold, with four dia- monds, while the bride's present to the bridegroom was a gold wristlet watch.

      Guests at the wedding included relatives and friends from Wagga and Austinmer, as well as Wellington and surrounding district.

      For travelling Mrs. Hobson selected a grey gabardine suit with tan accessories. Her smart grey hat matched her grey blouse and she also wore a shoulder spray of pink camellias. The honeymoon was spent in Sydney, the happy young couple leaving on the evening train in the presence of a host of friends and well-wishers.

      Mr. and Mrs. Hobson have taken up their residence in Wellington.
