The bride who was given away by her father, wore a pink floral dress, navy swagger coat, navy hat, shoes and gloves, carried a bouquet of pink carnations. She was attended by her sister, Miss Lilian M Howard, who wore blue-grey floral dress, with white hat, shoes and gloves, carried a bouquet of white carnations. Mr Jack Bryden, the bride’s brother-in-law, was the best man.
A reception was held at the bride’s home, and the couple then left for a honeymoon at Clacton-on-Sea, the bride wearing a grey costume with navy accessories.
The bridegroom is employed at Murphy Radio and an oak clock was presented to the bride from her former collegues at Beiersdorf Ltd.”
