Father Hunt officiated at the wedding, for which Miss Fay Guivarra provided organ music. During the signing of the register the bride's aunt Miss Mary Wright gave a delightful rendition of Ave Maria. The bride an attractive brunette was escorted to the altar by her father. Her gown, was a lovely creation of cobweb fine lace and tulle, mounted on a glistening satin underdress, and fashioned redingnote style. Tiny buttons extended from the front of the high shaped neck line deep into the skirt; and where they ended the skirt opened out in scallop-effect to introduce a froth of tulle. The lovely skirt was superbly cut and swept Into a long train. The long lace sleeves were closely buttoned at the wrists and little nylon gloves were allied. Sprigs of orange blossoms adorned her lace juliet cap which held in place the veil of filmy tulle. White satin ribbons tied the bouquet of gerberas and white roses. Misses Doreen Andersen and Grace Burgess attended the bride, and were frocked in similarly styled gowns of blue and pink patterned organdi. The fitted bodices were attractively tucked and this trim was again shown on the fully flared skirts. The tucks were placed in U shape over the hips and gave the effect of pockets which held little red posies. The red flowers were again used to offset their tiny straw curvettes of blue and pink respectively. The girls carried Victorian posies comprising dark red blooms, and wore unusual shirred mittens of organdi. Mr. Jack King was best man. and Mr. Andrew Pepper groomsman. The reception was held at the R.A.O.B . hall, and a very large gathering of friends was welcomed by the bride's mother, assisted by Mrs. Anderson. 'The hall had been decorated for the occasion by the bride's brother and sister-in-law Mr. and Mrs. Owen Wright. Main feature of the decorations was the arch and bell made by Mrs. A. Smyth, and Miss June Sultana. The bell was suspended above the bridal couple's place at table, and a special ceremony took place when each bridesmaid pulled a streamer and released a shower of confetti. Mr. H. Millard acted as chairmnan and the usual toasts were honored. The lovely three-tiered wedding cake was made by Mrs. Anderson and iced by Mrs. S. Williams. Mrs. Williams was also responsible for the bouquets carried by the bride and maids. Musical items were presented by Mrs. S. Cabin, Miss Dorothy Hunt, Messrs Brian Cahill, George Wright, Malcolm Cochrane, John Tierney and Mr. and Mrs. Norm Porter. Special guests at the wedding included: — Mr. and Mrs. O. Wright and Mrs. Armit (Townsville) Mrs. Ted Gray (Ayr), Mrs. F. Dudley (Mareeba) Mrs, D. Dudley (Cairns) Mr. and Mrs. Don Anderson (Cairns), Mr. and Mrs. B. Beck (Kairi) Mrs. Bryant Mareeba).

A white hat and accessories were worn. The bride's gift to the groom was a gemset signet ring and he reciprocated with a travelling set. The bridesmaids each received an attractive piece of jewellery Numerous gifts and cheques were received by the young couple Mr. and Mrs. Anderson left, by train after the wedding, enroute to Brisbane, where they, will honeymoon.
