... 9 March 1916 - WEDDING, ASH-DEVENPORT
A pretty wedding was solemnised at mid-day in Knox Church, Masterton, when Miss Ethel Ensa Devenport, eighth daughter of Mr and Mrs G. H. Devenport, of Upper Plain, was married to Mr James Andrew Ash, of Wellington. The Rev G. T. Brown was the officiating minister. The bride looked charming in a costume of white crepe-de-chine, with a white hat. She carried a shower bouquet. The chief bridesmaid was Miss Mabel Devenport, sister of the bride, who wore a white hailstone muslin costume and a white hat trmmed with pink roses. The other bridesmaid was Miss Ethel Ramsey, neice of the bride, and her costume was a white voile with white hat trimmed with pink roses. Mr Charles Devenport was best man, and Mr William Ash groomsman

I just stumbled upon this page....These are my great grandparents, their son George Errol Ash was my grandfather.
They are both 'buried' in Karori Cemetery in Wellington, New Zealand.
I say 'buried' as its a wall plaque for cremations, and their son George's remains were interred there when he passed as well.
