... An extremely pretty wedding was celebrated at St Peter's Church on Wednesday, 22nd of July, when Miss M. Urwin, daughter of Mr T. A. Urwin, of this city, was married to Mr C. A Goldsmith, of the Public Trust Department. There was a large attendance of friends at the service, which was conducted by the Rev G. P. Davy.
The bride looked exceedingly nice in a handsome trained white satin gown. The bodice was elaborately tucked, and had a transparent yoke of silver sequin net. A tulle veil and orange blossom wreath completed the costume. She also wore a gold chain necklet, with a greenstone heart attached, the gift of the bridegroom.
The bride was attended by five bridesmaids: The Misses B. Urwin (sister Blanche), and Miss J. Armstrong, who were attired in very becoming gowns of white and frilled skirts. Their hats were also very pretty, being made of white tucked chiffon, and they carried bouquets of scarlet flowers and lycopodium.
Their gifts from the bridegroom were a cable bangle to the chief maid, and a pretty gold chain and penant to Miss Armstrong.
The younger maids, the Misses J. Hall, Rene Rosenberg, and Zita Casey, formed a picturesque trio, in quaint white silk frocks, large picture hats, and white crooks, tied with beautiful roses. They also received pretty gifts from the bridegroom, in the form of gold brooches.
Mr J. Masters acted as best man, and Messrs W. Urwin and E. Carde as groomsmen.

Mrs Urwin, the bride's mother, and Mrs Goldsmith, mother of the bridegroom, both wore very handsome black costumes.
After the ceremony, the guests were entertained at the residence of the bride's parents, where good wishes for health and prosperity were expressed.

The wedding presents were costly and numerous. Amongst them was a handsome cheque from the fellow clerks of the groom in the Public Trust Department.
