J. (Richard James 1847-1911) TREWAVAS, chemist (Motueka)
The Rev. T. JOHNSTON, of Motueka, officiated.
The bride was given away by her eldest brother, William.
She looked charming in her pretty dress of pale biscuit colour, trimmed with silk and lace, she was also wearing the usual wreath and veil of orange blossoms, and carried a pretty shower bouguet, the gift of the bridegroom.
Mr H. O. (Herbert Oscar 1872-1941) Livick acted as best man, the chief bridesmaid being Miss Maggie Trewavas (Margaret born 1877), sister of the bridegroom, who looked very pretty in a brown costume trimmed with blue silk.
The bridegroom's gift to the bride was a handsome gold-mounted bangle, while the bride's gift to the bridegroom was a silver mounted walking stick. The bridgesmaid's present was a gold-mounted greenstone brooch.
The presents were numerous and costly, including a piano from the bride's mother.
