SCHISCHKA-SCHOLLUM.

Kotiti. The Rev Father Meagher officiated. The bride entered the church on her father's arm and looked charming in a pretty gown of grey silk voile, trimmed with silk and beautiful creme lace and insertion to match. She wore a white hat, trimmed with beautiful ostrich plumes. The attendant bridesmaid was Miss Maggie Schollum, who wore a lovely grey dress, trimmed with lace and elbow sleeves and wore a white hat, trimmed with beautiful ostrich plumes. Mr Lenord Schischka acted as best man. The bridegroom's gift to the bride was a lovely gold muff chain, and to the bridesmaid a gold bangle and two gold brooches. Both bride and bridesmaid carried lovely bouquets. As the bridal party were leaving the church amidst showers of rice, Miss Donovan of Helensville, rendered the Wedding march. After the ceremony the guests left for the Puhoi Hotel (the bride's sister's residence), where a sumptuous wedding breakfast was partaken of. The happy couple left for their honeymoon trip to Oahupo and Rotorua, returning via Te Aroha and Thames, the bride travelling in a becoming grey costume, with a hat to match.
