    Wedding at Nanpean
    A very pretty wedding was solemnised at Nanpean United Methodist Church on
    Saturday last, the contracting parties being Maud Mary, second daughter of
    Captain W.A. and Mrs Yelland, Nanpean, and Ernest Albert, third son of the late
    Mr John Gliddon, of Goverseth. The Reverend F. Pearn officiated in the presence
    of a large gathering. The bride was given away by her father. Mr S. Endean
    acted as best man. The bridesmaids were the Misses Mildred and Ethel Yelland
    (sister of the bride) also little Miss Thora Yelland (niece of the bride). The
    bride was neatly attired in a navy blue costume with a white corded silk hat
    wth navy trimmings and feather to match. She also wore a white net veil,
    carrying a bouquet of white chrysanthemums and asparragus fern, the gift of
    the bridegroom. The bridesmaids looked very pretty in white dresses with
    trimmings of lace; they also wore black velvet hats with bunches of violets.
    Her little niece looked charming in a white silk dress and bonnet. The choir
    was present and sang the hymns, "The voice that breathed o'er Eden" and "Crown
    with Thy Benediction." Mr W.J. Yelland presided at the organ and played the
    Wedding March.
    At the close of the service the Rev.F. Pearn presented the bride with a
    splendid tea service (consisting of 40 pieces), the gift of the choir, of
    which she had been member from a child. He spoke of the valuable services
    she had rendered,  and said the gift was a tangible proof of the esteem with
    which she was held. On behalf of the church and choir he wished Mr. and Mrs.
    Gliddon every happiness in their future life. Numerous other presents were
    also received.
    The brides going away attire was a tango whipcord coat trimmed with satin and
    velvet hat to match. The honeymoon is being spent at Plymouth. A reception was
    held at the home of the bride, a large number being present.
