    Pretty ceremony at Liskeard
    Much local interest was taken in the wedding which was solemized at the Greenbank
    United Methodist Church, Liskeard on Wednesday week, contracting parties being Mr. John
    Yelland Hooper of St. Dennis, eldest son of Mr. John Hooper of St. Dennis, and Miss
    Gladys Violet Jeffery, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Jeffery, of Dean St.,
    Liskeard. The bridegroom is manager and secretary of The Park China Clay Co., St.Neot
    and associated with the Gothers and Halviggan works in the St.Austell district, while
    the bride has been the organist at Greenbank for several years.  There was a large
    congregation, and the ceremony was performed by the Rev. S. Westcott. As the bride
    entered the church Mr. A. W. Venning, organist of the Weslian Church, played the Bridal
     March from Lokengrin, and the hymns before and after the ceremony were 'Crown with Thy
    Benediction' and Thine Forever God in Love'.
     Given away by her father, the bride looked well in a dress of soft white satin,
    trimmed with ninon and carrickmag Ross lace, with a train and under noche of chiffon,
    adorned with a true lovers knot of orange blossom and myrtle. A wreath of orange
    blossom and myrtle was covered with a veil of Brussels net. She carried a sheath of
    Harrisil lillies, and her only ornament was a diamond and pearl pendant, a gift of the
    bridegroom. Miss Lilly Hooper (sister of the bridegroom), Miss Jeffery (Saltash),
    cousin of the bride, and little Violet Williams (St.Austell) cousin of the bridegroom,
    were bridesmaids. Mr. J. M. Hooper (brother of the bridegroom, acted as 'Best Man'.
    Whilst the register was being signed the organist played 'Mendelsons Wedding March',
    and Mr. and Mrs. Hooper left amid showers of confetti. After a reception at the brides
    house, Mr. and Mrs. Hooper left by motor for St.Germans, on route for London and North
    Wales, the bride travelling in a costume of navy blue with Leghorn hat trimmed with
    forget-me-nots and black lace.
