  Marriage Notes:

" A very stylish and pretty wedding was celebrated at St. Patrick's Church yesterday afternoon, by the Rev Father Eviston, when Lieut. James McKay, second son of Mr. and Mrs. J. McKay, of 'The Overflow' station, Warren, was united in the holy bonds of matrimony to Miss Josephine Mary Crick, third daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Crick, of Stuart Town. The bride was given away by her father, and looked charming, being attired in a very pretty dress of white satin de soie and white georgette, embroidered in pearls and wore the customary wreath and veil, the latter being made of beautiful Brussels lace, and was lent to the bride by her aunt Mrs. English, widow of the late Lord Mayor of Sydney. She also carried a beautiful bridal bouquet of white tuberoses and white carnations, tied with streamers of chocolate and red, the bridegroom's battalion colors, and wore a diamond and pearl pendant, both gifts from the bridegroom. The bride was preceded up the isle by her little sister, Miss Winnie Crick, who carried a beautiful white cushion, the latter being a gift from the bridegroom's mother, and she was dressed in a dainty dress of white organdi muslin and wore a gold bangle, a gift from the bridegroom. The bridesmaid was Miss Agnes Crick, a sister of the bride, who was attired in a very pretty frock of pale pink silk, and carried a bouquet of pink flowers and wore a gold bangle, both being gifts from the bridegroom. Miss McKay, sister of the bridegroom, acted as trainbearer, and was dressed in white net, ornamented with pale blue chiffon and hand-made roses, and wore an early Victorian bonnet of lace and pale blue ribbon. She also wore a gold bangle, a gift from the bridegroom. Mr. Kenlen McKay fulfilled the duties of best man. The "'Wedding March" was played by Mrs. Hoare, of Geurie, sister to the bride. The bride's present to the bridegroom was a fitted suit case. After the ceremony a reception was held at Mr. R. M. Kimbell's rooms, where the usual toasts were honored. Mr. and Mrs. McKay then motored to Orange, from which place they left for the Mountains, and later on for New Zealand, where the honeymoon is being spent. The bride's travelling dress was of nattier blue taffeta, with hat to match. The bride was the recipient of many beautiful and costly presents. Their future home will be at Ingabar Station, Bellingara." 8
