The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, wore a dainty frock of draped ivory crepe-de-chine and ninon, with beautiful pearls worn by her mother on her wedding day. The veil was of old Brussels lace, worn by many brides in Mrs. Beauchamp's family. To finish a very pretty toilette, Miss Beauchamp carried a bouquet of tiny white lilies and maidenhair fern. The bride's sister, Miss Jessie, was the only attendant. Her frock was of heliotrope morocain, and with it she wore a hat to match and bronze shoes and stockings, and carried a bouquet of lilies . The drawing-room had been decorated for the ceremony with tree-ferns and masses of rambler roses. Rev. Boyd, of Inglewood, was the officiating minister. Mr. Frank Thomas attended as best man. Miss Murchie played the Wedding March, etc.

Mrs. Beauchamp received her guests wearing a handsome frock of mole satin and crepe-de-chine, with a long grey lace scarf. Mrs. Gardner (Palmerston North), grandmother of the bride, wore black satin morocain. Mrs. Murchie, mother of the bridegroom, wore embossed fawn morocain with touches of brown, and a brown hat.
