There was a large attendance at St. John's Church of England on Wednesday morning to witness the marriage of Mr. Percy Bruce Boon, eldest son of Mr. George Boon, of Tarrabaudro, and Miss Mary Olive Hardwick, second daughter of Mr John Hardwick, of Kincora, Big Ben Creek.
The bride, who was given away by her father, wore a beautiful costume of silk chiffon voile, with silk applique trimmings, besides a very choice wreath and veil. Her bridesmaid, Miss Christina Trimble, wore a pretty costume of pale pink hadianta cloth, trimmed with braid. She also wore a becoming hat of pale pink crinoline straw, trimmed with ribbon and pink roses.
Mr. Thomas Hardwick had the post of best man. As the bride entered the church Miss F Mclaughlin who presided at the organ, played 'The voice that breathed o'er Eden,' besides the 'Wedding March' as the wedding party left the church. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. W. Cowan.
At noon about 200 of the friends of the happy young couple (who will take up their residence.at South Gundagai) assembled at the hospitable borne of the bride's parents, 'Kincora,' whom a sumptuous wedding breakfast had been prepared, and so numerous was the party that four sittings were necessary.
The toasts honored were ' The Bride and Bridegroom,' proposed by the Rev. W. Cowan (the chairman) and responded to by the bridegroom; 'The Bridesmaid,' proposed by the bridegroom and responded to by Mr. T. Hardwick ; 'The Parents of the Bride,' proposed by the 'Rev. W. Cowan and duly responded too.
The wedding presents numbered about one hundred, and were displayed on two tables. They were a particularly beautiful lot, testifying to the popularity of the happy young couple.
In the evening about forty couples spent a very enjoyable time at Kincora, dancing being indulged in until the early hours of Thursday.
