Weddings. Ryan— Hunter.
A pretty wedding was celebrated at St. Brigid's Church, Dubbo, on Saturday last, by the Rev. Dr. Brophy, when William, only son of Mr. and Mrs. P. Ryan, of County Clare, Ireland, and Ida Florence, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Hunter, of Narromine (late of Dubbo), were united.
The bride, who was given away by her father, was attired in ivory crepe-de- chine. She wore the customary wreath and veil, and carried a handsome bouquet, which, with a gold brooch, wasthe gift of the bridegroom. The bridesmaids were Miss Rita Hunter and Miss Nellie Douglas (sister and cousin respectively of the bride), each of whom wore a dainty gown of shell pink satin with touches of blue, and fancy leghorn hats; they carried bouquets and wore gold brooches, which were the gifts of the bridegroom. Mr. Arthur Douglas (uncle of the bride) was best man, and Mr. F. Stearman groomsman.
The bride's gift to the bridegroom was a set of gold sleeve-links. After the ceremony the guests adjourned to the residence of Mr. Arthur Douglas, where a sumptuous breakfast was partaken of. Mr. F. W. Lyle presided, and the usual loyal and wedding toasts were musically honored. Mr. Cluff proposed the toast of the bride and bridegroom, and the chairman that of the parent, and host and hostess. The happy couple left by mail train the same evening for Brisbane, where the honeymoon is being spent. The bride's going-away dress was navy crepe-de- chine, with chip straw hat trimmed with fruit to tone. The numerous presents included several substantial cheques.
Mr. and Mrs. Ryan's future home will be at Nevertire.
