    • WEDDING BELLS.

      WATSON - LINSELL

      On Wednesday, January 15, the wedding was quietly solemnised at the Rangitaiki Presbyterian Church of Eleanor Margaret, fourth daughter of Mr and Mrs F. T. Linsell, of Onepu, and Thomas James, eldest son of Mr and Mrs R. R. H. Watson, of Otakiri.

      The bride, who entered the church on the arm of her father, looked most attractive in a frock of dusky pink, charmingly embroidered in pastel shades at the neck and waistline. Her hat and accessories were powder blue, and she carried a posy of cactus dahlias to tone with her frock.

      In attendance as bridesmaid was Miss Patricia Linsell, sister of the bride, who wore a frock of aqua blue crepe, with navy hat and accessories, and carried a posy of gerberas and carnations. The bridegroom was attended by his brother, Mr Phillip Watson, as best man.

      The officiating clergyman was the Rev. J. H. Starnes, and the organist was Mrs Gowie.

      Following the ceremony, a reception, attended by relatives, was held at the home of the bride's parents. Mrs Linsell received her guests wearing a frock of teal blue with touches of gold, and a matching hat. She carried a posy in burgundy tonings. She was assisted by Mrs Watson, who wore an ensemble of pastel green with hat to tone. Her posy was of phlox in cyclamen shades.

      The bride travelled later wearing a frock of teal green with a floral stripe, and a matching jacket. Her hat and accessories were navy blue.
