[Jon Burne commented on the “luscious language” used in the previous article. That reminded me of the lost art of describing wedding attire and accoutrements.]

The Armidale Chronicle, Saturday, October 1, 1927

At the Cameron Memorial Church, Glen Innes, on Saturday last, the marriage was celebrated of Anne, youngest daughter of Mrs. J. R. Munro, of Glen Innes, and the late Alexander Munro, of Perth, to Keith Jamieson, eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. W. J. McLennan, Kilcoy, Armidale. The bride, who was given away by her brother-in-law, Mr. A. E. Pearson, wore a frock of ivory crepe nanette, trimmed with panels of French pleating and beautifully embroidered with pearls and crystal beads. Instead of the customary veil and train the bride wore tulle, with a coronet of orange blossom mounted on silver tissue, which was most effective. Her bouquet was composed of pink and white carnations and fern, with silver streamers.

The bride was attended by three bridesmaids, Miss Kitty Munro and the Misses Edna and Mary McLennan. The bridesmaids, who were daintily frocked in buttercup taffeta, wore turbans of tulle to tone, and carried bouquets of pink sweet peas, with gold streamers.

Dr. R. D. Davey, of Sydney, acted as best man. After the ceremony, Mrs. A. E. Pearson, sister of the bride, received the guests at Hunt’s, Grey-street. She wore a smart frock of navy georgette, with mauve hat, and carried a posy to harmonise.

Mrs. W. J. McLennan, mother of the bridegroom, was gowned in a pretty frock of bordered morocain, with hat to match, and a posy of violets completed her toilet.

The bride chose a mulberry shade of morocain for her travelling frock, with hat en suite. Mr. and Mrs. McLennan motored to the North Coast, where they intend spending their honeymoon.

They were the recipients of many handsome gifts and cheques.
