THE MARRIAGE OF DR. LIVINGSTONE, BARRY DOCK. The Glamjiw Eceniny New*, describing the marriage of Mr J. Livingstone, M.D.. M.B.. of Barry ,Dock, on Wednesday week last, stated:— In New- field Free Church, at two o'clock on Wednesday, another smart ceremony took place-the marriage of Miss Evelyn Watson to Dr. Livingstone, of Barry, Cardiff. The Rev. W. M. Macgregor officiated. The choir was lavishly and beautifully decorated with palms and daffodils, the front pew being a mass of greenery and spring flowers. The bride, who looked very charming and pretty, wore a rich gown of ivory satin duchesse, having a long court train, turned over at the corner to show a knot of bridal flowers. The front of the skirt was festooned with white chiffon, caught up with myrtle orange blossoms, and the short bodice was draped with white chiffon, and had zouaves outlined, with peral passementerie. The bridesmaids were three in number, her two sisters and Miss Macfarlane. The young ladies wore dainty frocks (made with the other stylish wedding gowns and millinery by Macarthur). These were of cream crinkled crepon, with short bodices trimmed with lace, and having a bunch of daffodils caught on the left shoulder. The hats with these costumes were very picturesque -white chip, trimmed with fine ostrich feathers and daffodils. Bouquets of the same flowers were carried also, burnished gold brooches, the gifts of the bridegroom. Mrs Watson, the bride's mother, was gowned in a rich black duchesse satin, handsomely trimmed with cut jet over heliotrope satin. Her bonnet was a pretty combination of jet and moire, with heliotrope flowers. Mrs Livingstone's going-away gown was of grey poplin, having a vest. cuffs, and neckband of moorish native embroidery, gold on a grey ground. A dainty little hat, grey with gold trimming, com- pleted the costume. LIST OF GUESTS AXD PRESENTS.
