T'D 9 Cl MR. H. TOLLEMACHE'S WEDDING. [FROM OCR LONDON CORRESPONDENT.] +- In marked contrast to the damp and uncon- genial weather of the several preceding days, Wednesday was bright and fair. The day was appointed for the marriage of Mr. Henry J. Tolle- mache, M.P., and Mrs. Katherine Streatfeild, the happy event being solemnized at the fashionable West End church of St. Michael's, Chester-square. Though by the desire of both parties the wedding was of a quiet character, it had occasioned much interest, not only in Cheshire but in the metro- polis, where the popular member for Eddisbury is widely esteemed. Invitations were restricted to relatives and close personal friends, but none the less there was a considerable gathering in the church before the hour of the ceremony, which was half-past one o'clock. The red carpet cover- ing the approach to the porch with its accustomed awning indioated to passers-by that a wedding was fixed for the afternoon, and by the time the carriages conveying guests drew up, an interested knot of spectators surrounded the entrance. Mr. Tollemache is so well-known that any but a few words concerning him would be superfluous. But it will be recalled that he has represented a Cheshire division in Parliament since 1881, hav- ing entered the House of Commons as member for the Western Division in that year. When the constituencies were recast under the Redistribu- tion of Seats Act of 1885. he was returned for the Eddisbury Division and has enjoyed uninterrupted- ly the suffrages of the electors since that time. Mr. Tollemache, whose Cheshire seat is Dorfold Hall, Nantwich, is the eldest son of the late Mr. Wilbraham Spencer Tollemache, brother of the first Lord Tollemache, and is consequently a cousin of the present holder of the title. The lady who has now become his wife, Mrs. Katherine Mary Frances Streatfeild, is a daughter of the Rev. Henry Arkwright, of Bodenham, Herts, and widow of Mr. Thomas Edward Champion Streat- feild, who died in 1882. As the guests were assembling the organist of the churoh, Mr. Thomas J. Crawford, Mus. Bac., F.R.O.O., played Greig'a "Voioe of the Morning" and Dubois's "Oantoline Nuptiale." Among those present were noticed the Hon. Blanche Tollemache, the HOD. Duff Tollemaohe, the Hon. Mrs. H. and Miss Tollemache, Sir John Ark- wright (uncle of the bride), Miss Ellen Arkwright, Miss Alice Arkwright, Mr. Robert Arkwright, Mr. Chas. Arkwright (nephews and nieces), Mr. and Mrs. Bertram Arkwright, Colonel and Mrs. Corn- wall Legh, Mr. J. Tomkinson, M.P., and Mrs. Tomkinson, Mrs. L. and Miss E. Streatfeild, Miss Vernon Haroourt, Mr. Christopher Roundell, Mrs. Allen Erskine, Mrs. Rate, Mrs. Bonsor, Mrs. Walter Clarke, and Mrs. W. Maysmor Williams. The bride, who was attended by her sister, Mrs. Arkwright, was attired in a handsome dress of a soft delicate shade of silver grey cloth, re- lieved with ivory crepe de chine and real old lace front. She wore a large grey picture hat with plumes of the same colour, and carried a beauti- ful bouquet of lilies of the valley and other white flowers. Mrs. Arkwright was dressed in black velvet trimmed with laoe and sequins, and wore a black hat with tall white aigrette. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. Edgar Sheppard, sub- dean of the Chapel Royal, St. James's, assisted the Rev. William H. Arkwright, rural dean of Wirksworth, Derbyshire, the bride being given away by her brother, Mr. Evelyn Arkwright, while Lord Revelstoke acted as groomsman. While the party were signing the register the or- ganist played Lemaire's Andantino in D flat, and later as the bride and bridegroom passed down the aisle the fine maroh from Gounod's "Queen of Sheba." SubseQuently Lady Walsingham gave a recep- tion at Eaton House, Eaton-square, which was attended by a number of those present in the church and other friends, and during the after- noon Mr. and Mrs. Tollemache left for Dorfold Hall. Nantwich. The bride's travelling costume consisted of mole coloured cloth, trimmed with moleskin, and silver buttons, and a large coat of the same material with large collars and revers of moleskin, and black picture hat. WEDDING PRESENTS. A large number of wedding presents were sent direct to Dorfold Hall, and therefore do not appear in the accompanying list. The gift of the tenantry on the Dorfold estate, to which every farmer and cottager subscribed, consisted of an antique silver cup, mounted on an ebony plinth, bearing the in- scription "Presented to Mr. H. J. Tollemache, Eeq., M.P., by his tenants on the occasion of his marriage." Some forty-four of Mr. Tollemache's friends instead of making individual presents, hit upon the happy idea of subscribing together to purchase him a motor-oar.
