MARRIAGE OF MISS BEATRICE PAGET. ~— Lord Herbert, M.V.O., Royal Horse Guards, eldest son of the Earl of Pembroke, Lord Steward of the Household to his Majesty, was married to Miss Beatrice Paget, younger daughter of the late Lord Alexander Paget, at St. Peter's Church, Eaton square, on Thursday afternoon. A detaohment of non-oom- missioned officers and troopers of the bridegroom's troop, in King's Guard order, and accompanied by two State trumpeters, lined the portico out- side the church till the arrival of the bride. The interior was beautifully decorated, a number of tall palms forming an arch at the entrance to the chancel, and another in front of the altar, with groups of lilium auratum and foliage surrounding their stems. The bridegroom was supported by the Hon. Richard Molyneux, Royal Horse Guards, as best man. The bride, on her arrival with her mother, Lady Alexander Paget, was conducted up the aisle by her brother, Mr. Paget. Her gown of white crepe de chine was richly embroidered with Madonna lilies in chiffon and silver; and the Court train of white satin mousseline was deli- oately worked to correspond down each side, and draped with scarves of chiffon. A wreath of real orange blossom was, worn beneath an antique Brussels laoe veil lent to the bride by the Countess of Pembroke, and her jewel was a large diamond and sapphire pendant, the gift of the bridegroom. H&r bouquet of lilies of the valley was tied with the guards' colours. The train was earned by four little children: Lord Settrington, the Hon. Maynard Greville, and the little daughters of Mrs. Rupert Beckett and Lady Beatrice Rawson. The boys wore mousquetaire costumes of pale blue satin with shirts of white chiffon, lace ruffles, and blue capes lined with white, while their white felt hats were plumed with long blue feathers. The little girls were in white satin frocks veiled with chiffon, with blue satin cloaks like the pages, and large quaint bonnets of white satin with blue feathers. The eight bridesmaids were: Miss Paget, sister of the bride Lady Muriel Herbert, sister of the bridegroom; Miss StapLeton Cotton, Lady Evelyn Innes-Ker, the Hon. Ethel Gerard, Miss Colebrooke, the Hon. Eleanor Brougham, and Lady Kathleen Thynne. They were dressed in white accordion-pleated cos- tumes, edged with sable, w.th laced yokes to the crossed bodices and high belts of gold tissue. Large sprays of pink roses were fastened in front of their gowns, and they wore pale blue Napoleon hats trimmed with gold galon and brown feathers shading to light blue. They carried Prayer-books bound in white vellum, and wore brooches with initials and coronet in diamonds, given by the bridegroom. The Guardsmen entered the church and followed the bridal procession up the aisle, where they remained till the end of the ceremony. The Bishop of Salisbury performed the rite, and the Rev. Dr. Sheppard, sub-aean of the Chapels Royal; the Rev. Canon Olivier, chaplain to the Earl of Pembroke; and the Rev. John Storrs, vicar of the parish, took part in the service. The hymns were "0 Jesus, I have promised," and "0 perfect love," and the anthem was Martin's Whoso dwelleth under the defence of the Most High." Lady Alexander Paget afterwards held a recep- tion at Stratford House, Stratford-place, lent by Sir Edward and Lady Colebrooke. The bride and bridegroom subsequently departed for Exning, the Earl of Durham's place at Newmarket. The Guardsmen who had lined the entrance during the reoeption formed up in a double line outside and gave the young pair a hearty send-off, oheering and waving their helmets as Lord and Lady Her- bert drove away. The bride's travelling dress was of blue cloth, with chinchilla hat and furs, the gift of her mother. His Majesty the King presented the bridegroom with a ruby and diamond pin, sent with an auto- graph card with the words: On the occasion of your marriage, and with best wishes for your hap- piness, from Edward R.I." His Royal Highness the Duke of Connaught gave a handsome card table. The Aga Khan sent a large oollar of various gems; the officers of the Royal Horse Guards presented the bridegroom with a huge sil- ver bowl. TheDuke of Westminster's present was a silver double inkstand. Katharine Duohess of Westminster gave jewelled and gold-mounted crystal pens and paper-cutter. Lady Alexander Paget gave her daughter a large marquise diamond ring, and a complete set of table glass, handsomely decorated with gold. The bride's brothers and sister presented her with a complete toilet service in glass with gilt rims. Lord and Lady Berkeley Paget s present was a crocodile dressing-case, fully fitted, with silver-g It, monogrammed and ooroneted, and tortoiseshell brushes and boxes to correspond. There were handsome presents from the Earl of Pembroke's colleagues of the Royal Household and from the employes on his Irish and English estates. Altogether there were over 600 presents.
