FASHIONABLE WEDDING. The appearance of the beautiful little village of Llangynider, on Thursday last, betokened that an event of no ordinary interest and importance was about to happen. The stranger would have almost fancied himself in fairy land as he gazed on the numerous arches which had been erected between Pwll Court and the parish church, and the various other adornments of the place. These said arches were of most tasteful workmanship, "and bore elegant devices appropriate to the event about to take place, and expressive of the best wishes towards those espe- cially in whom the chief interest of the day centred. Many a fair hand had been engaged for many a precious hour on these decorations, which testified alike to the skill of those who had woven them, and the interest felt by all in those whose hearts and lives would that day be indissolubly bound together. All these preparations, and yet more, had been made in order to do honour to the respected occupants of Pwll Court, this being the day fixed upon for the marriage of Miss Edmundtina Snead, eldest surviving daughter of the late J. P. Snead, Esq., of Pwll Court, with Arthur Garnons Lawrence, Esq., M.D., of The Cedars, Chepstow. As the hour drew near at which the ceremony was fixed to take place, the road to the church was thronged with those anxious to witness it, and as the bride and her bridesmaids arrived every eye was strained to catch a glimpse of her. Arrayed in a dress of white satin, which became her well, and with veil of Honiton lace, and wreath of orange blossoms, the bride looked the picture of loveliness; and seldom, perhaps, have a better looking pair stood before the marriage altar. The bridesmaids were four in number, and consisted of Miss F. Snead, and three sisters of the bridegroom. They were all dressed in white grenadine, trimmed with mauve. The groomsman was Henry Lawrence, Esq., the brother to the bridegroom, and the bride was given away by her brother, J. A. F. Snead, Esq, The ceremony was performed by the Revs. R. Gwynne and T. E. Lawrence, brothers of the bridegroom, assisted by the Rev. H. T. Harris, M.A., rector of Llangynider, the service being of a choral character, and admirably rendered. As the newly made pair left the sacred edifice their path was strewn with flowers, and many a hearty wish expressed that peace and happiness might attend their future life. The wed- ding breakfast took place at Pwll Court, and was a most elegant affair. The party was confined to the members of the two families, with the exception of the Rev. H. T. and Mrs. Harris. The wedding presents were, we understand, over 70 in number, and of a very beautiful and costly description. Early in the afternoon the happy pair left en rottte for the conti- nent. The rejoicings in the village were continued throughout the day, the school children being liber- ally regaled with tea and cake on the lawn, a supper being given to the domestics, &c. The bells of St. John's, St. Mary's, and St. David's, Brecon, also rang merry peals at intervals during the remainder of the day.
