A Welsh Wedding in London.


A Welsh Wedding in London. An interesting wedding took place on Thursday, April 9th, at St. John's Church, East Dulwich. The contracting parties were Mr. John Tudor Evans, of Margaret Street, E.C., and Miss Ada M. Lloyd, daughter of Mr. Thomas Lloyd, of 69, Waghorn Street, East Dulwich, and Rhydypenau," Bow Street, Cardiganshire. The service was in Welsh throughout, the Rev. James Roderick officiating. Both bride and bridegroom are well-known among London Welshmen, Mr. Tudor Evans being a musician of no mean abilities, and Miss Lloyd has performed the duties of organist at St. Mary's Welsh Church, Camberwell, for the last ten years. The weather turned out delightful, and a large number of friends and wellwishers filled the church of St. John's to witness the ceremony. The bride was given away by her father, and Miss Maggie Evans, sister of the bridegroom, and Miss Polly Pryse Jenkins, London Road, were the brides- maids. Mr. David Evans, R.A.M., brother of the bridegroom, acted as best man. The Wedding March" was played by Mr. Blewett Faull, organist of St. John's. The dresses of the bride and her maids were greatly admired. The bride wore a dress of lavender silk, trimmed with silk netting and silver bows, and a cream tulle hat, with feather to match. The bridesmaids looked very pretty in wedge wood blue dresses, trimmed with lace, and leghorn hats, trimmed with pink roses and wedgewood flowers. After the ceremony in the church the wedding party and their guests, to the num- ber of about one hundred, adjourned to the Imperial Hall close by, where the reception and the wedding breakfast took place. The Rev. Lewis Roderick proposed the health of the newly-married couple, and the Rev. J. E. Davies, Jewin, seconded. The name of Mr. Blewett Faull, the organist, was coupled with the toast to the bridesmaids, and Mr. Faull delighted the party with a most humorous and interesting speech in reply. The young couple left early in the afternoon for Hove to spend their honeymoon. The wedding presents were very numer- ous, but the most interesting was the Cottage Canteen," valued 20 guineas, presented by the congregation of St. Mary's Church to the bride.
