MARRIAGE OF MISS VINCENT EVANS. One of the most popular and interesting events witnessed in London Welsh life in recent years was the wedding of Miss Gladys Annie Ellen Evans, the only daughter of Mr. E. Vincent Evans, to Mr. John Clark, of Annan, N.B., which took place at New Jewin Welsh Chapel on Tuesday last. The bride's father is so well known in London Welsh circles that a host of friends and admirers desired to shower their good wishes on the occasion of the marriage of his only daughter. The large edifice, which had been artistically decorated for the event, was filled to overflowing with a crowd of well wishers and the nuptial knot was tied by the Rev. J. E. Davies, M.A., assisted by the Rev. H. Elvet Lewis, M.A., and the Rev. J. Machreth Rees. As Mr. Vincent Evans is so ardent an Eisteddfodwr it was only fitting to secure the services of such eminent crown and chaired bards for such an event. The bride, who was given away by her father, was accompanied as bridesmaids by Miss Mabel Young (cousin), Miss Dorothy Jones (daughter of Dr. R. Jones, Blaenau Festiniog), and Miss Isabella Poth, of Wal- lington (cousin). Mr. Lewis Noel Vincent Evans acted as best man. The bride wore a Princess robe of ivory crepe meteore, trimmed with silver embroidery and lace, a veil, with wreath of orange blossoms and white heather, and carried a posy of lilies of the valley. The dresses worn by the brides- maids were Empire style of apple green tussore, trimmed with gold embroidery and with net yokes they had Leghorn hats with loops and ends of green ribbon, and their posies were of daffodils tied with green ribbons. As the congregation assembled, appropriate festal music was played on the organ by Mr. David Richards, A.R.C.O., and during the service the hymns, "0 perfect Love" and Lord, grant Thy servants, who implore," were sung. After the ceremony at the chapel, a recep- tion was held at the Trocadero, where about 300 guests were present, among whom were Lord Glantawe, the Hon. Elaine Jenkins, Sir Francis Edwards, M.P., and Lady Edwards, Sir Alfred Thomas, M.P., Mr. Timothy Davies, M P., and Mrs. Davies, Sir Clifford J. Cory, M.P., Mr. Ellis J.

Sir Alfred Thomas, M.P., in a compli- mentary little speech, proposed the health of the bride and bridegroom, and wished them a long and prosperous life. In reply the bridegroom returned thanks to all the com- pany assembled. In the evening Mr. and Mrs. Clark left for Boscombe, where the honeymoon will be spent.
