An eager, interested crowd filled the pretty parish church of Northop on Wednesday, fully an hour before the time fixed for the wedding of Miss Marian Watkinson, eldest daughter of Mr. John Watkinson, of Brook Park, Northop, to Mr. Richard Kershaw, junr., of Crow Nest, Lightcliffe, near Halifax. The family of the bridegroom is one widely known and respected through the West Riding of Yorkshire, the bridegroom himself being a son of the Mayor of Brighouse, and a prominent figure in cricketing circles in that district, he having been captain of the West Riding and Bradford Cricket Clubs, besides being connected with a local club. It is, of course, common knowledge that Mr. Watkinson is a colliery proprietor and a large employer of labour in and near Northop. The great amount of interest centred in the event was shewn by the large number of people from near and far who filled the church and lined the approaches thereto, in order to be spectators of the scene. The edifice was decorated with effect, and over the entrance gates was an arch of evergreens, bearing the motto, 'God bless the happy pair,' similar erections being placed here and there in the village. As the hour of noon drew on, the guns at the collieries, which after a morning's cannonade had been for a short time silent, boomed out again, announcing the near approach of the party. The bride passed into church leaning on the arm of her father, who gave her away. Her dress was a dazzling creation of white duchess satin, trimmed with Honiton lace, embroidered chiffon and orange blossom white embroidered tulle veil and wreath of orange blossom. She also wore a diamond bracelet, and, ornament- ing her hair, a diamond crescent and star, the gifts of the bridegroom, while her lovely bouquet was com- posed of orchids, and was similar to those carried by the bridesmaids. The service was fully choral, being conducted by the Rev. Geo. Watkinson, who was assisted by the Rev. Clement Davies, vicar of Northop, and the Revs. Wm. Jones and W. James, former curates of the parish. As the bride entered, the choir sang The voice that breathed o'er Eden.' the remainder of the service being intoned and the Psalms sung, while before the homily the hymn Thine for ever God of love, was given. The bridesmaids were Miss Fanny Watkinson (sister of the bride), and the Misses May Sutcliffe and Ethel, Janey, Annie and Alice Watkinson (cousins of the bride). They were attired in dresses of pink silk bengaline trimmed with chiffon and lace, pink picture hats trimmed with pink roses to match. Their ornaments were gold heart lockets and chains with emerald centres and covered with pearls, these being the gifts of the bridegroom. The mother of the bride was handsomely gowned in heliotrope brocaded satin, trimmed with Honiton lace, and bonnet to match. Mr. J. Baines Kershaw acted as best man. The service over, Mr. Phillips, organist, played Mendelssohn's wedding march, the bells clanged out, the people cheered, and the party drove away amid showers of rice. Later in the day the happy pair left for London and the Isle of Wight, where the honeymoon will be spent. Dinner was provided at the Boot Hotel for the church choir, bellringers, church officials, and a number of friends. Those present at the wedding breakfast, in addition to tne bride and bridegroom, were Mr. Kershaw and Mrs. Watkinson, Mr. John Watkinson and Mrs. Hamilton Young, Mr. J. B. Kershaw and Mrs. F.

The Neston and Parkgate district was en fits on Wednesday, the occasion being the marriage of Miss Emily Jane Barton, of Highfield, Parkgate, and Mr. James Millington Sing, of the Dell Beechwood, Aigburth, Liverpool. The bride is well known in the neighbourhood, having been actively associated with most of the parochial philanthropic movements.

The bridegroom is the eldest son of Mr. Joshua Sing, J.P., of Kelton, Aigburth, and is a well-known Liverpool merchant. Both Parkgate and Neston were profusely decorated in recognition of the joyous event, lines of bunting crossing the thoroughfares in all directions, in addition to the great number of flags displayed at the windows of the residences on the route from the bride's house to the church. The latter was most tastefully decorated with flowers by the Misses M. and B. Comber, Miss Lacy Miss M. Sawers, and Mrs. W. E. Whineray, and was early filled with a large and fashionable congregation, while the churchyard and approaches were thronged with spectators. The ceremony took place at 2-45, with full choral service, the officiating clergy being the Dean of Manchester, the Revs. Canon Sing (brother of the bride- groom, vicar of St. John's, Derby) and H. R. Sherwen (Neston). Dr. MacDonald Sing (London), brother of the bridegroom, acted as best man, and the bride was given away by Mr. J. G. Churton (Manor House.)

The bride looked very charming in a dress of steel grey satin, with velvet toque to match.

Merry peals were rung upon the bells immediately after the ceremony, and repeated at intervals during the day and evening. A reception was held during the afternoon at the Manor House, about 180 guests attending. The happy pair afterwards drove to Hooton, en route for London, where the honeymoon will be spent.
