The Fatality at Fishguard…

- Fashionable Wedding at Dinas.…


Fashionable Wedding at Dinas. With merry lilt the bell of St Brynach's Church, Dinas, proclaimed the marriage, on Saturday last, of Mr Henry Worrall, a gentleman of wealth and influence, of Crims- worth, Whalley R-ipole, near Manchester, and Miss Janet Greener, B A.. principal of the Manchester High School, and sister of Dr Greener, which was solemnised at Dinas Parish Church. The day was an ideal one, the country side bathed in the golden sun- light from a cloudless sky, appeared in all the beauty of early summer tints. Cwm- yreglwys, beside the joyous sea, shone, not only in its exquisite natural beauty, but with Hags, and bunting, a profusion of flora and amiated whisperings of the community who gathered to acclaim the auspicious occasion and give welcome to the bridal patty. There was an unmistakable air of rejoicing from one cud of the breezy city to the other. Towering high on the crest of the hill over looking Ashgrove, a flagstaff bearing the national colours waving in the cooling breeze, could be seen from the Garn on the way from Fishguard. Then along the road to Penrbiw a streamers were displayed at almost every house, while in the centre of a line of bright bunting that stretched across the road was the motto" we wi-h yon joy." At the little fishiug harbour of Cwmyreglwys the fishing bo-it d Capt Davies, the i; Good Hope," had flags flying, and the Capt of the Daisy had similar clecat-ations at his house. From the main-road down t) the sacred edifice nearly every house joined in the general display. The interior of the church was tastefully decorated with lovely blossoms and rose-buds. Round the communion rails were entwined honeysuckle, and the windows with brambles aud roses, while pulpit, reading- des-k aud organ presented an artistic appear- ance under garlands of elder leaves and blossoms, creepers and blooms Choice coloured blooms lit up the altar, pulpit and chancel, the work nfleeting credit, on the decorators who were as fullows :—Miss Williams and Miss Alderson (rectory), Mrs Huthwait (London), Mrs Parker, Miss Dolly Jenkins, Miss Ann Williams, Rev M H Huthwait, and Messrs T LI Thomas, and T Williams, Brynhenllan. It was intended, so far as the outside world was concerned, to keep the event as quiet as possible, but Dina'dles were well-informed and, therefore, determined to celebrate the nuptials in a manner worthy of the place and the generous family at Penrhiw. Dr and Mrs Greener and family as well as the bride Miss Greener have ingratiated themselves in the hearts of the people by their residence among them and the keen interest they evince in the wel- fare of the place as a health resoit. No more convincing testimony of the family's affection tor Dinas could be shown than in the build- ing of Penrhiw, Dr Greener's new residence at Cwmyreglwys, and which not only adds beauty to the spot of waste, unprofitable ground, but finds employment for several persons throughout the year. The ceremony was fixed for 11.30, to enable, the couple to reach their destination by train from Crymmych after the luncheon. and tor neaily an hour previously the sacred building was filled with people bedecked in summer frocks whilst round the entrance a large number awaited the arrival of the con- tracting parties. Miss Alderson presided at the oigan, aud Mr Carter Bennett conducted the choir which rendered the hymn with much heartiness, The voice that breath'd oer Klen, as the party entered the church and took seats in the chancel. In the absence through family illness, of Canou Mitchell. Liverpool (cousin of Mrs (Dr) Greener), the ceremony was performed by the Rev J Williams, rector, assisted by the Rev M H Huthwait, London, the latter a visitor with his mother ( NIrs Huthwait). at Cnwc Mr George Worrall, brother of the bridegroom acted as bestman, Dr Greener gave his sister away and the bride was attended by Miss Grace Worrall, daughter of the bridegroom, atid Mrs Greener as bridesmaids. Others of ¡ the pirty were Mr Phillip Worrall and Mr Stephen Worrall—sons of the bridegroom, the last named ot whom holds a commission in the Border Regiment statioued at Devonpoit and recently returned from South Africa—Miss Nora Pi ingle, daughter of Dr Pringle, Bridgend and Miss Phyllis Adcock, daughter of Dr Adeock, of Bath. The bride was becomingly attired in a gown of grey voile over white silk her hat of butnt straw was trimmed with black velvet and roses. She carried a lovely boquet of roses as did the bridesmaids and lady guests. Her orna- ments were pearl and diamond the gifts of the bridegroom. Mrs Greener looked stately- elegant gowned in French embroidered muslin and picture hat with black feathers, and Miss Grace Worrall's dress suited her youthful figure admirably. At the conclusion Miss Alderson (who was charmingly attired in white silk), played in good style Mendels- sohn's Wedding March," and as they leit 0 the church two pretty girls in white, Miss Lillian Hopkins, Henllan, and Miss Annie Carter Bennett, Ilescwm, preceded the happy couple and strewed flowers along the pathway through the church-yard, while the onlookers greeted them with showers of rice. This pretty scene was enhanced at the gates when, just as Mr and Mrs Worrall dreve away, a sweet boquet of white violets was thrown into the carriage; Mrs Gieeuer also receiving a boquet of pink roses from the hands of two of the fair inhabitants of the place. There were hearty cheers as the carriages and pairs dashed away up the road and to Penrhiw where the Rector of Dinas and Miss Alderson joined the guests at the luncheon, after which at 3 o'clock Mr and Mrs Worrall were accor- ded a most cordial send off by the guests and a numerous assembly. They drove to Crymmych and entrained for Llandrindod Wells en route for Church Stretton to spend the honeymoon.

PROCEEDINGS AT PENRHIW. At the invitation of Dr and Mrs Greener, a large proportion of the children of Dinas, together with employees, all who were in any way connected with the proceedings, and numerous friends were right merrily enter- tained on the lawn at Penrhiw, during the afternoon. Erected on a high plateau over- looking the silvery sea, the residence com- mands a magnificent view of the coast and the bea-ilands in the distance, while at the foot of the hill lies the grand old sleepy hollow of Cwmyreglwys, rich in folk-lore, and the crumbling remains of the ancient pile of St Brynach's Church, beneath whose shad- ow lie the remains of scores of Welsh worth- ies, whose tombstones, for the most part, are weather-worn, and hid in rank undergrowth. But to the brighter theme of revels and roy- stering. Host and hostess cordially received their visitors, among whom were noticed, in addition to the wedding guests, a gpod sprink- ling of rubicund agriculturists and their good Z5 t5 dames, many of the parish councillors and others, including Miss Williams, Rectory the Misses Thomas, Kenvor, Fishguard Mrs Huthwait, the Rev M. Huthwait, Rev J. Bowen, St Lawrence Mr Edwin Bennett, several Newportiaus, together with the New- port bandsmen, who discoursed some tuneful selections of music during the proceedings, in their usual good style. For upwards of three hours juveniles and elders romped in rings on the greeusward, gleeful laughter echoing Z5 o'er the gladsome scene. Meanwhile, steam ing soushong and appetising dainties in the shape of rich fancy cakes and bon bons, were dispensed ad libitum by the house party, whose assiduity was equalled only by the keen enjoynaenc of the youngsters in dispos- ing of the sweetmeats, for vigorous exercise on that pleasant upland by the sea whetted their youthful appetites to some tune. As time rolls on they will recall the event of Saturday afternoon last with lively pleasure, as being among the happiest hours of their lives. Before the close Mr Llevtfhelin Havard, Newport, by desire, gave the solo of Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau," in capital voice, the as- sembly joining in the refrain. The Rector of Dinas then stepped forward and remarked on the glorious day and the enjoyment that had been afforded them through the kind hospit- ality of Dr and Mrs Greener. He was sure all present would join with him in returning hearty and sincere thanks to them for the delightful way the guests had been entertained Mrs Greener was a wonderful lady she had converted that site, which net long ago, was nothing but a rocky wilderness of thorns and briers, into what they now saw was a verit- able paradise (applause). She had not only produced a beautiful garden, but had brought an Adam and Eve into it as well (applause). They had experienced unprecedented pleasure on that occasion-an occasion which would bear pleasant rtflection and he voiced the feeling of everyone ill thanking Dr and Mrs Greener (applause). Dr Greener, in acknowledging the expres- sion of thanks, pointed out that if it had not been for the kindness of their Rector the plot on which they stood would have been no better than it was previously, for he gave all the necessary turf. Mrs Greener endorsed the doctor's remarks, commenting on the pleasure their guests had afforded them. Mr Ll Havard, again by request, gave the Welsh National Anthem, after which the band accompanied the assembly in the National Anthem, and the gathering took leave of their entertainers.
