Wedding at Mathry.


Wedding at Mathry. Beautiful weather favoured the nuptials on Saturday last, of Mr Vincent Johns, solicitor, Fishguard, eldest son of the Rev T. Johns, M.A., vicar of Manorowen and Llan- wnda, and Miss Thomas, youngest danghter of the late Mr H J Thomas, J.P., Lochtur- ffin, Mathry, which took place at Mathry Parish Church. The altar was nicely decora- ted with white flowers for the occasion by Miss Griffiths, and Miss Evelyn Griffiths, Vicarage, and Miss Thomas, Cross House. There were many guests and villagers in the church when the ceremony commenced, and many more arrived during the proceedings. Punctually at 2 o'clock the bridegroom step- ed forward to await the bride, accompanied by her brother, Mr Lloyd Thomas, who gave his sister away. As the party entered, the tune to the Voice that breath'd o'er Eden was played by Miss Griffiths. The bridal gown was of cream satin, with white picture hat, and the bride carried a boquet of choice white flowers. Miss Daw, the bridesmaid, wore pale blue with white picture hat. Dr Hughie Thomas attended as best man. The cere- mony was performed by the Rev T. Johns, father of the bridgroom, assisted by the Rev D. Griffiths, vicar of Mathry. In the hymns Lead us Heavenly Father. lead us," and Jesus shall reign where'er the sun," the singing was led by Mr Jenkins, school- master. At the conclusion of the ceremony and during the signing of the register, Miss Thomas, Parkynole, rendered several ap- propriate selections on the organ. Just as the newly-wed pair reached the western eud of the sacred edifice, near the font on their way out, they met with vigorous showers of rice and confetti, while along the pathway from the porch to tha entrance gates, the two children of Mr and Mrs Thomas, Tre- bale (Master L & Miss Thomas), preceded the happy couple, and strewed rose petals from tiny baskets. Among the relatives and guests were noticed Mr and Mrs Thomas, the Misses Thomas, Kenvoi Mr and Mrs Griffiths, Lleithyr Mrs Roberts, Swansea; Mrs Willie Owen, Cardiff; Mr John Worth- ington, Glynymel; Mr and Mrs Harries Bowen, Tresissilit; Mrs Johns, Miss Johns, the Misses D and N and Masters A and 0 Johns, Manorowen; Dr Williams (Drim); U. aDQ> and Miss Reynolds, Trehowell; Miss Wilson, Glynymel; Dr J M Owen Col and Mrs Porter, Goodwick Mrs and Miss Rees, Tremynydd Miss Morgan, Cartiett, Trevine; Miss Nanny Roberts and Miss Oliver, Trenewydd Fawr; Mrs W R Carver, Fishguard Mr J C and Miss Bowen, Pen- rhiw; Mr A 0 Robins, Goodwick; Mr Stanley Roberts, Messrs Lewis, Tyllwyd; Mr E Perkins, Penysgwarne Mr and Mrs Mathias, Peocnwc; Miss James, Goodwick Mrs Edwardes, Court House, Goodwick; Mrs (Dr) and Miss Madge Thomson, Good- wick Mr W T S Tombs and many others from the neighbourhood.

To celebrate the event a supper was given at Manorowen on Friday evening last to the tenantry and a few friends. The Rev T Johns presided, and the proceedings were of a most cordial character. The bridegroom's gift to the bride was a safety bicycle. We understand that the list of presents is a a formidable one.
