MARRIAGE OF MISS LLEWLLIN. Rejoicings in the neighbourhood of Llanfrechfa were great & enthusiastic on Tuesday last,the occasion being the marriage Of Miss Mary Llewellin, eldest daughter of David Llewellin, Esq., of Bryn Gomer, near Pontypool, to Edwyn Jones,Esq, barrister-at-law. The event was one which gave rise to universal feelings of pleasure among those who had long known the bride, and others in the district who had frequently benefited by her generosity. Under such auspices it may well be understood that the congratulations were warm and hearty. The marriage took place at the parish church of Llaufrechfa, the service being conducted by the Rev David Griffiths, M.A. Vicar of Resolven and Glyncorrwg, (cousin of the Bride), assisted by the Rev J. Forster, M.A., Vicar of Llaufrechfa. The service was choral; and the surpliced choir, while siuging a processional hymn, conducted the bride and bridegroom to the chancel steps, where the first part of the service was performed after the singing of the second hymn, the service was continued at the altar. On the conclu- sion of the service, when the wedding party adjourned to the vestry, the Wedding March was very skilfully played by the organist; this was immediately followed by the merry ringing of the magnificent peal of bells. The bride wore a rich cream-coloured silk dress, with veil, and a wreath of orange blossoms. Miss Ada Llew- ellin, the bridesmaid, wore a dress of pink satin, trim- med with silk brocade. The best man was Mr Peat, of Gray's Inn. After the breakfast at Bryn Gomer, the bride and bridegroom proceeded by the 4.0 train to London en route for Italy. Arches of ever- greens were erected near Llanfrechfa Grange and Mr Maddy's, and there was a large display of flags, &c., near the Upper Cock Inn. So far as the family arrangements were concerned the wedding was one of a strictly private nature, but this did not pre- vent spontaneous testifications of the numberless good-wishes of the resident neighbours. The pre- sents were numerous and costly, and were accompanied with the most sincere hopes of the douors for the happiness and prosperity of the bride and bridegroom. In the evening, Mr Llewellin, together with several friends, and the members of his professional staff, were entertained at a sumptuous banquet given at the Clar- ence Hotel, Mr W. Sowell providing an excellent repast in his usual first-class style. The chair was worthily occupied by Captain Llewellin, brother of the bride, and the health of the bride and bridegroom was feel- ingly proposed by Mr Kennedy, and as it may be need- less to observe, was drunk with every honor. Among the other toasts were Town and Trade of Pontypool and district," given by Mr Morgan and responded to by Mr Sandbrook j The Parents of the bride," neatly proposed by Mr Park hurst, and very appropriately acknowledged by Captain Llewellin, with others of a lesser significance. Music and songs enlivened the i evening, and the celebration of the auspicious event i was well and fitly brought to a close.
