FASHIONABLE MARRIAGE AT NARBERTH. The little town of Narberth was all astir on Tuesday, the occasion being the marriage of Miss Emma Florence Lewis, the youngest daughter of Mr Thomas Lewis, solicitor, with Mr G. L. Mat- thews, solicitor, London. The weather, unfor- tunately, proved unpropitious, but, despite atmos- pheric influences. the inhabitants did their utmost to affirm the simple truth that "all went merry as a marriage bell." Triumphal arches spanned the streets at various intervals from the bride's resi- dence to the church, and the mottoes and banners were both lavish and appropriate. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. W. Wilson, M.A., rector of the parish, assisted by the Rev. W. D. Phillips, of Crunwear, Prebendary of St. David's, the church being filled to overflowing. Miss Wilson played a voluntary on the organ before and after the service. Mr John H. James, Merthyr, acted as best man. The trousseaux of the bride and her bridesmads were supplied by a Parisian milliner, and the bouquets of flowers were from Covent Garden. The bride looked very charming in a dress which con- sisted of jupe of white muslin with lace flounce bodice, and train of brocade lined with satin, and an exquisite Brussels lace veil and wreath of orange blossoms fastened with gold pins, the gift of the bride's mother. The bride also wore a gold collar, the gift of the bridegroom. On the wedding party emerging from the church the horses were taken out and the carriage containing the newly married pair was drawn by a number of enthusi- astic admirers to the residence of Mr Lewis, whose popularity and charitable disposition has been pro- verbial. The wedding presents (over 100 in num- ber) were both varied and costly. The happy pair left by the mail train for Gloucester en Fonte for Brussels, where the honeymoon is to be spent. Firearms were discharged during the day, and in the evening a bonfire was lit.
