TREGARON. WEDDING.—The marriage of Miss Maggie Morgan, eldest daughter of Mrs Morgan of the Talbot Hotel, and Mr Stephen Jones, 42, Warwick- street, Belgrave-road, London, was solemnised on Wednesday of last week. The bride, who is a native of Tregaron, is well known throughout the district and her genial, pleasant, and social manners have endeared her to all who know her. The bridegroom, up to a few years ago, was an assist- ant chemist at Mr Jones's, the Post Office, and is now in business in London. He is a native of Swyddffynon and, though not so well known at Tregaron as the bride is, during the time he was at Tregaron he was a great favourite amongst those who came in con- tact with him. At the time fixed for the wedding, large crowds of people thronged the streets to see the party going to the chapel and flags and banners were largely displayed and the event celebrated by gun-firing and other forms of marriage rejoicing. The chapel was tastefully decorated for the occasion and when the party arrived it was soon filled. The ceremony was performed by the Rev Morgan Evans, in the presence of Mr Peter Williams, the registrar. Mr William Jones, 35, Askelon-street, Battersea, brother to the bridegroom, acted as best man. The bridesmaids were the Misses Nancy and Cassie Morgan, sisters of the bride, with Miss Eleanor Jones, the Post Office. Miss Foulkes of the Intermediate School played the Wedding March. The bride was charmingly attired in ivory white silk-trimmed chiffon and orange blossoms with tulle veil and a bouquet of lilies of the valleys and roses, with trail. The bridesmaids also were prettily dressed in spotted muslin over mauve silk, with hats to match of white chiffon and feathers. They wore brooches of heart-shaped amthyst stones set in gold which, with the bouquets of chrysanthemums and roses, were the gifts of the bridegroom. The bride was given away by her uncle, Mr J. D. Rowland of Cardiff. After the ceremony at the chapel, the bride's mother held a reception at the Talbot Hotel, the Assembly Room of which had been profusely decorated for the occasion with flags, evergreen, and mottoes. Appropriate speeches were made by Mr J. D. Rowland, the Rev Morgan Evans, Mr Tom Jones (Post Office), and Mr Morgan Morgans. On the toast to the Bride and bridegroom," the bride- groom suitably responded and Mr Dan Jones after- wards gave an excellent rendering of True till Death." In. the evening, at the same place, a large number of guests were entertained when various kinds of amusements were indulged in till a late hour. The happy couple left by the afternoon train for Cardiff en route for Ilfracombe to spend their honeymoon, accompanied by the good wishes of all.
