CARRIAGE OF LORD WOLVERTON AND LADY EDITH WARD. A lnrge congregation assembled in St. Mary Ahbott's Church, Kensington, London, recently, to witness the marriage of Lord Wolverton and the Lady Edith Wsrd, only daughter of Georgina Countess of Duilley and the late Earl of Dudley. The beautiful church was very handsomely deoor- ated for the occasion, the arches of the rood screen bring- outlined with white lilac, lilies of various kinds, chrysanthemums, and other white jiowers from the conservatories at Iwerne, Lord Wolvcr ton's Dorsetshire seat. The choir stalls and Communion Table were slso effectively adorned, and groups of flowering bamboo were placed about the chancel. With the exception of the seats facing the chancel reserved for the friends of the bride and hridegrcom, the largo and handsome building was filled with spectators long before the hour lixfd for the ceremony, two o'clock. The bridesmaids, who took up their position near the west door, were Miss Blanche Forbes, cousin of the bride; the Hon. Alexandra Bertie, ilnuKhter of Lord and Lady Norreys, and niece of the bridegroom the Ladies Alice and Mary Montagu, t win daughters of the Duchess of Manchester; Lady Sophie Cadogan, daughter of Earl and Countess Cadognn and Lady Tlieodosia Acheson, daughter of the Earl and Countess of Gosford. They were charm- ingly drecaed in white accordion-pleated grenadine over whito satin with bunches of Parma violets at the throat and waist, and white satin collars and niishes. Their large violet velvet hats were trimmed with ostrich feathers of the same oolour and Parma violets with a gardenia between, and they carried shower bouquets of dark violets. The bridegroom presented each with a diamond bar brooch, with a large ruby pondant from one end. A few minutes two o'clock his RO;1\1 Highness the Prince of Wales arrived, accompanied by Captain Holford,aiul was conducted to a seat facing the chanoel beside the Couutess (Georgina) of Dudley. The bride entered by the west door, and was led up the nave te the chancel by her brother, the Earl of Dudley, who gave her away. The clergy and choir preceded the bridal procession singing the hymn, The voice that breathed o'er Eden." The bride wore a dress of rich white satin, trimmed round the hem with a trail of orange blossoms and myrtle, with a girdle and ohatelaine of the same, and collar of old lace. She wore a full wreath of real orange blossoms and a tulle veil. Her only ornaments were a diamond lizard brooch and a necklace of two rows of peals, the gifts of the bridegroom, as was also her shower bouquet of white flowers.Behind the bride followed at two paoes —the Hon.

They were charmingly attired in white satin Vandyck costumes, slashed with mauve satin and trimmed with silver bullion; their white satin cloaks were lined with mauve,and they worelarge white felt hats with ostrich feathers, and mauve øhoeø and stockings. The bride presented each with a diamond and ruby scarf pin. Lord Wolverton was attended by Mr. Cecil Grenfell as best man. The Hon. and Rev. Edward Carr Glyn (vicar of Kensington, ohapliu to the Queen, and uncle of the bridegroom) performed the cere- mony, assisted by the Rev. Piers L. Claughton (rector of Hutton, Brentwood, Essex) cousin to the bride. Before the address the hymn" 0, love, who formedst me to wear," was sung, after which Mr. Carr Glyn delivered an address. While the registers were being signed, "Hark, hark, my soul! angelic songs are swelling," was sung by the choir and congregation.
