MARRIAGE OF LORD INGESTRE. It would be almost impossible to imagine a prettier wedding than that of Lord Ingestre, son of the Earl of Shrewsbury, and Miss Winifred Paget, daughter of the late Lord Alexander Paget, which took place on Saturday at the fashionable London church of St. Peter, Eaton-square. The church was decorated with palms and white flowers, and lined by non-commissioned officers and men of the Royal Horse Guards, to which regiment Lord Ingestre belongs. The officiating clergy were the Bishop of Lichfield, the Sub-Dean of the Chapels Royal, the Rev. Arthur Talbot (cousin of the bridegroom), and the Rev. J. Storrs, of St. Peter's. The Hon. Harold Brassey, a brother officer of the bridegroom, acted as best man. The bride was given away by her brother, Mr. C. H. A. Paget, and on arrival at the church was pre- sented with a bouquet tied with the regimental colours by the non-commissioned officers in charge of the guard of honour, on behalf of his comrades. The wedding-dress was of soft white satin, embroidered in true-lover's knots and sprays of wheat-heads, wrought in silver, pearls and diamonds. The long court train fell from the shoulders, fastened by hanging chiffon flowers, and was composed of silver tissue under chiffon, caught 'with chiffon flowers. The lace veil fell over a tiara of orange blossoms, and the ornament was a pendant of diamonds, with a black pearl, the gift of Lord Ingestre. The tram was held by the Hon. Maynard Greville and Master Brassey, dressed in ivory satin Charles 1. cos- tumes, with cavalier capes lined with red satin, matching their shoes and stockings. There were six bridesmaids-two grown up, Lady Violet Talbot (the bridegroom's sister) and Miss Staple- I ton Cotton (the bride's cousin)—and four children, Lady Diana Somerset, Miss Joan Poynder, Miss Gladys and Miss May Beckett. The two elder wore ivory satin Henrietta Maria costumes, with scolloped basques and skirts and lace Vandyke collars, and large white cavalier hats, with red ostrich plumes, and the little girls had satin frocks of the same period, coming to the ground, with lace aprons and close fitted lace caps. All wore red shoes and stockings and had bunches of red roses tucked into the corsages, in honour of St. George's Day. They carried prayer-books bound in brown leather, the gifts of the bride, the bridegroom's gifts being old paste buckles. After the ceremony Lady Alex- ander Paget held a reception at 8, Chesterfield- gardens, lent by Sir John and Lady Dickson Poynder, at which a crowd of distinguished guests were present. Later in the afternoon Lord and Lady Ingestre left for Warwick Castle.
