    • Wedding at Ryburgh. Beardsworth--Tatham.
      Of great interest to Ryburgh and district was the wedding at St. Andrew's Church, Great Ryburgh, on Wednesday, when the bride was Miss Betha Wenefrid Tatham, younger daughter of the Rev. F. H. and Mrs. Tatham, and the bridegroom Flight-Lieut. Herbert Ivo Trentham Beardsworth, eldest son of Mrs. Beardsworth and the late Mr. H. A. Beardsworth, of Muswell Hill. The bridegroom saw service in Mesopotamia during the war with the Air Force, and also in France and Russia, and after the war in Iraq. The Rev. F. H. Tatham, father of the bride, performed the marriage service, assisted by the Rev. W. D. Boycott, Rector of Upton, who gave the address. The service was fully choral, the organist being Mrs. J. A. Shaw, of Foulsham, and formerly organist at Ryburgh Church for ten years, until her marriage about a month ago. On the bride's arrival in the Church the hymn "O Perfect Love," to a special tune; Psalm lxvii, to a chant by Tallis, from Beethoven; before the address "O Holy Spirit, Lord of Grace," and while the registers were signed "Now thank we all our God" were sung. As the bridal party left the Church, Mendelssohn's "Wedding March" was played. The bride was attired in a dress of white georgette, with diamante trimming. Her veil of old Limerick lace, which belonged to her grandmother, was worn by the bride's mother, Mrs. F. H. Tatham, on the train of her own wedding dress. The bride was given away by her mother, her brothers being all abroad. She wore a pendant designed by her father. The bridesmaids were Miss D. M. H. Tatham, sister of the bride, and Miss M. Beardsworth, second sister of the bridegroom. They wore sunrise Celanese taffeta dresses, broad pan hats, and bronze shoes. They carried bouquets of tawny chrysanthemums, and tinted leaves. The bride carried a bouquet of Duchess of York and Emma Wright rosebuds, and white heather. The best man was Flight-Lieut. Burton, R.A.F. A reception was held in the Rectory Barn, and later the bride and bridegroom left for the honeymoon, on a motor car. The bride's travelling dress was a dark blue coat and skirt, felt hat, and wolf fur. The Church was decorated by Mrs. H. J. Smith, Mill House, Great Ryburgh. [Fakenham & Dereham Times, 09 Nov 1928]
