    • ARMOUR-TATHAM WEDDING.
      On Thursday, June 22, at 10.30 a.m., at All Saints' Church, Currie, the marriage of Jessica, elder daughter of Mr. and Mrs. S. G. Tatham, "Harpsden," King Island, to Hugh, elder son of Mr. and Ms. Armour, Warrigal, Victoria, was celebrated, Rev. Cloudsdale being the officiating clergyman.
      The bride, who entered the church escorted by her father, wore an attractive ensemble of green wool romaine. The coat, which was without a collar, was worn to the throat, the lapels being worked with Italian quilting. The bride wore a brown felt hat with a rolled brim, and had brown accessories. She carried a bouquet of mixed flowers, the gift of Mrs. P. Tatham.
      The wedding was quiet, only a few old friends gathering to see the ceremony. Friends of the bride had decorated the church with masses of beautiful flowers.
      After the ceremony breakfast was given at Dolin's Hotel, where Mrs. S. G. Tatham assisted the bride and groom to receive their guests.
      Mrs. Tatham wore a wine-coloured suit with a teal blue cravat. Her hat and accessories were wine-coloured, and she carried an 1830 posy.
      About 20 guests attended the breakfast in the dining room of the hotel, which had been decorated with green leaves and spring bulbs. The tables were arranged in a T shape, the wedding cake holding pride of place. The Rev. Cloudsdale proposed the loyal toast, and then that of the bride and groom. Mr. P. Snodgrass read the sheaf of telegrams, and later proposed the health of the bride's parents and the bridegroom's parents. The bridegroom and Mr. S. G. Tatham replied briefly.
      Mr. and Mrs. Armour left by plane for Victoria to make their home at Warrigal.
