She was attended by three bridesmaids, Miss Grace Price (sister of the bridegroom), Mrs. Amy Hopkinson (sister of the bride), and Miss Ada Bedford (niece of the bride), who were prettily attired in dresses of crepe-de-chene with figured insertions. The bride’s bouquet consisted of June roses and white heather. The bridesmaids had bouquets of pink carnations, except the youngest, who carried a French basket containing white carnations.
The best man was Mr. William Stenton (cousin of the bridegroom), of Woodseats, Sheffield.
A reception was held after the ceremony.
