Given away by her father, the bride wore a full length gown of white figured brocade and circular train, a bouffant veil held by a head-dress of roses, and carried a bouquet of pink roses and stephanotis. She was attended by Miss Marie Rowbottom (bride’s sister), who wore a pink figured brocade dress with a spray of pink and white carnations. The best man was Mr. K. Wiggett (bridegroom’s brother), and the groomsman was Mr. C. J. Heddle.

A reception for 62 guests was held at the Cranworth Hotel, Rotherham. The bride’s mother wore a caramel and lemon coloured Courtelle suit, with brown accessories. The bridegroom’s mother wore a rust coloured suit, with green accessories. The couple, who will live at 148, Freedom Road, Walkley, Sheffield, received a set of bed linen from colleagues at England’s Smart Shoes, Limited.
