THE marriage of Miss Mary Violet Grant and Mr William Henry Nelson, of Hawke’s Bay, took place in Wellington on the 5th instant. It was a very quiet wedding, the guests being confined to members of the two families.

THE bridegroom was attended by Mr Montague Nelson as best man, and the bride was attended by two bridesmaids – her sister, Miss Marion Grant, and Miss Menzies.

AT the conclusion of the ceremony the party drove to Laureston, the residence of Mrs Grant.
