Newspaper Article 1899 – Nelson-Price


A very pretty wedding took place on April 22nd, when Miss Mabel Price, third daughter of Mr Alfred H. Price, of Tangarewa, Ashley Clinton, was married to Mr George Nelson, third son of Mr William Nelson, of Waikoko, Tomoana, Hawke’s Bay.

The bride, who was given away by her father, looked charming in a handsome cream chine silk gown, very prettily trimmed with lace.  She wore a beautiful veil and orange blossoms, and carried a magnificent shower bouquet of cream roses, orange blossoms, and maiden-hair fern.

The bridesmaid, Miss Gertrude E. Price, looked very pretty in white muslin over yellow silk, trimmed with insertion and Valenciennes lace, pale yellow sash with long ends. She carried a beautiful bouquet of yellow and pink roses and maiden-hair fern.

The bride and bridesmaid’s bouquets were the artistic work of Miss Maud FitzRoy, of Hastings.

Mr Oswald Nelson acted as best man.

As the wedding party left after the ceremony, Mrs C. H. St. Hill played the Wedding March most tastefully.

The guests then adjourned to the dining-room, where afternoon tea was partaken of. Later in the afternoon Mr and Mrs George Nelson left for Ashcott, where they will spend their honeymoon before taking up their residence at Tomoana.
