Newspaper Article 1911 – Jamieson-Reynolds



Holy Trinity Church was artistically decorated yesterday afternoon for the marriage of Miss Lenora (Norah) Reynolds, second daughter of Mr. R. J. Reynolds, “Sandown”, Childers Road, to Mr. John Jamieson, Glenross Station, Hawke’s Bay.  The ceremony, though of a quiet nature, attracted a large congregation of friends.  The bride, who was led to the alter by her father, wore a handsome gown of white satin charmeuse, with a  tunic over-dress of white ninon trimmed with pearls.  The bodice and sleeves were of beautiful old rose point lace, the veil being prettily arranged, and caught with a spray of orange blossoms.  She also carried a beautiful white bouquet. The Ven. Archdeacon H. Williams performed the marriage service.  The bride was attended by Miss Rosamund Reynolds (chief) and little Miss Eve Gaddum as bridesmaids.  The first-named wore a pretty frock of cream net over cream satin, the front panel composed of Venetian lace; large picture hat, with black wing mount and tulle bows.  Her bouquet was small red roses and maiden-hair fern.  The small bridesmaid wore pretty white muslin frock and bonnet, and carried a basket of red roses and maiden-hair ferns. The bridegroom was attended by Mr. Eric Beamish, Hawke’s Bay.  Mrs. Reynolds, mother of the bride, wore a soft grey silk, trimmed with black and pink velvet, grey hat with shaded roses.  She also carried a bouquet of pink roses and grasses, tied with a blue ribbon.  Mrs. Gaddum wore a vieux rose cloth costume, pink hat with small roses.  Mrs. R. U. Burke wore a nattier blue linen costume trimmed with black, and black straw hat with blue osprey.  Mrs. G. Reynolds wore a pink chiffon over old rose satin, the skirt finished with deep hem of same smart mole-colored hat, with white and pink mount.  Mrs. J. Clark wore a handsome frock of moire silk in electric blue shade, handsomely braided, large black hat, with white and black checked feather.
