25 Jan 1918


A very pretty wedding was solemnised at the Presbyterian Church, Dannevirke, by the Rev. W. Grant, the contracting parties being John William Moisey, only son of Mr and Mrs Moisey, Christchurch, and Miss Hattie Smith, third daughter of Mrs G. Mear. The bride, who was given away by her brother-in-law, Mr J. Maycock, wore a beautiful costume of white silk, with hat to match, and carried an exquisite shower bouquet of choice white blossoms. She was attended by her sister, Miss F. E. Mear, as chief bridesmaid, and also her niece, Miss Pearl Maycock, as second maid. Both looked charming in pink voiles with hats to match, and carried pretty shower bouquets composed of pink and white blossoms. They also wore handsome ruby rings, the bridegroom’s gift. Mr Aveson acted as best man.
