DressAfford fine wedding garments with lace sleeves

My grandparents got married in the Dallarnil Hall.

A very nice wedding took place in the Dallarnil Hall on 8th December, when Ethel, second daughter of Mr and Mrs G Faint of Dallarnil was married to Mr A O McCloskey, of Kyamba, Sydney. The hall was nicely decorated by friends of the bride. The bridal couple stood under a beautiful floral bell and arch of asparagus and bridal ferns, the work of the bride's sister in law. The bride looked charming as she entered the hall on the arm of her father who gave her away. Her gown was a nice Jap silk, prettily made and trimmed with silk embossed all over lace and insertion, two silk tassels, and horse shoes of Lilies of the Valley, and sprays of orange blossom. She also wore a wreath of orange blossom, and a veil (kindly lent by Mrs A Mayne and Mrs E Emery) and carried a bouquet of cream roses, white carnations, and bridal fern, with white satin streamers. She was attended by two bridesmaids,Miss Faint, (sister), and Miss D Faint (niece). The chief bridesmaid's dress was a heliotrope Rosalind-de-Soie trimmed with white lace and insertion, and she carried a bouquet of heliotrope flowers and asparagus fern, with white ribbon DressAfford fine wedding garments with lace sleeves
streamers. Miss D Faint wore a dress of Shantung silk, trimmed silk insertion and pale blue ribbon sash, and carried a bouquet of blue flowers, asparagus fern, with pale blue ribbon streamers.
The bridegroom was supported by Mr J Walker as best man, and master Fred Faint (nephew of the bride) as groomsman. The bridegrooms present to the bride and bridesmaids were costly gold brooches, and the bride's present to the bridegroom was a pair of handsome gold sleeve links. After refreshments had been partaken of and the usual toasts honoured the room was then cleared for dancing, the splendid music being supplied by the local orchestra, which is a credit to our district:- About 140 persons were present, and all seemed to be enjoying themselves till the small wee hours of morn. The presents were costly and useful, and too numerous to mention. Maryborough Chronicle, Wide Bay and Burnett Advertiser (Qld. : 1860 - 1947) Wednesday 23 December 1914 p 6 Article
