A VERY PRETTY WEDDING WAS SOLEMISED AT THE Wesleyan Church, Castlethorpe, on Friday, July 20th, when, before a large number of relatives and friends, Frances Charlotte Cowley, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. David Cowley, and Jasper Ernest Green, the elder son of Mr. and Mrs. J. Green, both of Castlethorpe were united. The families of both bride and bridegroom have for many years been connected with the Wesleyan Church. The bride, who was tastefully attired in a dress of ivory crepe de chine, trimmed with pearls, and a bridal veil and orange blossom, and carrying a shower bouquet of red and white carnations and white heather (a gift of the bridegroom), entered the church, which was prettily decorated on the arm of her father. She was attended by three bridesmaids, the Misses V. Collett, Doreen Cameron and Nora Cowley. The elder bridesmaid who was a college friend of the bride), wore a dress of beige crepe de chine, with hat to match, and the two little girls daintily dressed in pale blue crepe de chine dresses, and wore wreaths of solver leaves, and each carried bouquets of cream roses which were gifts of the bridegroom. The service was choral, the hymns, “Lead us, Heavenly Father, lead us” and “O Perfect Love,” being sung. During the signing of the register the “Wedding March” was played. The officiating minister was the Rev. H. H. Adams, of Wolverton, Circuit Minister. After the ceremony a reception was held in the Wesleyan schoolroom, and was attended by about forty guests. During the afternoon the happy couple left for North Wales, where the honeymoon is being spent. They were the recipients of a large number of valuable and useful presents. The catering for the reception was in the hands of Mr. Valentine, of Northampton, and the bouquets were made by Clarke & Sons, Castlethorpe
