ON Monday evening last, February 27th, 1928, a very pretty and unique wedding took place at the United Church parsonage, Bath, when Rev. G.E. Ross, M.A., united in marriage Mr. Fredrick Arthur Shephard, of the City of Kingston to Miss Mary Elspeth Instant, of Adolphustown.

The rare beauty of the youthful bride was enhanced by a charming gown of French beige crepe-de-chine, trimmed with rose, with shoulder bouquet of the same shade, having hose, shoes and hat to match; while her travelling coat was of crimson maple marvello, trimmed with mink taibetine.

The groom was ably supported by Mr. George Davey, Jr., of Bath, while the bride was attended by her sister, Miss Anna Instant, who was becomingly attired in a dress of peach beige crepe-de-chine, trimmed with colonial rose.

After the ceremony, the bridal party repaired to the home of the groom's father where a dainty buffet luncheon was served, and a most enjoyable evening spent under the parental roof.

The happy couple motored the same evening to Kingston, and will visit other Eastern points, and on their return will reside at Adolphustown.

A Joyous Wedding

The Marriage of Major Short and Miss Carruthers - A Popular Event.

At half past eleven o’clock this morning the Rev. M. W. Maclean, of Belleville, cousin of the bride, united in marriage Major Charles J. Short, of “B” Battery, R. C. A., and Miss Carruthers, eldest daughter of John Carruthers Esq., of this city.  The ceremony was performed at “Annandale,” the beautiful residence of the bride’s father, and was of a very quiet nature, the only guests being immediate relatives of the bride and the groom’s brothers-in-arms. The Major wore his full dress uniform, and was attended by Captain Sheppard, A. D. C. to Lieutenant-Governor Robitaille, Quebec, also in uniform.  The bridesmaids were Miss Maud Carruthers, sister of the bride, and Miss Gunn, her cousin.

THE LADIES DRESSES

The bride was dressed in white satin brimmed with Valencia lace and orange blossoms:  ornaments, diamonds.

Miss Maud Carruthers - White lace over pink satin;  diamond ornaments and pink rosebuds.

Miss Gunn - White China crape and lace;  pink rosebuds.

Mrs. Carruthers, mother of the bride - Garnet velvet, white lace, and diamonds.

Mrs. J. Bell Carruthers - White satin, pearl trimmings, diamond ornaments.

Mrs. A. Gunn - Black and gold lace;  gold ornaments.

Miss Matthews, cousin of the bride - White muslin and lace.

Miss Burpee, St. John, N.B. - White muslin, white flowers; gold ornaments.

The band of “B” Battery was stationed on the lawn, and immediately after the ceremony performed Mendellsohn’s  Wedding March.

The guest invited from the city were:  Mr. and Mrs. Gunn, and Masters Gunn, Mr. and the Misses Matthews, Mr., Mrs. and the Masters Craig, Mr and Mrs G. Davidson, the Rev. M. W. and Mrs. Maclean, Miss Ellie Maclean, Mr and Mrs T. Briggs, Dean and Miss Lyster, , Hon. Geo. A. and Mrs. Kirkpatrick, Col, and Mrs. Montizambert, Dr. and Mrs. Neilson, Major and Mrs. Fraser, Capt. and Mrs. Imlah, Capt. Farley, Capt. Rutherford, Capt. Fages, and Messrs Nelles, Hesketh, Benson and Thompson.

The bride received a large number of very beautiful and costly presents, tokens of the high esteem in which the happy couple are held by all their friends.  Nature also was propitious and donned her most attractive attire for the occasion, the sun shining brightly and filling all the land with joy and gladness, an indication, we trust, of a happy and joyous journey through life.

In the afternoon the party repaired to the Cape boat, accompanied by their friends, who remained with them on the Pierrepont until it was time for her to start.  The soldiers left the barrocks with ropes for the purpose of pulling the carriage with the newly-wedded couple to the wharf, but were too late, the latter having driven down before they arrived.  They then went in double time to the wharf and boarding the steamer several got the Major on their shoulders and carried him around the dock, followed by the remainder of the men cheering all the while.  After landing him again a general hand shaking was indulged in and all sorts of congratulations were extended towards him.  After the friends and relatives again bade good-bye, the steamer, with her flags flying, sailed out from the dock.  The officers and men of “B” Battalion were again heard from with three cheers for Major and Mrs. Short, and “For he’s a jolly good fellow.”  An old long-legged boot and a slipper were thrown after the party on the steamer.

At seven o’clock last evening, Major Short was the recipient of  two very handsome presents from the Garrison and Mounted divisions of “B” Battery. The former was a magnificent gold-lined water pitcher of chased silver, with goblets and ice bowl complete, and bore the inscription:  “Presented to  Major Short by the non-commissioned officers and men of “B” Battery, R. C. A., on the eve of his wedding, with their best wishes.”  The latter was also a handsome silver water pitcher and goblet, bearing the inscription: ”Presented to Major C. J. Short by the non-commissioned officers and men of the Mounted division of “B” Battery, R.C.A.  The presentation was made by Staff-Sergt. Lyndon and Kerley, and was accompanied by an address, which was read by Sergt. Major Lavie.  The Major was very much affected by the kindness of the men, and returned them his sincere thanks.  He appreciated the gifts very highly.

Shortly afterwards, the Major was entertained at dinner by the members and honorary members of the mess, when his health was heartily toasted, and eulogistic speeches were made by Surgeon-Major Neilson and the Hon. M. Kirkpatrick  After dinner the Major was greatly surprised at receiving a congratulatory address from his charger, “King Tom.”  It was in French, nicely printed in gold on a heavy gilt edged arc, and was adored at its head with two beautiful silver moths.

Shortly after midnight, a band consisting of horns, bugles and drums, serenaded Miss Carruthers, and made night hideous with their terrific din.  The music of the big drum was particularly remarkable for its very independent and irregular time, and invited anything but sweet repose.

Major Short’s brother officers gave him a handsome hammered silver smoking tray and a beautiful antique salad bowl, inlaid with silver.  The present was a valuable one and was purchased in new York.

W.E. Kidd, Vicar of the Parish, officiated, and the choir of St. Mary Magdalene sang the choral service.   The bride was lovely in an exquisitely simple Paris gown of soft satin, with bodice and three tier minaret of ninon with crystal trimming and veil of Limerick lace.  She carried a shower bouquet of orchids and valley lilies, and wore a diamond pendant, the gift of the groom.  The maid of honor, Miss Helen Herrington, wore crepe de chene in a lemon green shade that was most becoming.  Touches of shadow lace, a black picture hat of velvet and Chantilly lace, and an armful of Killarney roses and lilies of the valley, completed a beautiful costume.  The bridesmaids were also beautifully gowned, Miss Luella Hall being in pink brocaded satin with bodice of shadow lace and rhinestone trimming, and Miss Dorothy Walker in Natier blue crepe, also with shadow lace bodice.  The gowns were made with the same draped effect, and with each maid carrying Killarney roses and wearing a black hat such as the maid of honor wore, nothing could have been more effective.  The bridesmaids received vanity cases of Cloissonne from the groom.  The bride was given away by her father and Mr. Ernest Wigle, of Walkerville was groomsman.  The ushers were Dr. Garnett Greer, of Peterboro’, Mr. Hubert Ryan, Kingston, Mr. Henry Lovell, Toronto, and Mr. Edward Wood, Kingston.  Each was given a fraternity pin by the groom.  While the bridal party were in the vestry, Mr. Dan. Cameron, of Belleville, sang “Because,” his splendid voice rendering the music and words most touchingly.  After the service the bridal party received with Mr. and Mrs. Herrington at their home.  The bride’s mother was charming in taupe charmeuse with minaret effect in lace and ninon with trimming of marabou.  She carried lilies of the valley.  The wedding breakfast was served by Toronto eaterers in the dining room, and the presents, which were innumerable and costly, were shown in the library.  Out of town guests were Dr. C. Sneath of Toronto, Miss Morden, of Adrian, Michigan, Miss Gardner, of Belleville, Mr. J. F. Tilley, of Toronto,  Mr. Geo. I. Ham, of California, and Mr. Frank Ryan, Newburgh..  The bride’s travelling gown was of corded silk in rose and taupe, with hat to match.  Mr. and Mrs. Sneath will reside in Toronto on their return from their wedding trip.

WEDDING AT SANDHURST - One of those select events in which the whole community was more than ordinarily interested was solemnized on the 13th, at the residence of Mr. Taverner, Dorland, when Miss Emma Robertson was united in marriage to Mr. Geo. H. Switzer. Although only the immediate friends of the family were in attendance.  The ceremony lacked none of the beauty and dignity commonly associated with more elaborate functions.  The bride is one of the most versatile and talented young ladies of the neighborhood, whose presence lent a grace and a charm to every social gathering.  The groom is one of South Fredericksburgh’s most popular and esteemed young men, who by his genial qualities and industry has won an acknowledged place in the public favor.  The ceremony was performed  by  the Rev. R. Allin, Conway, the pastor of both the young people.  The happy couple left on the noon train for Niagara Falls, Buffalo and other Western points.  The hearty and general good wishes of their many friends and acquaintances accompany them on their trip and an equally warm welcome awaits their return to their future home at Conway.
