LOUDTLV —WILLS. On tho 31st nit., by the Rev. Father Delaney, at the residence of her sister, Mrs C. R. Raines, Arthur, youngest son of J. Louden, Esq., of Mataura, was married to Angela, youngest daughter of the late Mr George Wills, of this town. The bride, who was given away by her brother-in-law, Air C. (!. Raines, looked charming in a costume of satin-faced navy bine cloth, and wore a very pretty shaded green hat. Instead of the customary bouquet she carried a magnificent ivory prayerbook with gold initialled clasps, which was a gift of the bridegroom. She was attended by Aliss Leona Hogue, who looked sweet in a full costume of cream taffeta, the bodice of which was particularly hidden by a beautiful Limerick lace bolero. She wore a prettily-trimmed “ As-you-like-it” hat, which contrasted in almost perfect sympathy with her dress, and in her blouse she wore a very pretty moonstone pin with heart and wishbone attached, this being a present of the bridegroom. Air Davies, cousin of the bridegroom, acted as best man, and after the wedding breakfast had been discussed the happy couple left at the 4.15 train for Clinton, from whence they left for Wellington, there to spend their honeymoon. The presents, which were both costly and numerous. included several substantial cheques, thus testifying to the popularity of the happy couple.
