    "Early on the afternoon of the 16th instant St. Patrick's Church, Churchhill, was filled with a large assemblage intent upon witnessing the marriage of Miss Margaret Thompson, daughter of Captain David Thompson, of Chowder Bay, to Mr. Marc Rutty, of Geneva, Switzerland, and of this city. The bride arrived shortly before 2 o'clock, and the ceremony, which was imposingly performed by the Rev. Father Le Rennetel, was at once entered upon. At its conclusion the newly-wedded pair walked down the church and were greeted on all sides by their friends, amid the harmonious sounds of the " Wedding March ", which was played by Mr. W. Asprey. The bridesmaids were - Misses S. Thompson (sister of the bride), S. Lenehan, K. Watson, N. Donnelly, A. MacDonald and F. Dimond. Dr. P. Blackall was the best man and the other groomsmen were Messrs W.J. Whildon, W. Macgregor, R.H. Tween and S. Thompson. The bride was attired in ivory white French faille with a long train trimmed with duchesse lace and orange blossoms, long tuille veil and aigrette fastened witha diamond crescent (gift of the bridegroom). The bridesmaids were dressed in cream Liberty silk, trimmed with bands of peach plush, white felt hats with plumes, and gold bangles set with moonstones (also the bridegroom's present). Black French faille with cream velvet bonnet was worn by the mother of the bride. Mrs. H.H. McKeown wore electric blue ottoman cord, with bonnet to match; Mrs. R. Cooke, "old rose" ottoman cord; Mrs. F. Punch, blue surah; and Mrs. Griffin, ruby silk, with bonnet to match. The wedding breakfast was held at the residence of the bride's parents. About 75 or 80 guests sat down, and afterwards drank the health of the happy couple who, at 6 o'clock left for Bowral. Later on in the evening about 60 additional guests arrived at Chowder and joined the others in celebrating the interesting event."
