WRIGHT - WEIR
A pretty wedding was witnessed at St. John's Church, Bigrigg, on Easter Monday, at which the Rev. I. EARNSHAW, Egremont officiated. The principals were Miss. Beatrice WEIR, elder daughter of Mr. and Mrs. WEIR, Penzance Street, Morr Row, and Mr. Richard WRIGHT, of 36, Burns Road, Fleetwood, third son of Mr. and Mrs. J. WRIGHT.
The bride who was given away by her father, was attired in a lovely dress of fawn satin and a hat to match, and she carried a bouquet of pink carnations. She was accompanied by the bridegroom's sister, Miss. Nellie WRIGHT and her own sister, Miss. Thelma WEIR and Miss. Marjorie WRIGHT, niece of the bridegroom, as bridesmaids, and they wore dresses of lavender satin, the two former wearing black hats, and the latter a gold tinsel hat. They carried bouquets of lavender tulips and wore silver necklets, the gifts of the bridegroom. The best man was Mr. G. KERSHAW of Fleetwood.
The brides gift to the bridegroom was a set of gold studs and tie pin, whilst the bridegroom's gift to the bride was a dark stone marten fur. After the ceremony a reception was held at the Public Hall, Moor Row.
The bride was employed at the Moor Row Post Office, and the bridegroom who formerly worked at the locomotive sheds, Moor Row, and who was recently removed to Irton, is well known in the football circles of West Cumberland, as the popular fullback for the Whitehaven Athletic F. C. To mark their appreciation of his valuable services, he was presented with a handsome clock.
