On wednesday a pretty wedding and one that created a great deal of interest,
was celebrated at St. Kentigern's Church, Aspatria, when Caroline, eldest
daughter of Mrs William FREAR, Station Hotel, Aspatria, was married to Mr Leonard
NEWTON, manager of the Bradford Colliery, Manchester, second son of Mr James
NEWTON, Buckley, near Chester. The bride looked charming in a dress of white
silk crepe-de-chine with large white chiffon hat. She carried a bouquet of
lilies and wore a gold pendant and diamond ring the gifts of the bridegroom. She
was given away by her step-father, Mr W. FREAR. The bridesmaids were Miss
Clara FREAR, step-sister of the bride, and Miss WILSON, Hayton House, who wore
dresses of white silk with green sashes and black velvet picture hats. They
carried shower bouquets of pink roses and wore gold opal brooches presented by
the bridegroom. The Rev F.L.H. MILLIARD conducted the service, at the close of
which he addressed the happy pair. Miss COBB, organist, played appropriate
music as the bridal part entered the church and Mendelssohn's wedding march as
they proceeded to the vestry. Leaving the church amidst showers of confetti,
the party proceeded to the residence of the bride's parents, where an
excellent breakfast ws partaken of. Later in the afternoon the happy couple left for
London where the honeymoon will be spent. The numerous and costly presents on
view showed that the young couple have many well-wishers.
