Wedding Bells

The home of Mr. Hugh Wellwood, South Rawdon, Hants Co. was the scene of an interesting event on Wednesday, May 28th, when his daughter, Alice, was united in matrimony to Miles Grant Tupper, of Scotts Bay, (former pastor of the Rawdon Church).

The parlor was filled with the nearest relatives and friends of both bride and groom. At four o’clock the strains of the grand wedding march, which was played by Miss Reta Tupper, sister of the groom, and Miss Viola Wellwood, sister of the bride, heralded the coming of the bridal party.

The bride, who was given away by her father, looked charming in a gown of white silk with lace trimmings, and pretty bouquet of pansies. The ceremony was performed by Rev. E. D. P. Parry. After hearty congratulations were received and the wedding supper served, the happy couple drove to Windsor, where they were kindly greeted by their awaiting relatives and friends. The bride’s travelling dress was of grey cloth with white silk vest and hat and gloves to match. When the bride and groom return from this tour they go to Scotts Bay, where a reception will be held at the home of the groom’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Herbert Tupper, where many relatives and friends will assemble to greet them. After a few weeks spent there they leave for Massachusetts where their honeymoon will be completed.

Mr. Tupper is a graduate of Horton Collegiate Academy, Wolfville, and will commence his Theological course at MacMaster University, Toronto, the following October.

Mrs. Tupper will be much missed from Rawdon, where she was a general favourite.

The number of presents received testify to the high esteem in which Mr. and Mrs. Tupper are held. The many friends of both bride and groom join in wishing them a long happy and useful life – Hants Journal.
