Mr. W.A. Martin and Miss Violet Murray.
On Saturday at 8 a.m.at the Cathedral of the Good Shepherd, a pretty wedding was solemnised between Miss Violet Helen Murray, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J.H. Murray, of Singapore, and Mr. William Allardice Martin, of the Prison Dept., Straits Settlements, only son of Mr. and Mrs. W.W. Martin, of Glasgow.
The bride, who was given away by her father, looked charming in an Early Victorian frock of satin with the train was also of satin with a lover's knot of georgette and orange blossoms, and carried a bouquet of white lilies and clematis. The bridesmaid was Miss Molly Murray, sister of the bride, who was becomingly gowned in blue satin charmeuse with hat to match. The duties of the best man were performed by Mr. E.J. Venables, also of the Prison Dept., a friend of the bridegroom.
Large numbers of friends were present both at the Cathedral service at which Rev. Father Ruaudel officiated, and at the reception which was held afterwards at the home of the bride. The bride's going away frock was of pale green satin and georgette with hat to match.
