The cross-over bodice was draped with Brussels lace, and opened over a vest of finely tucked net and lace, a large satin rose appearing en corsage.

The bride was attended by her sisters, Isabel and Maud, as bridesmaids. They wore pretty white silk frocks with sprays of orange blossom and white droop hats trimmed with rosettes of silk, Miss Isabel's being wreathed with pink flowers.
