Her Brussels net veil over pale pink tulle was worn Madonna fashion, and she carried a bouquet of white sweet peas and tuberoses. There were two bridesmaids, Misses Ruby Bruce (sister of the bride) and Ivy Cossart (sister of bridegroom), who were frocked alike in eau de Nil mariette made in bolero effect. They wore summer felt hats of the same shade, showing a pink rose under the brim, and they carried bouquets of pink gerberas, sweet peas, and carnations. Mr. R. Cossart was best man, and Mr. V. Marshall groomsman, Mrs. P. Bruce (mother of the bride) chose a frock of black satin and georgette, relieved with amber. She wore a black Baku hat, and carried a bouquet of bronze dahlias. Mrs. G. Cossart (mother of bridegroom) wore a black velour hat, with her frock of black mariette touched with shell pink, and she carried a bouquet of autumn-toned dahlias. At the conclusion of the ceremony a reception was held at the Cafe Alexandra. On leaving for the honeymoon, which will be spent in Sydney, Mrs. Cossart wore an ensemble of navy blue crepe de Chine, and blue velvet beretta.2,3,4,5
