O’BRYAN – ALLEN WEDDING
A bridal gown of white chantilly lace over nylon tulle was chosen by Patricia Charlotte Allen for her marriage to Alton Caswell O’Bryan at St. Patrick’s last Saturday.
Patricia is the elder daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Clive Allen, of Dunolly, and the groom is the second son of Mr. and Mrs. Vince O’Bryan, of Mayfield.
As the couple entered the church the Children of Mary formed a guard of honour.
The Rev. Father Troy performed the ceremony, and the bride was given away by her father.
Her full length veil was of nylon tulle and she carried a bouquet of gardenias, gladioli carnations and frangipani tied with satin ribbon.
Miss Beryl Spinks was the bridesmaid, and the miniature bridesmaid was the bride’s sister, Miss Pam Allen.
Beryl wore a frock of blue organdie embossed with white, and Pam a frock of pink organdie embossed with white. They wore silver curvettes trimmed with blue and pink lace. Their bouquets were of gladioli, carnations, roses, tied with blue and pink tulle ribbons.
The best man was Mr. Laurie Rootes.
Miss Joan Kime played the organ as the register was signed, and Mrs. Arie Groot sang “Ave Maria.'”
After the wedding ceremony Nuptial Mass was celebrated. Hymns were sung by pupils of St. Catherine’s College, where the bride was formerly a student.
The church was decorated by the Sisters of Mercy with gladioli and white shasta daisies.
The guests were received at the reception, held in the Band Hall by Mrs. Allen and Mrs. O’Bryan.
Mrs. Allen wore a frock of ming blue crepe with a shoulder spray of pink orchids and carnations and black accessories.
Mrs. O’Bryan wore a frock of navy blue crepe with a shoulder spray of pink carnations and stocks and navy and white accessories.
The wedding cake was made and decorated by Mrs. Rutherford.
