Gransden Weddings- Baker- Gransden

I found another Gransden wedding. I don’t know how I missed this one, particularly as I have two photos from this wedding. But, somehow I missed it. So, now that I have found the report I am putting the details up.

BAKER—GRANSDON. (spelling in the paper)

Holy Trinity Church was the scene of a very pretty wedding on Saturday, 10th February, when the marriage was solemnised between Thora Elaine Gransden, of Prince St., Orange, and Keith Neville Baker, youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. A. H. Baker, of Edward Street, Orange. The bride made a charming picture as she entered the church on the arm of her brother, W.O. Garth Gransden, RAAF, being attired in a frock of white lace over satin and featuring a long train falling gracefully from the waistline. The hand-embroidered net veil was held in place by a halo of pink and cream gladioli. She carried a bouquet of similarly toned gladioli and fern. The bride was attended by her sister. Miss Shirley Gransden, who was gowned in a full-length frock of white crepe and white organdie picture hat. She carried a bouquet of red roses tied with red tulle. The duties of best man were carried out by the bridegroom’s brother, Mr. Tom Baker. During the
signing of the register, Mrs. Weathersten gave a sweet rendition of “Oh,
Promise Me.” The reception was held in the Masonic Hall, the 60 guests being received by the bride’s mother, wearing a smart black beaded frock and hat, with a shoulder spray of deep red roses, carnations and fern. She was assisted by the bridegroom’s mother, who chose a smart pink frock, with black accessories, and a shoulder spray of pink tiger lilies, frangipani and fem. The Rev. A. G. Halliday occupied the chair, and pride of place on the table was given to the beautiful two-tier wedding cake. It was regretted that the bride’s father was unable to obtain leave to be present. Later the happy young couple, who were the recipients of many useful gifts, cheques and congratulatory telegrams, left by train for Sydney, where the honeymoon is being spent. For travelling, the bride chose a green tailored summer suit with black accessories.
The future home of the happy couple will be at Orange.
