Much interest was taken in a wedding which was solemnised (by special licence) in Badsey church Saturday last, the bride being Miss Maude Naomi Cull, third daughter of Mr & Mrs J. Cull, of The Sumachs, Badsey, and the bridegroom Mr Arthur Norman Harrison, second son of Mr & Mrs T. Harrison, of The Priory, Alcester. The service was conducted by the Rev. W.C. Allsebrook. The bride, who wore a motor costume, was attended by her sister (Miss Laura Cull) as bridesmaid; Mr T.V. Harrison (brother of the bridegroom) acted as best man and gave the bride away. After the ceremony there was a reception at the residence of the bride’s parents, and later in the day Mr & Mrs Harrison left in a motor bicycle and side-car for a short honeymoon at Monmouth and the Wye valley. As Mrs Harrison was a soldier’s bride, she was the recipient of numerous half-crowns for luck, among the many other useful and handsome presents. The bridegroom is in the A.S.C. as a motor transport artificer.
