A pretty wedding, which attracted a large number of the villagers, took place at the Parish Church on Saturday last, when the officiating clergy were the Vicar (Rev W C Allsebrook, RD) and the Rev G S Stubbs of Evesham.  The bride was Gertrude Evelyn, only daughter of Mr William and Mrs Bennett of 10 Belmont Terrace, Badsey, and the bridegroom, Harry, second son of Mrs and the late John Floyd of Old Hill, Staffs.

The bride was attired in a dress of beige georgette with picture hat to match.  She wore court shoes and carried a bouquet of pink carnations and white roses.  The bridesmaids were the Misses Vera Knight and Cynthia Andrews (cousins of the bride), who were dressed in blue crepe-de-chine, with blue hats to match.  Mr William Bennett, an old Badsey Ranger, gave his daughter away, and the bride’s brother made an efficient best man.

A reception, at which there was an attendance of about 30, was held at the home of the bride, where was displayed a number of useful and beautiful presents, which included an oak chimney clock, the gift of the bridegroom’s employer and his wife, Mr & Mrs G J Green of High Street, Evesham.  A silver teapot was given by the bridegroom’s fellow employees.

Mr & Mrs Floyd’s future home will be at 5 Cotswold View, Badsey.
