DISTRICT NEWS, BADSEY – PERKINS-MOISEY WEDDING
A wedding of much local interest took place at Badsey on Wednesday last. The contracting parties were members of two well-known and respected families, viz, Miss Julia Louisa, daughter of Mr & Mrs George Moisey of Bredon View, Badsey, and Mr John William, son of Mr & Mrs J C Perkins of Station Road, Bretforton. The Vicar (Canon Allsebrook) officiated.
The bride was tastefully attired in a dress of apricot [?] with net gown and bridal veil of silk net to match. The bridesmaid was Miss Edith Moisey, a sister of the bride, who was dressed in lime green georgette and carried a bouquet of sheaf yellow tulips and maidenhair fern. There were three pages who looked very pretty in gold velvet trousers with Shantung silk blouses. They were Masters Kenneth Perkins (the bridegroom’s brother), George James (bride’s nephew) and Peter Shovelton of Evesham (the bride’s friend).
The bride was given away by her father, and the village bells rung a merry peal as a compliment to the bridegroom who is a well-known bell ringer. During the service the bride’s nephew presented her with a silver horseshoe.
The bride has been an active member for some years of the local branch of the GFS. A reception was held at the bride’s home, where many presents were on view, which included an ivory hymn and prayer book from the GFS, a dinner service from Messrs H Burlingham & Co, and an oak 8-day clock from the local bell-ringers. The newly-married couple’s future home will be at Blenheim Cottage, Badsey.
