The wedding took place at Badsey Parish Church on Monday, the Vicar (Canon W C Allsebrook, RD) officiating, of Miss Varena Phyllis Butler, younger daughter of Mr & Mrs E A Butler of White House, Aldington, and Mr Clifford Spring, elder son of Mr & Mrs W Spring of Hollywood, Sherrards Green, Malvern.  The bride, who was given away by her father, was tastefully attired in a dress of floral ninon with white hat trimmed with flowers to tone, and white shoes.  She wore a necklace of carved ivory, a family heirloom, and she carried a bouquet of white lilies.  She was attended by Miss Mary Spring, a sister of the groom, who was dressed in floral georgette with beige hat and shoes and carried a shower bouquet of pink sweet peas.  The duties of best man were carried out by Mr Stuart Spring, brother of the groom.  The bride’s mother wore a dress of crepe suede in floral design and carried a sheaf of sweet peas.  The mother of the groom wore a dress of grey marocain with black hat and shoes and carried pink carnations.

A reception, attended by over 30 friends of the bride and groom, was afterwards held at Aldington.  Four generations were represented at the wedding, the oldest guest being the grandmother of the bride, Mrs A H Butler of Aldington Manor, who is in her 84th year, and the youngest being the three-year-old son of Mr & Mrs C Cullen of Redditch.  The happy couple afterwards left for a motoring tour in Devonshire, after which they will make their home at West Malvern where the groom is in business as a butcher.
