The wedding took place on Tuesday at the Parish Church, the Vicar (Canon Allsebrook) officiating, of Miss Ethel Elizabeth Moisey, fifth daughter of Mr & Mrs G Moisey of Bredon View, and Mr Harold Walter Goodall, only son of Mr & Mrs F Goodall, of Albert Road, Evesham. 

The bride, who was given away by her father, looked charming in a robe of shell pink suede crepe, with shoes and hat to match.  She carried a spray of pink and cream roses with maidenhair fern.  She wore a gold pendant, the gift of the bridegroom.  She also carried an ivory Prayer Book, the gift of the local branch of the GFS.  The bridesmaid was Miss Margaret Goodall, sister of the groom, who was attired in a dress of blue satin beauté and carried a bouquet of pink chrysanthemums with maidenhair fern.  She also wore a gold pendant, the gift of the groom.  Mr J Sherwood of Salford Priors was the best man.  At the church door the bride was met by her nephews, Robert and George Grinnell, and her niece Hazel Perkins, who presented her with horseshoes.

A reception was held at the home of the bride’s parents where about 30 were entertained.  Among the presents were gifts from Messrs Abell & Smith of Evesham, with whom the bridegroom has been employed for many years.  The honeymoon is being spent at Warwick.  The bride’s travelling dress was a two-piece costume of lemon colour with hat to match.

Their future home will be at 24 Avon Street, Evesham, where the good wishes of many will follow them.  In the evening the bells of the Parish Church rang a merry peal in honour of the event, the bride’s father having been a ringer for many years and also Sexton.
