The marriage took place at St James’ Church on Saturday of Miss Kathleen Geden, eldest daughter of Mr & Mrs A W Geden of 37 Synehurst and Mr Reginald Knight, second son of Mrs and the late Mr Edwin Knight of Antwerp, Middle Littleton.  The ceremony was solemnised by the Rev A H Lewis (Vicar of Bengeworth).

The bride, who was given away by her father, looked charming in an ankle-length dress of cream satin beauté trimmed with pearls and a veil and wreath of orange blossom.  She also wore white satin shoes to match and carried a bouquet of red roses and maidenhair fern.  The bridesmaids were Miss Elsie Geden (sister of the bride), Miss Mildred Knight (sister of the bridegroom) and Miss Doris Haines (the bride’s friend) who were daintily attired in ankle-length dresses of maroon red pelican cloth with gold buckles.  Their headdresses took the form of a wreath of gold leaves and they also wore gold-coloured shoes to tone.  Each carried a bouquet of bronze chrysanthemums with maidenhair fern.  The duties of best man were carried out by Mr Fred Knight, brother of the bridegroom.

Both the bride and bridegroom are well known in the district, the bride for some time being a member of the local branch of the Girls’ Friendly Society, while the bridegroom was at one time a regular playing member of the Littleton United Football Club.  Their popularity was shown by the large number of friends present, a large congregation attending the ceremony.

A reception was afterwards held at the home of the bride’s parents, where numerous guests were entertained.  Mr & Mrs Knight were the recipients of numerous useful and handsome presents. 

Later in the day the bride and bridegroom left for their honeymoon which is being spent at Dudley.  The bride travelled in a grey coat with hat to match and black shoes.  They will make their future home temporarily at 37 Synehurst, Badsey.
