Two well-known Badsey and Offenham families were united on Tuesday when the wedding took place of Miss Constance Lilian May Perkins, only daughter of Mr & Mrs T Perkins of 15 Synehurst, Badsey, and Mr Ronald Percy Rouse, eldest son of Mr & Mrs P Rouse of Blackminster.  The Vicar (Canon Allsebrook, RD) officiated.

The bride, who was given away by her father, looked charming in a dress of parchment chiffon velvet with veil and orange blossoms and shoes to tone.  She carried a bouquet of pink and white carnations.  On arrival at the church she was presented with a white horseshoe by Miss Vera Bickerstaff.  The bridesmaids were the Misses Vera Rouse (sister of groom), Gracie Jones (cousin of bride) and Doris Witts.  They wore frocks of old rose wind swept satin, a becoming contrast to the bride’s.  They also wore shoes to tone and carried bouquets of yellow chrysanthemums.  Silver chain necklets, gifts of the groom, were also worn.

At the reception at the bride’s parents’ home, the Vicar was present.  Mr & Mrs Rouse are making their future home at 15 Synehurst, Badsey.
