At St James’ Church on Saturday, the wedding was solemnised by the Vicar (Rev W C Allsebrook, RD) of Miss Maggie Adeline, the only daughter of Mrs and the late Mr Charles March of The Neuk, Brewers Lane, and Mr Maurice George, only son of Mrs and Mr G T Savory of Sidi Bishr, Bretforton Road, Badsey.

The bride, who was given away by her brother, Mr Charles March, was tastefully attired in a gown of blue silk marocain, with cream silk stockings and cream shoes, with cream felt hat to match, and wore a spray of orange blossom and violets.  The bridesmaid, Miss Kathleen Savory, sister of the bridegroom, wore a dress of amethyst and white crepe-de-chine with hat to match.  The best man’s duties were carried by Mr Douglas Alcock of Evesham, a friend of the bridegroom.

Following a reception at the bride’s home, the happy couple left for their honeymoon tour by car.

A large number of beautiful and useful presents were received.  The bride’s present from the Badsey branch of the GFS took the form of an ivory-covered Prayer Book, the bride having been a member of the branch.  She is also a member of the Church Parochial Council.

The future home of the happy pair will be at The Neuk, Brewers Lane.

The bride’s mother left the district for the home of her brother at Warren, Ohio, USA by the SS Mauretania on Wednesday for an indefinite stay, her present plans being to make her future home there.  She will be missed in many of the affairs which go to make up the life of a village, having been keenly interested in church matters for a considerable number of years, especially the Sunday School of which she was a teacher.  She also presented the prizes at the annual prize-giving held recently.
