Full Text

St. George's Anglican Church, Islington, was the setting for the marriage of Jeannette Gwynneth, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. F.G. Lister, to Mr. Arthur Edward Arkell, son of Mr. and Mrs. A.W. Arkell of Grimsby. Rev. R.B. Dann officiated, and Mr. William Sara at the organ accompanied Mr. Harold Bourne, soloist.

Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore an original gown of white Chantilly lace over blush satin, with finger-tip veil held by a matching headdress of lace over satin, trimmed with seed pearls. Her flowers were camellias and white hyacinths.

Cocktail-length dresses of claret lace over ice-blue satin were worn by Mrs. William M. Bateman, sister of the bride, matron of honour; Miss Joan McGuire and Miss Sally Julian, bridesmaids. All had matching headdresses of claret net, and carried blue hyacinths and yellow Shasta chrysanthemums. Miss Jackie Constable caught the bridal bouquet.

Mr. Ronald Arkell was best man for his brother, and the ushers were Messrs. Robert Arkell, Clyde Lister and Albert Pickett.

After a reception at the Alexandra Palace, Mr. and Mrs. Arkell left for Washington and the Southern States, and will live in Grimsby.
