On the 5th inst. a wedding which caused more than usual interest, owing, in a great measure, to the very high esteem in which the parents and family of the bride was held in this district, took place in the Union Church, Barfold. The church was most beautifully decorated by a few of the lady friends of the bride - Misses Bell, Fleming, Metcalf, Dalliston, Perry, and Dickens - the Wedding March being played by Mrs Bishop. The ceremony was performed by the Rev Canon Bishop R. D., of St. Paul’s, Kyneton. The contracting parties were Mr. J. T. Anselmi, of Mooroopna, eldest son of the late Mr. J. B. Anselmi, late of Daylesford, to Nellie, youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. E. Gamble, of Riverbend, Barfold. The bride, who was given away by her father, looked charming in a dress of ivory silk bodice, shirred transparent yoke, finished with handerkerchief, bertha of insertion tucks of lace, caught with a chou chiffon, long flowing shirred sleeves and a deep belt trained skirt with a circular graduated frill of alternate tucks and insertion, finished with lace. The bridesmaids were Miss Nora Gamble (sister of the bride) and Miss Anselmi (sister of the bridegroom), who were costumed in cream cashmere, trimmed with satin and chiffon, white hats trimmed with chiffon and pink roses. They also wore opal brooches, the gift of the bridegroom. The gift of the bridegroom to the bride was a gold watch and chain, and the bride gave the bridegroom a pair of gold sleeve-links. Messrs A Chapple and E Gamble were groomsmen. A large number of guests sat down to a most sumptuous wedding breakfast, served at the residence of the bride’s parents. The Rev Canon Bishop presided and proposed the toast of “The Bride and Bridegroom” in a splendid speech, to which the bridegroom made a very happy reply.......... The happy couple departed by the 9 o’clock train for Melbourne, where the honeymoon is to be spent.
