A charming wedding was that of Corporal Aubrey Clyde Sinclair, only son of the late Mr. David and Mrs. Agnes Sinclair, of Bayswater, and Miss Mabel Louisa Gunner, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. E. Gunner, of Belmont. The ceremony took place in St. John's Church, Melbourne-road, on July 3, the Rev. C. H. D. Grimes officiating. The dainty bride was given away by her father and attended by Miss Ethel Hunter and by Master Sydney Bell and Miss Maggie Ross as train-bearers. Mr. H. Gunner acted as best man. The bride wore a lovely ' gown of crepe de chine, trimmed with Brussels lace. The usual wreath and veil were in evidence and the bridal bouquet of beautiful white flowers. Miss E. Hunter wore a lovely dress of silk muslin trimmed with shadow lace,, mob cap, and carried a bouquet of pink carnations. The little pages were very pretty in white silk, Miss Maggie Ross carrying a basket of pink roses and carnations. The wedding breakfast was partaken of at Mrs. Hunter's, Victoria Park, Mr. E. Dalziel making a capital speech. Mrs. Austin, of Springburn, Bayswater, the only sister of the bridegroom, was at church, but owing to sickness in the family left for home. The happy pair had numerous telegrams of congratulation, one in particular from the bridegroom's aunt, Mrs. Snooks, of Southern Cross. As they were leaving the church a number of soldiers from Blackboy Hill cheered them heartily and showered the corporal with rice. The bride's going-away dress was a dove-colored grey trimmed with cerise and latest military hat. The bride and bridegroom left per motor for their honeymoon at Cottesloe.

I think there was a typo error by the newspaper in this entry:
It says "Mabel Louisa Aguna"....but other references to surname is "Gunner"
? Maybe an error in telephone or other transcription. Phonetically, both surnames can
sound a little similar.
