WEDDINGS STOGDALE--CUDMORE There was a large gathering at St. John's Church, Toorak, on Saturday after noon, when Miss Evelyn Pierpont Cud- more, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Cudmore, late of "Avoca," Wentworth, N.S.W., was married to Mr. Stanley Stogdale, son of Mr. Frank Stogdale. The church was at tractively decorated witth variegated bam boo, palms and white flowers. The bride was attended by three grown up and two litte bridesmaids, all gowned in the most picturesque fashion imaginable. The bridal gown was of ivory white satin draped ef- fectively above the knees and finished with a small train. Over this was worn a court train of quite unusual magnificence. It was of white ninon, heavily brocaded with velvet, the whole being lined with the palest pink ninon. Miss Adele In- gram, maid of honor, and the two other bridesmaids wore frocks of blue satin faced cashmere. The upper part of the gowns was entirely covered with tulle, and very wide belts of tulle were set off with narrow box pleated ruches, piped with the blue satin. A similar ruche divided the tulle from the frock above the knees, giving a tunic effect to the gowns. Wreathes of blue satin roses were worn under quaint caps of tulle, which ended with a closely pleated fan of tulle at the back of the neck. They carried old world bouquets of white flowers and blue forgetmenots. The little maids, daughters of Mrs. G. Brookes and Mrs. F. Stogdale, wore de lightful little frocks, very pretty skirts of tulle piped with biue satin, supplement ing little coatees of tulle. Blue baskets of flowers gave a charming finishing touch. Mr. Clifford Anderson officiated as best man, the groomsmen being Dr. E. White, Dr. Balcombe Quick and Mr. Harper. After the weddng a large reception was held at Mandeville Hall.. Both bride and bridegroom had been living there for some time, and their engagement is one of sev eral associated with this particular guest house. The decorations there were very well carried out with raspbherry pink cac cactus ? and Japanese maple foliage. The entrance hall was beautified with pen dant baskets of red cactus dahlias. Mr. and Mrs. Cudmore received the guests in the hall, tthe bride and bridegroom after wards receiving them in the drawing room. A handsome frock of black ninon and lace, slightly relieved witlh pink, was worn by Mrs. Cudmore, with a black hat trimmed with a pink plume. Miss Stogdale's gown was of blue cloth, effectively trimmed with fur. After the reception, wedding break fast was served in a marquee, where the talble decorations were cleverly carried out in pink and blue, the initials of the bride and bridegroom, done with Cecil Brunner, being set above each table.
