At Andrew's Church was the scene of a very pretty wedding on Thursday afternoon when Miss Elizabeth Bernice Junor, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C.G. Junor, Rosemarkie, was married to Mr. John Smith, son of Mr. and Mrs. W. Smith, Carron, Moray-shire.  The bride, who was given away by her father, wore a most becoming gown of oyster satin, with cowl neckline caught by a posy of orange-blossom and wide Bishop Sleeves, held at the wrist, her tulle veil was held in place by a halo head-dress of orange-blossom.  She wore gold shoes and her bouquet was of gold and white chrysanthemums.  Miss Isabel Moir was bridesaid and she chose a pretty frock of lavender taffeta with frills at the hem and wide puff sleeves.  She wore a juliet cap and black mittens and her bouquet was of lavender coloured chrysanthemums. The bride-groom was attended by Mr. William Mitchell, Malten, Banffshire and the marriage ceremony was performed by Rev. A.K. Campbell.  The floral decorations in the church were of chrysanthemums.  Mrs. A.K. Campbell presided at the organ and the hymns were "Love Divine" and "O, Worship the King".  The ushers were Messrs. F. Fraser and H. Mackenzie, Rosemarkie.  The reception was held at the Royal Station Hotel, Fortrose, where the bride's mother received the guests attired in a smart navy blue ensemble.  After cake and wine the company, numbering over 50 were entertained to a sumptuous repast excellently purveyed by Mr. and Mrs. Mackay and staff.  A number of congratulatory telegrams were read and the usual toasts were cordially pledged.  The young couple received a rousing send-off when they left on their honeymoon, the bride travelling in a smart nigger-brown three-quarter coat and skirt on princess lines, with hat to match and carried a nigger-brown handbag, the gift of the bridegroom.  Mr. and Mrs. Smith have been the recipients of a large number of gifts and the best wishes of their many friends go with them for their future happiness and prosperity.
