The Wedding of Trevor Owen Cale and Gertrude Elizabeth Jenkins

Llansoy

Military Wedding - A pretty wedding was solemnised at the parish church on Thursday between Trevor Owen, fourth son of Mr. and the late Mrs. Cale of New House, and Gertrude Elizabeth, fourth daughter of the late Mr. James T.S. Jenkins and Mrs. Jenkins, The Cross.

The wedding was a military one, the bridegroom being attached to a Canadian signalling corps in France, the best man being the bridegroom's brother, Sergt. Cale, and the bride was given away by her brother, Pte. Arthur Jenkins. By a happy coincidence, Pte. Arthur Cale, another brother of the bridegroom, was also present, being on leave from France.

The bridesmaids were the Misses Lily and Doris Jenkins, sisters of the bride. The bride looked charming in a saxe blue costume with black fur collar and velvet hat trimmed with old gold.

The service was choral, Miss Alice Watkins acting as organist. the hymns sung were "The Voice that breathed o'er Eden", "How welcome was the call". The "Wedding March" was played as the bridal party left the church. The reception was held at the bride's home, and later the happy couple left for a short honeymoon. Numerous presents showed the esteem in which the bride and bridegroom are held.
