On the 19th ult. a very pretty wedding took place at the North Melbourne Presbyterian Church, the contracting parties being Mr. William Craig, late of Ballarat and North Beaconsfield State School, and Miss Bina Sykee, eldest daughter of Mr. J.

The bride was tastefully attired in a beautiful costume of goblin blue with trimmings and wreath to match, and a natural orange blossom wreath, and handsome veil which was fastened with brooches prettily ornamented with handsome stones. Miss Craig, sister of the bridegroom, acted as bridesmaid, as did also the bride's two sisters Miss A. and E. Sykes. The Rev. J. T. Robertson, Pastor of the Union Memorial Church, officiated, and after the ceremony an excellent breakfast was partaken of at the residence of the bride's father, the room being nicely decorated with camelias and other flowers sent from Beaconsfield by Mrs. Brumfield and Mrs. Lennie and others. About 80 guests sat down, amongst whom were Mr. and Mrs. Sutton, Mr. and Mrs. Ballenger, Mr. Smith, Mrs. Porter, Mrs. Pearce, Mr. and Mrs. Sykes, Mr. J. Craig, and the Rev. J. T. Robertson. The toast of the bride and bridegroom was given by the last named gentleman, and was happily responded to by Mr. Craig. The "Brides maids" was proposed by Mr. W. Craig and responded to by Mr. Barclay, and after other toasts Mr. and Mrs. Craig left for their honeymoon at Warragul by the Gippsland evening express. The bride and bridegroom were accompanied to the station by their relations and friends and accorded a hearty " send off," many kind wishes being expressed for their future happiness.13
