  • 18 Oct 1918: WILLIAMS-THEWLIS.
    A pretty wedding was celebrated at the Pakenham Methodist Church on Saturday afternoon last, when Miss Minnie Jane Thewlis, a daughter of Mr and Mrs Thewlis, of "Sunnyside," Pakenham, was united in marriage to Mr Osmond Carter Williams. The church was decorated for the occasion. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. H. S. Heath, of Dandenong, in the presence of a number of friends of the bride and bridegroom. The bride, who was daintily attired in white crepe de chine, and wore the customary wreath and veil, looked very pretty. Her sister (Miss Grace Thewlis), who acted as bridesmaid, was dressed in pale pink crepe de chine. Mr F. Auhl was best man. The singing of "The Voice that Breath'd o'er Eden," preceded the marriage ceremony, and at the close the Wedding March was played by Miss O. Renfrey. As the happy couple left the church and proceded to a motor car, they were bountifully showered with confetti and received the hearty congratulations and good wishes of many friends. The wedding breakfast was partaken of at "Sunnyside," a number of guests being present. The happy couple left by the afternoon train for Melbourne, carrying with them the best wishes of many friends for their future happiness and prosperity. Minnie Jane Thewlis7
