    She was attended by her sisters, Miss Genevieve Tydeman wore a sleeveless Early Victorian frock of rainbow taffeta, with yoke and hem of cyclamen georgette. Miss Ena Tydeman's bouffant frock of blush pink taffeta had a petalled hem, and a large taffeta water lily rested at one hip. They wore veils of floral bordered tulle and bandeaux of ribbon and foliage to tone, and carried posies of ageratum, pink carnations and sweet peas. Mr Barry Tydeman, the bride's brother, was best man, with Mr Coleman Davis as groomsman.
    The reception was held at Perring's Cafe. Mrs Tydeman wore a black georgette frock, with a petunia georgette vest, and a felt hat to match. The bridegroom's mother was in black satin, with touches of green and brown, and an osprey finished her black velvet hat. After the honeymoon in Melbourne and Gippsland, Mr and Mrs C.
