  • 30 May 1912: Marriarge. ROBINSON—WILLIAMS.
    The first wedding to be held in the Craigieburn new hall took place on Wednesday, April 10th, at 7.15 p.m., when Margery, third daughter of Mr and Mr Richard Williams (formerly of "Kilmure," Derrinal), now of "Hill view," Craigieburn, was married to Arthur, youngest son of Mr and Mrs G. W. Robinson, "Hillsley, Narre Warren. The bride, who was given away by her father, looked sweetly pretty in her bridal robe of cream, with the wreath embroidered veil her mother wore. The bridesmaids were Miss Ella Williams, sister of the bride, and her cousin, Miss Lilian Williams (from Tasmania). The former wore pale blue and the latter cream. The bride and bridesmaids carried exquisite bouquets made by the bridegroom's mother. The bridegroom's gift to the bride was a handsome gold bracelet, set with emeralds and pearls, the bridesmaids receiving beautiful opal rings. The bridegroom was supported by Mr Percy Williams and Mr T. James, brother and cousin of the bride. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. F. J. Jennings, of Melbourne. The hall was beautifully decorated for the occasion by friends and relatives, the bridal party standing under an arch from which was suspended a large wedding bell. Mrs T. J. Williams, of South Anstralia, presided at the piano, playing appropriate music. Relatives and friends from New South Wales, Tasmania, South Australia and Penang, were present, as well as numerous local visitors. Wedding tea was served to between 70 and 80 guests, the usual toasts being proposed, after which the happy pair left by the evening train for Melbourne, en route to Sorrento, the bride travelling in navy blue braided costume and saxe blue felt hat, and a handsome black fox fur, the gift of the father.
