  • 20 Aug 1914, Mr. Arthur H. Anderson to Miss M. Fowler.
    Beaconsfield Upper was quite en fete on a recent Thursday, the occasion being, the marriage of Miss M. Fowler, fourth daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. J. Fowler, of Camberwell, and Mr. Arthur Harold Anderson, third son of the late T. F. Anderson and Mrs. Anderson, of "Caversham," Pakenham West.
    Great interest was taken in the event, as both the bride and the bridegroom are so well known and universally liked, and it was the first wedding ceremony to be performed in the local public hall, which was beautifully decorated by the numerous girl friends of the bride, who worked under the supervision, of Mrs. James Wilson. The officiating clergyman was the congregational minister, the Rev. James Wilson.
    The bride, who was given away by her brother, Mr. H. T. M. Fowler, looked charming in a dainty gown of ivory supple satin, with over dress of Limerick lace, the bodice and draped tunic being appliqued with silk flowers and small pearls. The tulle veil, simply bordered, was caught back with clusters of orange blossom and heather, and a shower bouquet of white flowers and asparagus fern was carried.
    The bride's sister, Miss N. Fowler, was bridesmaid, and wore a very becoming gown of pale blue crepe de chine, relieved by a slight trimming of black velvet. The bridegroom's brother, Mr. B. Anderson, was best man. As the wedding party were leaving the hall the organist, Miss Dora Stenhouse, played Mendelssohn's Wedding March.
    After the ceremony Mrs. and Miss Fowler held a reception at "Salisbury House," when Mr. and Mrs. Anderson received the congratulations of their many friends, after which wedding tea was partaken of.
    Mr. and Mrs. Anderson left by the afternoon train for Melbourne, en route to Mentone for the honeymoon.
    The bride's travelling dress was a smart grey tailor-made coat and skirt costume, the hat being black panne with a white mount. Two little girls, Bridie Stenhouse and Jean Martin, strewed rose-leaves in the path of the bride as she left the hall and again as she left on the honeymoon trip. An enjoyable dance was held in the evening.
    Mr. and Mrs. Anderson's future home will be at "Warrawee," Pakenham.18
