MARRIAGE FESTIVITIES.- On Wednesday Miss Charlotte Dowell, daughter of the vicar of the parish, was married to Mr. A. B. Pinckney, architect, of Cheltenham. The day was beautifully fine, and a very large number of clergy and others from the surrounding villages were present. The pretty church had been beautifully decorated throughout (especially the chancel) with magnificent roses and other cut flowers, the lecturn and font being adorned with considerable artistic skill. The church was packed with a fashionable party. The bridegroom was attended by his best man, Mr. Wood. The bride was attended by her father and her nine bridesmaids, viz., Miss Mary and Miss Edith Dowell (sisters of the bride), Miss T. Frere and Miss Dowell (cousins of the bride), Miss Colvin, Miss Waterfield, Miss Hooper, and Miss Amy and Miss Marian Colvin. The bride was dressed in brocaded white satin, trimmed with Brussels lace, and wore a spray of white Scotch roses and long tulle veil, and carried a superb bridal bouquet. The bridesmaids' dresses were of sprayed cream muslin, trimmed with lace to match, and each carried a choice bouquet. As the bridal party entered the church the hymn, "The voice that breathed o'er Eden," was nicely sung by the choir. The service was choral, and was conducted by the late rector of Great Ryburgh, the Rev. George Tatham of St. Paul's Vicarage, East Moulsey, Hampton Court, assisted by the Rev. W. Pinckney, brother of the bridegroom. The service being concluded, Mendelssohn's "Wedding March" was played by Mr. C. Hewitt of Norwich, who presided at the harmonium. As the happy pair left the church the school children bestrewed their path with flowers. The wedding breakfast subsequently took place on the vicarage grounds, at the entrance of which was placed a banner wishing "Health and happiness to the bride and bridegroom." About seventy guests were present at the breakfast, which was of a most recherche description, and served in a spacious booth, which had been erected for the purpose. The bride received 150 presents, which were both costly and useful. The happy pair left Dunton amid showers of rice, &c., to catch the 3:40 train en route for the Channel Islands. After the bride had departed the school children and the women of the parishes of Dunton and Doughton were liberally entertained to a first-class tea, which was thoroughly enjoyed.A string band was in attendance during the day, which will long be remembered as a red-letter day in the village.

The inhabitants of Dunton and Doughton wish to return their sincere thanks for the liberality of the Rev. E.W.Dowell, and Mrs. Dowell, on the occasion of Miss Charlotte's wedding. First, for the dresses, hats, and gloves given to the children; secondly, for the beautiful tea provided at the vicarage for both women and children.2
