Launceston Examiner Monday 8 May 1905


On Wednesday, at the Wesleyan Church, a quiet and pretty wedding was solemnised by the Rev. S. C. Flockart, the contracting parties being Mr. C. Riley, of Wynyard, and Miss Susan Ross Lucas, third daughter of Mr. Arthur Lucas, of Hadspen. As the bride entered the church, which was tastefully decorated by her girl friends, "The Voice that Breathed O'er Eden" was sung by the choir. The bride, who was given away by her father, wore a becoming gown of grey prettily trimmed with cream silk and lace, and wore the usual veil and orange blossom. She also carried a beautiful bouquet, composed of white chrysanthemums, cosmos, and maiden-hair fern, and long streamers of white ribbon, a gift from Entally.

She was attended by the Misses Winnie Lucas and Fay Young, sister and cousin of the bride respectively, who were prettily attired in cream frocks, and wore large picture hats. The bridegroom was supported by Mr. T. Lucas, brother of the bride. At the conclusion of the ceremony the Rev. S. Flockart presented the bride with a beautiful photograph of himself, and expressed his great pleasure at being present on such an occasion, it being his first visit to Hadspen. As the bride left the church amid showers of rice and confetti the Wedding March was played by Miss Hadfield.

The wedding breakfast was served at the residence of the bride's parents, only the immediate friends and relatives being present. The bride was the recipient of many handsome and useful presents. The bride's travelling dress was of dark cloth, hand some black hat, with large ostrich feathers. She also wore a handsome boa and marmot muff. The happy couple left for their future home at Wynyard amidst all good wishes for their future happiness
