    FRAMLINGHAM WEEKLY NEWS: FASHONABLE WEDDING AT EARL SOHAM. The quiet and pretty little village of Earl Soham was quite a scene of festivity on Thursday afternoon, when a large and fashionable assembly gathered at the parish church of St Mary's to witness the prettiest wedding that has taken place here for many years, between Mr Harold Henry Sinclair Scott, eldest son of Robert Sinclair Scott, Esq., of Burnside, Largs, Ayrshire, and Miss Frances Dorothy Kirsopp, younger daughter of the late William Scurfield Kirsopp, Esq., of Hexham, Northumberland, and Mrs Kirsopp, of the Rookery, Earl Soham. The church was beautifully decorated with palms, ferns, lillies, and other choice plants, lent by Sir Auckland Colvin, KCSI, of the Lodge, Earl Soham. Special interest was taken by the villagers in the wedding, inasmuch as that Mrs Kirsopp and her two daughters have resided in the parish only comparatively a short time, yet by their pleasant manners, and the help they have rendered to anything that has taken place during their residence, have won for them golden opinions among all classes, and on the account the greatest interest was manifested in the joyous event on the part of the residents of the village and neighbourhood, and many willing hands were at work during the earlier part of the day in decorating the village, and before the time of the wedding the village presented quite a gay appearance.

    The bride was conducted to the altar her uncle, Colonel Stokoe, and the bridegroom was attended by Mr. Snowden, who acted as best naan. The nuptial ceremony was performed by the rector, the Rev. R. Abbay. The bride entered the church precisely at the time fixed, 2 o'clock, attired in exquisite dress of crepe de chine over white silk, draped over deep flounce of accordian pleated chiffon, tucked bodice trimmed with chiffon, and silk embroidery. The ornaments worn were a diamond brooch, gift of the bridegroom, and a pearl and diamond necklace, a gift of the bridegroom's parents, and carried a bouquet of white roses and white heather, the gift of the bridegroom. The bride was attended by six bridesmaids, vis.- Miss Kirsopp, sister of the bride; Miss Frances Scott, sister of the bridegroom; Miss Maud Stokoe, Miss Edith Du Pre, Miss Winifred Head, cousins of the bride, and Miss May Bowman; who were dressed lovely frocks of white oriental satin, trimmed with cream lace opening over petticoats of tucked chiffon, and wore picture hats, and carried bouquets of pink carnations and lace fans, gifts of the bridegroom. The bride was given away her mother, who wore a dress of pale grey satin, trimmed with cream lace chiffon bonnet to match, with feather boa, and carried a beautiful bouquet of crimson roses, gift of the bridegroom. Mr. T. W. Wright presided the organ, and at the conclusion played the wedding march. On leaving the church the happy couple were met with a storm of confetti, and the bells rang out a merry peal. A reception was held at the Rookery, nearly 100 being present in a marquee erected on the lawn, the arrangements being under Mr. C. F. Bradford, of Ipswich. The cake, standing nearly 5ft. high, was supplied the renowned Buzzard, Oxford St., London. Later in the day the wedded couple left for London en route to Wales, where the honey-moon is to be spent. The carriages used on the occasion were from the Rosslyn Stables, Ipswich. Appended is a list of the presents.
