    HUNTS COUNTY NEWS: INTERESTING WEDDING AT ST. IVES. FREEMAN-CULPIN. A wedding attracting a good deal of interest was solemnised at the St Ives Free Church on Tuesday last, the contracting parties being Miss Blanche Culpin, third daughter of the late Mr M C Culpin and Mrs Culpin, Cromwell-place, St Ives, and Mr Albert James Edward Freeman, only child of Mr & Mrs J E Freeman, of Woolpack Farm, Hemingford Grey. The bride's dress was of ivory silk warp, trimmed with ivory merve silk and lace, and she wore a wreath of orange blossom and veil. The Misses Maggie and May Culpin, sisters of the bride, were the bridesmaids, and they were attired in Wedgewood blue cloth, trimmed with silk to match, and biscuit colour hats, trimmed with hydrangeas and fancy silk ribbon. The bride's bouquet was of exquisite exotic flowers, and the bridesmaids' bouquets were composed of Marshal Neil roses, all being the gifts of the bridegroom, and supplied by Madame Bouchier, London. Mr Arthur Culpin, the brother of the bride, gave her away, and Mr W J Crawley, manager of Borough branch of the firm of RB Webster, London, was the best man. The service was conducted by the Rev. J Hutchison, assisted by the Rev. S Huckle, of Hemingford Grey, and Mr Archie Naish presided at the organ, the opening voluntary being the Bridal March from "The Ten Virgins," and at the end of the service Mendelssohn's "Wedding March".

    The happy pair left by the four o'clock train for St Leonard's, the bride's dress being of brown cloth, with cream satin and lace vest. She wore a picture hat to match the costume. The guests at the reception held at the Woolpack Farm numbered about fifty, nearly all being relatives of the bride and bridegroom.

    The bride's present to the bridegroom was a set of gold studs and links, the bridegroom's present to the bride being a gold bracelet. The presents received, numbering over 100, included many very useful and valuable articles, most conspicuously placed amongst them being a massive marble clock, from the employees of RB Webster (London); from the employees of the Holwood's Farm, Somersham, a pair of gilt and glass fruit baskets and jam dish; from the employees of Woolpack and Grove Farm a silver-plated egg stand and spoons; from the employees of Conington Rectory Farm a hand painted China biscuit barrel; from the schoolchildren and inhabitants of Hemingford Grey a splendid silver-plated tea service and pictures from local artists; from the maids at Woolpack Farm, a pair of ruby glass water jugs and silver-plated and glass jam dish; and from old servants many useful articles, including inkstand and stationery cabinet in oak, glass cake stand and pillow lace, hot water jug and glass cake stand, and many individual presents from inhabitants of the village and employees of Mr M C Culpin, including cheese dish, rugs, mats, and other fancy articles.

    Among the other presents were a most miscellaneous collection, no two articles being exactly alike. They comprised: copper kettles, brass candlesticks, brass iron stands, coal box, oak trays, silver spoons, forks, ladles, toast racks, entrée dish, serviette rings, jam spoons, pickle forks, butter knife, bread fork, crumb scoop, sugar sifters, nut crackers, knife rests, salts and spoons, pair flower vases, breakfast and dinner cruets, butter dish, two pair sugar tongs, case of cutlery, case of carvers, oak and silver biscuit barrel, Wedgwood and silver biscuit barrel, also splendid pair equestrian Marlow bronze statues, dinner gong, flower stands and vases, rug, mats, needlework, consisting of house linen, table linen, fancy cushions, etc., to say nothing of brass fire irons, bread fork and knife, dinner and tea service, mangle and wringer, sets of jugs, pair bellows, and wooden spoon. The entire household furniture was presented by the parents of the bridegroom with the exception of an octagon occasional walnut table, given by a personal friend. The employees of the five farms were given a day's holiday, and sat down to a luxurious meal tea in honour of the event in a gaily decorated building at Woolpack Farm.
