    BIGGLESWADE CHRONICLE: WEDDING
    A pretty wedding took place on the 23rd instant, at Southill Parish Church, between Mr Leslie F Wisson, son of Mr and Mrs F Wisson, of Potton, and Miss Betty Elena Jordan, eldest daughter of Mr and Mrs E Jordan, of Broom, the ceremony being performed by Canon Baker. The bride, who was given away by her father, wore a dress of fawn celanese crepe-de-chene, with hat, etc. to match, and carried a bouquet of cream roses and gypsophila, the gift of the bridegroom. She was attended by two bridesmaids, Miss Irene Jordan, sister of the bridge, and Miss Clara Wisson, sister of the bridegroom, both wearing dainty frocks of pale green crepe-de-chene, and carrying bouquets of pink roses and gypsophila, the bridegroom's gift. The duties of best man were undertaken by Mr F Chester. At the conclusion of the ceremony, a reception was held at the home of the bride's parents. The happy couple had a hearty send off when they left for London, the bride going away in a voile dress, over which was worn a fawn coat, with hat to match. The wedding presents, numbering upwards of fifty, included a silver mounted cake stand, marmalade jar and sugar castor from the Potton Wesleyan Choir, and the wedding cake was the gift of the bridegroom's mother.
