Chinese Wedding.

The first Christian Chinese wedding in Wellington for some years was solemnised in tho Anglican Chinese Mission Church, in Frederick street yesterday, when Mr. Herbert Kwok, of Wellington, was married to Miss Ida Low, of Blenheim. The service was solemnised by the Rev. P. B. Redgrave, general secretary of the Board of Missions assisted by tho Anglican Chinese Missloner (Mr. Wong Tze). Tho service which was partly in Cantonese and partly in English, was Semi-choral, Miss Peterson presiding at tho organ. Thoebride, who was escorted by her brother, looked very pretty, being charmingly dressed in shell-pink satin, with veil to match, carrying a bouquet of roses, heather, and lily of tho valley. The bridesmaids were the Misses Mollie and Nettie Low, in mauvo crepe de chine, and Miss Ida Chong, dressed in pale blue eropo de chine. Mr. Dick Kwok was best man, with Mr. Chan Pang as groomsman. After the ceremony the guests were entertained to a breakfast in the Chinese Masonic Hall. Evening Post, Volume CVII, Issue 31, 7 February 1929, Page 15
