There was a very pretty wedding in Wesley Church, Perth, when Arthur Hicks, J.P., one of our prominent Nor'West settlers, was united in the bonds of matrimony with Miss Rose Cooper, the youngest daughter of Mrs. Cooper, of Russell-square. The ceremony was performed by the Rev.W.A. Potts, who, with some of the guests, had taken his position in the chancel previous to my arrival. Mr. Arthur Taylor, the talented organist of the Wesley choir, was entertaining the large group of visitors with some interesting airs from Mendelssohn's Wedding March preparatory to the arrival of the bride, who was announced punctually at a quarter past three o'clock. Miss Cooper was accompanied by her brother-in-law, Mr. R. D. O'Grady, J.P., another prominent Nor'West squatter, with a retinue of four bridesmaids - Miss May Waldeck, Miss Nena Waldeck (cousins of the bride), Miss Linda Hicks (sister of thye bridegroom) and Miss Randell, the quartette being very handsomely attired - the Misses Waldeck in Russian blouses of white corded silk with hats to match, trimmed with white feathers, the dresses of Miss Hicks and Miss Randell being of white cashmere with zouave bodices and white hats. The bride, who looked exquisitely charming, was attired in a dress of grey crépon, profusely trimmed with white ribbon, her hat being a light grey trimmed with white feathers en suite this appropriate display of colour being suitably added to by a beautiful bouquet of maidenhair ferns and white roses. The rendering of the Wedding March by the organist, having proclaimed the conclusion of the ceremony, those in attendance at the Church comprising a party of about 20 guests, drove off to the residence of the bride's mother, where a sumptuous spread was provided and the usual toast list for such pleasurable occasions disposed of.

Among the guests I noticed: Mr. and Mrs. R. N. Waldeck, the Rev. W. A. and Mrs. Potts, Mr. and Mrs. Fuchs, Mr. and Mrs. H. Stirling, Mrs. Leach, Mr. J. Mackenzie, Mr. T. H. Cooper, Mr. Gawler and Mr. Harry King, who filled the position of best man, and responded in felicitous terms, to the toast of "The Bridesmaids."

Shortly after four o'clock, followed by quite aq cavalcade of carriages, Mr. and Mrs. Hicks left for Guildford, for their honeymoon, which it is hoped may be of everlasting duration. The presents that were forwarded to the happy pair were of a unique and valuable character, and go to show how highly both bride and bridegroom are appreciated by their large circle of friends.
