Cutting from Society Paper.
At St. George's Church, Hanover-square, Mr. Alexander-Rowland Alston, eldest son of Sir Francis Beilby Alston, was married to Muriel, eldest daughter of Canon and Mrs. Blundell, on Tuesday last week. The bride wore a gown of white mousseline-de-soie, the skirt draped with an old Brussels lace shawl, the transparent chemisette and sleeves being embroidered with chiffon in a cloud design. The Court train, festooned from the centre of the back over ivory satin, was entirely of Brussels lace, her mother's gift. She wore a crescent-shape wreath of orange blossom and a Brussels lace veil, and, instead of a bouquet, carried an ivory-bound Prayer-book.
The eight bridesmaids were attired in white gossamer, inserted all over with narrow ribbons.
The skirts were made in the new shape and frilled to the waist at the back.
The fichus, chemisettes and sashes were in white chiffon, and they wore Tuscan hats with ivory plumes and miroir velvet, and bronze shoes. The bride's travelling gown was of pale grey Irish hengaline with cream insertions, a Charles I. cape to match lined with quillings of white chiffon, and a grey Victorian hat with shaded grey feathers and tulle.
