 Miss Doris Auty, sister of the bride, and Miss Margaret Smith were bridesmaids. Their frocks, of pink floral marocain, were worn with hats to tone, and sweet peas were arranged in the bouquets.
 Little Betty Timlin was flower girl. She wore a frock of pink satin and a tiny cap to match, and carried a Victorian posy.
 Mr Cecil B Gatchell was best man and Mr Robert Auty, brother of the bride, was groomsman.
 Mrs Auty received the guests wearing a frock of brown floral celanese and a hat to match.
 When Mr and Mrs Allan left for the north the bride was wearing an ensemble of silk crepe and a fawn hat.
