The Methodist Church, Redruth, Burra, was the scene of a wedding on Wednesday. Miss Ida Cox was married to Mr. Samuel John Sampson, second son of John Lawn Sampson, of Broken Hill. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. T. Metherill. The church had been tastefully, decorated by friends of the bride. A wedding bell, with the initials of the bride and bridegroom worked on it, was suspended from an archway of greenery under which the bridal couple stood. The bride; who was given away by her brother, Mr. H. Cox, of Burra, was daintily gowned in white silk, with applique trimmings. The bride was attended by two sisters and one train bearer, who were all tastefully dressed. Mr. F. W. H. Howie acted as best man. After the ceremony the guests drove to the residence of the bride’s parents, where a wedding breakfast wass partaken of, and a pleasant afternoon was spent by friends and relatives. On the same night the happy couple left for Broken Hill, where they will reside. The bride’s travelling dress was a grey costume, with grey silk velvet hat to match, with grey plumes and pink silk bows. A number of useful and hand-some presents were received, also many telegrams of congratulation.
