The Brisbane Courier - Wednesday 30 March 1932
Seldom has St. John's Cathedral been graced by a more beautiful bride than at the marriage of Mr. John Francis Paget and Miss Ann Millicent Blundell, which was solemnised there yesterday afternoon. It is also some considerable time since a wedding has created so much interest, and long before the appointed hour the Cathedral was filled, and the grounds were thronged with spectators anxious to catch a glimpse of the bride, who, as the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. P. A. Blundell, Ridgelands, Coorparoo, is well known not only in society circles, but as a gifted musician and artist. The bridegroom, who has also made many friends in Brisbane and Sydney, where he has been residing for some time, is the only son of Mr. and Mrs. Mark J. Paget, Crosslee, Woking, Surrey, England. Bishop Dixon officiated. Mr. George Sampson presided at the organ, and the service was fully choral. Easter daisies were used as decorations on the chancel steps, and similar flowers, with lilies, were placed on the altar. The bride, who was given away by her father, made a lovely picture in her gown of magnolia satin, which was moulded to her slim figure, and cut with long tight-fitting sleeves and a rounded, neckline, showing a tiny vestee of very old hand-made lace. The skirt, which fell in soft flares, was arranged with a double train. She wore a veil of cut tulle, caught to the head with a coronet of orange blossoms, and a short veil was worn over the face as she entered the Cathedral. The bride carried a sheaf of Eucharis lilies, and she wore a turquoise and diamond brooch, which had been given to an ancestor of the bridegroom by the late Queen Victoria. Miss Neaera Sampson, who was. the only bridesmaid, wore a frock of delphinium blue chiffon, fashioned with long tight-fitting sleeves, and a swathed corsage. The skirt was cut with flared godets, and at the back fell a frill in bustle effect. In her hair she wore a coronet of frangipanni, and she carried a sheaf of the same fragrant blossoms. Mr. M. E. Allen was best man and Messrs. Stephen King and F. Noyes were ushers. At the conclusion of the ceremony a cocktail party was held at bride's home. A marquee erected on the lawn was decked with dahlias and palms, and the reception rooms in the house were massed with dahlias, roses, and gerberas. Mrs. P. A. Blundell received the guests wearing a gown of dove grey ninon, with the corsage showing a fichu of cream mariette and Paris lace, and the skirt was given fullness by triple flounced godets. She wore a black straw hat, finished with black and grey ospreys, and carried a posy of pink roses. The bouquets were the work of Tress, Ltd. Among the guests were Dr. Sharp (Archbishop of Brisbane), the Premier (Mr. A. E. Moore), and Colonel L. E. C. Worthington Wilmer. On leaving the reception the bride wore a tailored frock of Persian red Marocain, arranged with a stock collar of black astrakhan, and a black patent leather belt. Her Glengarry hat was of fur felt in the same shade, showing a plaited fold. Mr. and Mrs. J. F. Paget will leave by the Strathaird for England, where they will reside.
