Buckborough of Waterloo. Arthur Fellman, brother of the bride, played the organ and Percy Morley was usher. Percy appears to be a first cousin of the bride by way of her aunt Pamelia.

A child, one of the flower girls, is referred to as Miss Delight Hobbs, and will be a daughter of Delight's to Richard Hobbs.
