"Saturday Wedding Moll-Stockwell

"The marriage of Miss Jean Margaret Stockwell, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. G.V.R. Stockwell, of Rosebank, and Mr. Theodor Arthur Moll, youngest son of Mr. E. Moll, of Kentani, Transkei, and the late Mrs. Moll, took place at the Wale Street Baptist church on Saturday afternoon.

"The Rev. Andrew MacBeath officiated. The bride's borther, Mmr. Stanley Stockwell, played the organ for the service and there were solos by Miss M. Grove and Mr. H. Ind.

"The bride, who was given away by her father, wore a graceful gown of white moss crepe and an embroidered veil which was held in place by a chaplet of gardenias. Her bouquet was composed of white carnations and tuberoses.

"The Reception. The only bridesmaid, Miss Doris Durston, wore a marina green gown cut with a softly-gathered waistline. A spray of forget-me-nots formed her headdress and she carried a bouquet of pink roses and carnations.

"Mr. James Thackwray was the best man.

"The reception was held at Fletcher and Cartwright's Tearoom, which was decorated in a pink and green colour scheme.

"The toast was proposed by the Rev. A. MacBeath.

"The bride's mother received the guests wearing a smartly-cut petrol blue ensemble with brown hat and accessories and a shoulder spray of tea-shaded rosebuds.

"The bride travelled in a turquoise green two-piece costume with which she wore a white hat and accessories."

Note the touch of Dracula in Peter's eyes . This is because in the original he had his eyes closed since he adopted a tic for blinking in 1964. His own editing at the console in July 2000 has somewhat improved matters, but volunteer artists are sought.
