On Wednesday, April 16th, a very pretty and interesting wedding took place at the Parish Church. The ceremony was performed by the rector (Rev. J. A. Whitaker.) The contracting parties were Mr. Robert Knifton, of the Moor Farm, Chaddesden, youngest son of Mr. E. Knifton, of The Grange, Horsley, and Miss Sarah Bailey, second daughter of Mr. T. Bailey, of the Glebe Farm, Breadsall. The bride, who was given away by her father, looked charming in a dress of pale grey crepoline, tastefully trimmed with white silk, embroidered chiffon, and insertion, with toque to match; she also carried a lovely shower bouquet of cream roses. The bridesmaids were Miss Annie Bailey, sister of the bride, and Miss Maggie Bailey, cousin. They wore pretty blue crepoline dresses, trimmed with white silk and insertion, white chiffon hats with ostrich feathers. They also wore gold bangles and brooches, the gift of the bridegroom, and carried bouquets of daffodils. Mr. J. Richardson, of Horsley, was best man. Selections on the organ and Mendelssohn’s Wedding March were played by the organist (Mr. Mumby.). The bride and bridegroom were the recipients of more than a hundred valuable and useful presents.
