Picturesque Hull weddingDR A. M. SEGERDAL AND MISS VERA FORD

St. Jude’s Church, Spring-bank, was the scene of a pretty wedding this afternoon, when the marriage of Dr Alexander McMonagle Segerdal, of Leicester, son of Mr and Mrs Segerdal, of Belfast, and Miss Vera Ford, daughter of Captain and Mrs R. Ford, of Sunny Bank, Hull, was solemnised by the Rev. A. Lea, M.A., of Leicester, assisted by the Vicar, the Rev A. L. Leeper, M.A.

The bride, who was given away by her father, was charmingly dressed in white lace and net, with orange blossom and a train of Brussels lace lined with shell pink georgette, whilst on her veil was a coronet of Brussels lace. She carried a shower bouquet of shell pink roses.

The bridesmaids were the Misses Elma and Noreen Ford, sisters of the bride, whilst Miss Joan Dunkerley, of Bridlington, carried the bride’s train.

The bridesmaids’ gowns were of the daintiest, created in orchid georgette over jade, with deep border of silk net, while beautiful tinted flowers to harmonise were a prominent feature, and together with a large cluster of velvet ribbon at the low waist-line, formed the only trimming. They wore pink graduated pearls, the gift of the bridegroom, and carried bouquets of mauve sweet peas.

The gown worn by the bride’s mother was modelled in black silk georgette over satin beaute on most becoming lines, with ultra smart sleeves. The embroideries on bodice and panels were most unusual, and included many bright colours, giving a charming effect.

These gowns were designed and carried out by F. Costello, Saville-street, Hull.

The dress of the bridegroom’s mother was of biege marocain with wedgwood blue underdress and hat of black lace.

Miss Dunkerley, the train-bearer, was smartly attired in shell crepe-de-Chine, with side panels of fulled net, trimmed with small pink rose buds, and she wore a dainty net cap to match.

The ceremony was choral, Mr Bird presiding at the organ. The duties of best man were ably carried out by the brother of the bridegroom, Dr A. Segerdal, of London. Mr C. S. Beecroft acted as usher.

Following a reception at the York Rooms, in Anlaby-road, where many relatives and friends were present, the happy couple left by car for Devonshire, where the honeymoon will be spent. The travelling dress of the bride was a Princess Mary blue two-piece, with hat to match. The bride and bridegroom were the recipients of many beautiful and useful presents.
