‘. . . A large and fashionable congregation assembled to witness the ceremony. . . . The bride arrived shortly after eleven o’clock, and was led to the altar by her father, who gave her away. She wore a magnificent costume, composed of a petticoat of white bengoline, arranged in simple long folds; cosaque bodice of silver brocade over a jabot of bengoline, and a long train of silver brocade, which was carried by one of her little brothers, dressed as a page in white Gainsborough costume. The bride wore no jewellery, and carried a bridal bouquet of white azaleas. There were ten bridesmaids. . . . attired in white satin skirts with soft silk overskirts and large white caps, and shoes and stockings of yellow silk. . . . The whole of the costumes were after the style of Sir Joshua Reynolds. Sir William Eden acted as best man. At the conclusion of the ceremony the bridal party returned to Edenthorpe, the seat of Lord Auckland, where the wedding breakfast was served. . . .’ (The Globe and Traveller, Thursday Evening, London, 1 January 1885, p. 4e)
