Wedding Wednesday - Amelia Fleming

My parents were married on the 17th of May 1958 at Mooroopna, Victoria.

Mum and her parents Archie and Daisy Fleming.
Article in the Shepparton Newspaper:

White Lace and Tulle for Bride's Frock

St. Alban's Church of England at Mooroopna was chosen for the wedding of Miss Joan Fleming, second daughter of Mr.  and Mrs. A. Fleming of West Roadside, Tatura, and Mr Kerry James Forsyth, only son of Mr. and Mrs. J. Forsyth of Shepparton East.  Chrysanthemums and autumn foliage decorated the Church, with white bows adorning the ends of the pews.

The bride, given away by her father, wore a gown of white lace and tulle made over satin, and her fingertip veil was held in place by a diamente studded head dress.  She carried a bouquet of gardenias and rosebuds.

The bride's sister, Miss Margaret Fleming, was the bridesmaid, wearing a ballerina frock of pale blue nylon, and carrying a bouquet of pink carnations and rosebuds.

The bridegroom was attended by Mr. Robert Hall of Mooroopna.
At the wedding reception held at the Arcadia Cafe, guests were received by the parents of both bride and bridegroom.

Mrs Fleming wore a frock of pale mauve crepe, with matching hat and taupe accessories, finishing her toilette with an orchid spray, and Mrs. Forsyth chose a junior navy suit, hat and accessories, wearing an orchid spray on her lapel.

The young couple will make their home in Knight Street, Shepparton.

Jim and Brenda Forsyth, Kerry Forsyth, Amelia Joan Fleming, Daisy and Archie Fleming.

My parents separated in 1975.  
Their divorce was officially granted on my birthday the following year, 1976.
