A wedding of interest in pastoral and interstate circles was celebrated with Nuptial Mass in St. Agatha’s Church, Clayfield, on Thursday of last week when Miss Ursula Ahern, youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. Ahern, Thornton, Muttaburra, was married to Mr. George William Haseler, third son of Mrs. M. Haseler, Thagoona, Pittswater Road, Pymble, Sydney, and the late Mr. George Haseler. Monsignor J. Einglish officiated. Mrs. J. Barr presided at the organ and Mrs. A. Ellison was soloist.
The church had been decorated by the Presentation Sisters. White satin draped the tabernacle and roses and gerberas beautified the altar. Palms decorated the sanctuary and white satin bows marked the pews reserved for the guests.
The bride who was given away by her brother (Mr. W. H. Ahern) wore a frock of soft blue colourings fashioned of chiffon mounted on taffeta and featuring a draped bodice and sleeves. The swathed corsage was allied with a fully flared skirt and over it fell a finger tip veil of matching tulle caught to the head by blue delphiniums and pink Cecil Brunner roses.
Mrs. T. S. McKenzie (Roseharty, Longreach) sister of the bride, was Matron of Honour and her frock of frost rose seventh heaven featured braided shoulders and large braided pockets. The skirt was fully flared. A wide brimmed toning hat of summer felt was worn and pink carnations and cyclamen sweet peas composed her bouquet.
Mr. L. W. Haseler (Mareta, Augathella), brother of the bridegroom, was best man.
The reception was held at the National Hotel where the decorations consisted of bowls of poinsettia. Vases of red roses and sweet-peas were combined with swathes of Nile green tulle in adorning the table.
Mrs. Ahern (mother of the bride) chose a black ensemble of dinner date fabric soutached with jet beading and a hat to tone.
The bridegroom’s mother (Mrs. Haseler), added a small black hat to ebon wool romaine ensemble trimmed with opalescent beading. .Leaving to spend the honeymoon on a trip to North Queensland, the bride favoured a blue suit relieved with angora embroidery on the pockets with a felt hat to tone.
