"Mrs and Mrs Tom Howitt"
by Electric Studios, Jackson Street, Petone

The wedding was solemnised recently at St. Augustine's Church, Petone, of Pearl Charity Grace, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. G. Asplet, Petone, to Thomas Francis, second son of Mr. and Mrs. D. Howitt, of Wellington. The Rev. Mr. Ramson officiated. The bride, who was given away by her father, wore a gown fashioned in early Victorian style, and was of lace zoralee over georgette with full draped skirt, finished with a bouccilae ornament in front. The dainty veil was attached to the new-fashioned Juliet cap with eardrops of orange blossoms at the sides and formed a beautiful train. She carried a beautiful bouquet of tiger lilies, carnations, asters, and maidenhair fern.

Miss Gladys Asplet, chief bridesmaid and sister of the bride, wore salmon pink crepe satin with hat to match, and carried a bouquet of mauve pansies and asters. The two little flower girls, Edith Asplet and Evelyn Schofer, sister and cousin of the bride looked, very charming, the former in cyclamen crepe satin, and the latter in deep turquoise satin, both with hats to match and carrying posies.

Mr. N. Smith, of Wellington, was best man. A dainty, silk horseshoe was given the bride as she left the church, later a reception was held at St. Augustine's Hall, where Mrs. Asplet, mother of the bride, received the guests, wearing Pavlova crepe de chine and hat to match. Mrs. D. Howitt, mother of the bridegroom, wore black silk trimmed with old gold lace, with hat to match. Later Mr. and Mrs Howitt left for New Plymouth by car, the bride's travelling frock being of almond green reppe, and a hat to tone. They were the recipients of many useful presents.
