The wedding of Major T. Macleod, O.B.E., Croix de Guerre with palm, (Royal Flying Corps and Royal Air Force), barrister-at-law, Brisbane (youngest son of the late Mr. Thos. Macleod, of the Brisbane Boys' Grammar School), and Miss Ruby Margaret Shannon (youngest daughter of Mr. John Shannon, of Wyalla, Toowoomba, and of Saltbush
Park, Mackay) took place last evening at 6.30, at St. Luke's, Toowoomba.
The ceremony was performed by the Rev. Canon Oakeley (rector of St. Luke's).
The bride, who was given away by her father, wore a gown of white satin charmeuse, simply draped with a beautiful hand-worked veil of finest silk lawn, which also formed the train.
She carried a sheaf of lilies.
The bridesmaids were Misses Olive Dalzell (Sydney), Millicent Wharton (Sydney), and Margaret Richardson (niece of the bride).
Miss Dalzell wore a gown of champagne taffeta and a tulle sash, relieved with hand-made flowers, and a champagne silk net hat.
Miss Wharton's costume was of draped yellow satin and georgette, with a black tulle hat.
Miss Richardson's gown was of shell pink georgette, over pink satin, caught with silver sprays, and was finished with a black hat.
The bridesmaids all carried old Victorian posies of cream and pink roses.
Captain W. L. Hay, A.F.C., Royal Air Force, acted as best man, and Captain K. Capel, R.A.F. (of Bingera, N.S.W.), and Lieut. A. F. Hudson (Australian
Flying Corps) as groomsman, flying corps uniforms being worn.
Both Captain Hay and Captain Capel saw service with Major Macleod overseas.
After the ceremony about 70 guests were entertained by Mr. John Shannon and Miss Shannon at a wedding breakfast at the Cafe Alexandra, the decorative colour scheme being pink and white.
Over the bride's table were suspended two model aeroplanes, complete in every detail, which had been made as a wedding gift by Sergeant-Pilot H. G. Smith, D.C.M., who
was one of the volunteers taken to England by Major Macleod for service with the Royal Flying Corps.
The bridesmaids wore gold brooches representing the badge of the Royal Air Force, which were gifts from the bridegroom.
Amongst the guests were Mr. and Mrs. James Love, of Glen Kedron, Brisbane (brother-in-law and sister of the bridegroom), and Mrs. Richardson and Mrs. Norman M'Intyre (Barcaldine), sisters of the bride.
