    Notes 
    • Surprise Pary - Mr and Mrs, R.C. Tiller's Silver Wedding

      "Life is full of surprises" was the comment uttered by Mr and Mrs R.C. Tiller of Rupara Balaklava when they were invited to be present at Wild Horse Plains Hall on April 5th, the occasion being the celebration of their silver wedding, which falls on Sunday April 3rd. The Party was arranged by Mrs Algy Baker and Mrs Ben McArdle (sisters of the bride) of Windsor and all the brothers and sisters of both the bride and bridegroom joined forces in helping to make it the success it proved to be. In the Hall (where the marriage ceremony was performed in 1907) a reception was held from 5 to 5:30 p.m. when the bridal party consisting of Mr and Mrs R.C. Tiller (bride and bridegroom), Miss Ada Tiller (bridesmaid), Mr Archie Tiller (best man), Mr and Mrs W. M. Tiller (bridegroom's parents) and Mr and Mrs George Clark (bride's aunt and uncle) received the guests. The bride was presented with a pretty sheaf of white roses and asters and pale pink dahlias (made by Miss Ivy Clark, bride's cousin) by her two little nieces Ruth and Nancy Baker. Silver horse shoes and swastikas adorned with orange blossom and silver ribbon were hung on the arm by another little niece. Barbara Wilson; and a button hole of orange blossom and a silver leaf was pinned in the lapel of the bridegroom's coat by another little niece Effie Tiller. The bridesmaid carried a posy of pink and white carnations. After the reception about 100 guest sat down to a sumptuous spread. The decorations of the bridal table were carried out in white and silver and each serviette was embossed with a silver horse shoe. Pride of place was given to the beautiful 2 tiered wedding cake, adorned with silver and white and bearing the top ornament of the original wedding cake of 1907. This very important work was executed by Mrs Lucy Clark (Bride's sister-in-law). The guests' table was carried out in pink and white paper and cosmos and the hall was festooned with silver, white and pink streamers. The usual toasts were Honoured, the Loyal Toast being proposed by Mr George Clark, Jr, and the 'Bride and Bridegroom by Mr Will Carter, Mr Tiller in a short but happy speech responded. After the singing of 'For they are jolly good fellows' and the bride had cut the cake the happy pair were just about to leave the table when much to their surprise and consternation they were showered with confetti. At the right moment the bridesmaid pulled a cunningly hidden string with the result described. Tables were quickly moved and the floor made ready for the evening's entertainment of dancing, games and competitions. Mrs Clarry Clark (Sister-in-law_ supplied the music and Mr Ben McArdle (brother-in-law) was M. C. during the evening, Miss Jean Evans of Hoyleton, delivered a recitation in good style and suffered an encore to which she graciously responded. Mr and Mrs R.C. Tiller received many congratulations and presents, a beautiful silver cake stand, being the gift of their children, and an autograph book with the guests' names inscribed, from Miss Ada Tiller. A silver sugar bowl was received from Mr and Mrs H.A. Tiller and family, and a silver cheese dish from Mr. and Mrs. harry Evans and family. (then follows a list of those present.)
