A very pretty military wedding took place at St. Luke’s Church of England, Liverpool, on Tuesday afternoon, when Sergeant Major Ernest Charles Scott, an original Anzac, formerly of Wollongong, was married to Della Lavina Jarrett, daughter of Mrs. C. Ryan, of George-st., Liverpool.  The Rev. H. J. Noble officiated.  

The bride was given away by her brother, Mr. C. Jarrett.  She looked charming in a gown of white crepe-de-chine and georgette, trimmed with pearls, the wreath and veil arranged in mob fashion, and carried a handsome bouquet of white asters and asparagus ferns, tied with streamers of green and white (the bridegroom’s colors).  The bridesmaid, Miss Mabel Masters (cousin of the bride) wore a pretty frock of pale pink silk voile and white hat and a bouquet of pink and white asters.  Both bride, and bridesmaid wore gold brooches set with diamonds, the gift of the bridegroom.  Mr. Oliver Chalkly, of Liverpool, was best man.  

The happy couple left for Parkes, the bride travelling in a smart navy cloth costume, hat to match of putty and navy trimmings.  Mr. and Mrs. Scott’s future home will be Port Kembla.  Many valuable and useful presents were received.
