Robert Charles Edward Trueman Roberts was born 14 April 1913 and died 23 April 2013 aged 100 years

The marriage of Amy Maud, second daughter of Mr and Mrs A. R. Wooding ("Te Moana," Ward), to Edward Trueman, only son of Mr E. Roberts ("Riverside," Culverden), and of the late Mrs Roberts, was celebrated recently at St. Peter's Church, Ward, the ceremony being performed by the Rev. G. Barker. Miss Cecily Mills was the organist.

Mr Wooding escorted his daughter to the church, which had been beautifully decorated by friends of the bride. Miss Eileen Wooding, the bride's sister, was bridesmaid, Misses Margaret and Helen Roberts, the bridegroom's sisters, were flower-girls, and Mr William L. Cardwell attended the bridegroom as best man.

The bride's trained frock of cream crepe cavalcade was caught at the slightly cowled neckline with a spray of orange blossom and clusters of similar blossoms, which had been worn by the bridegroom's mother, held in place the veil of embroidered tulle. She carried a bouquet of Madonna lilies and roses.

The bridesmaid's frock was of Margaret Rose pink tree-back crepe, and was made with a fully flared skirt, puffed sleeves, and a round neck with vandyked trimming of narrow black ribbon velvet. A black velvet sash defined the waist Her picture hat to match her frock was trimmed with black velvet and pink rosebuds, and her bouquet was composed of pink roses and blue cornflowers.

Delphinium blue Victorian frocks patterned with pink rosebuds and forget-me-nots were worn by the flower-girls, and their Bo-Peep hats were trimmed with blue and pink flowers and tied with blue ribbons. Their Victorian posies were of flowers to tone.

The bride's mother wore a frock of black silk serge trimmed with gold stitched braid, and a hat of black gramophone straw. Her flowers were mauve sweet peas and statice. Mrs Roberts wore a frock of chocolate brown crepe de chine, a matching bolero having mustard-coloured revers. Her picture hat matched her frock, and she carried a bouquet of abutilons. Miss Roberts, aunt of the bridegroom, wore a frock of navy blue silk crepe trimmed with a faggoted vestee and a jabot of coffee coloured georgette. Her hat was of navy straw with veiled pink flowers inset in the crown, and her shoulder spray was also of pink flowers.

The bride travelled in a tailored suit of almond green linen, a beige silk blouse, and a chip straw hat with accessories to tone. Mr and Mrs E. T. Roberts will make their home at Culverden.
