Wednesday Wedding : 11 September 1906 de Crespigny and Hughes

My great grandparents Constantine Trent Champion de Crespigny (1882 - 1952) and Beatrix Hughes (1884 -1943) were married 107 years ago today.

When looking at the material on Vida Goldstein yesterday, I noticed that a wedding picture was included in the collection donated by Leslie Henderson who was the young bridesmaid.  The other attendants were Miss Edith Minchin (Beaufort) and Miss M. L. Hamilton (Ballarat). Mr George Perry, of Melbourne, was best man, and Mr Balcombe Beggs and Dr. Dunhill were the groomsmen.
