Yeng, Shanghai, China, and Miss Lily Chin Ting, eldest daughter of Mr. Chin Ting, 58 Courtenay Place, Wellington. Mrs. Jones (late of Otaki) presided at the organ and played appropriate music. Mr. G. P. Gee was best man, and Mr. George Miller acted as groomsman. The two bridesmaids were the Misses Daisy and Dolly Chin Ting, sisters of the bride.
