Description

This article from the wedding column of the Western Mail gives an account of the wedding of Josephine Higgins and Kevin Finucane at St Mary’s Cathedral on 6 January 1930. The bride’s dress is described as a picture frock of soft white satin, with a corsage “cut along medieval lines”, long sleeves and a diamante ornament on the waist. The skirt was ankle-length and embossed with pearl flowers, and she also wore a tulle veil with a circle of silver leaves and orange buds. The reception was held at Keogh’s Hall before the bride and groom left for their future home in Tasmania.
