15 Oct 1927

St. John's Church of England, Molong, was packed to the doors on Saturday afternoon, many people remaining outside, on the occasion of the marriage of Kathleen, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. F. Leathem, and James R.  Kerr, son of Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Kerr, of Carcoar. The Rev. J. A. Poole performed the ceremony. 

The bride, who entered the church on the arm of her father, looked exceptionally well in a dress of white crepe de chine, trimmed with silver lace, and wore a wreath and veil (lent by Mrs. Sorenson). She carried a beautiful bouquet of white hyacinths (the gift of Mrs. C. Coyne).

Miss Jean Leathem accompanied her sister as bridesmaid and was dressed in pink crepe de chine with black hat.  Her bouquet of pink, was also the gift of Mrs. Coyne. Mr. Bert Leathem (Coonamble), cousin of the bride, acted as best man. 

Mrs. Poole, who presided at the organ, played 'The Voice that Breath'd O'er Eden,' and during the signing of the register sang ' Oh, Per-feet Love.' At the close of the ceremony a reception was held at the residence of the bride's parents, when the usual toasts were honoured, Rev. J. A. Poole proposing 'The Bride and Bridegroom. 

The honeymoon was spent at Albury, the bride's travelling dress being of wine-coloured crepe de chine, with hat to match. 

A large number of valuable presents were received. The bride's gift to the bridegroom was a travelling rug. The bridegroom's gift to the bride was a gold wristlet watch.  The bridesmaid received a gift of a gold signet ring from the bridegroom.  

Mr. and Mrs. Kerr's future home will be Cookamidgera.
