Catherine/ Kathleen Carmody

A wedding was celebrated in St. Michael's Cathedral, Wagga, on Wednesday last by the Rev. Fr. Galvin. The bride was Kathleen, eldest daughter of Mrs. M. Carmody, of the All Nations' Hotel, and of the late Mr. M. J. Carmody, of Hillas Creek, and the bridegroom, Mr. Jeremiah Bowe, of County Kilkenny, Ireland, late of the 19th Battalion A.I.F. Mr. Bowe was in uniform, and has served over three years at the front. The bride was given away by her uncle, Mr. Dan Carmody, of Albury, and looked very dainty in her bridal frock of white georgette, embroidered in white and finished with deep bands of crepe de chine. Her hand embroidered tulle veil was worn mob cap fashion, with a wreath of orange blossom's. Her bouquet, the gift of the bridegroom, was composed of white stocks, sweet peas and narcissus, with trails of maiden hair and asparagus ferns. A gold wristlet watch was the bridegroom's present.
