Biography contributed by Faithe Jones

Son of Mrs Elizabeth Brennan, Glenhaven via Parramatta, New South Wales

A quiet but pretty wedding was celebrated at St. Andrew's, Summer Hill, on the 5th inst. when Miss Rose Emeline Bell, of Chipping Norton, near  Liverpool, was married to Mr. Edward Hanley Brennan, manager of the Chipping Norton Soldiers' Settlement (late A.I.F.). As the bridal party  entered the church "The Voice that breathed o'er Eden" was sung and at the close of the ceremony the "Wedding March" was played. The bride, who was given away by her father, looked charming in a dainty frock of white chiffon georgette over silk net with silver designing. Her  embroidered tulle veil was arranged with a circlet of orange blossoms and she carried a shower bouquet of white cactus dahlias, carnation and  roses, with sutin and tulle streamers ; this, with a gold bangle, was the bridegroom's gift. The bride was attended by her sister, Miss May Bell, and Miss Freda Bolliver, the former wearing a frock of white crepe de chine and a hat to tone, the latter white georgette and a black hat. Each carried a bouquet of pink cactus, dahlias and roses with tulle streamers. The bridegroom presented the bridesmaids with acquamarine rings. Canon Smith  officiated and Mr. Joseph Brennan, brother of the bride, was best man.
