      Morning Bulletin Sat 3 Dec 1927
      CONNOR-O'NEILL On November 14 at St Patrick's Church, Mackay, by Rev Father Byrne, Zelma Kathleen (TopsyŁ), eldest daughter of Mr and Mrs Jack Connor, Loch Erin, Rockhampton to James Henry, third son of James and the later Mrs O'Neill, Pleystowe.

      Morning Bulletin Sat 3 Dec 1927

      Recently at the Roman Catholic Church, Mackay, a very pretty wedding took place, when the contracting parties were James Henry, third son of Mr. James and the late Mrs. O'Neill, of Pleystowe, and Zelma Katherine ("Topsy"), eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Jack Connor, Loch-Erin, Rockhampton. Rev. Father Byrne officiated, and Mrs. Weiske presided at the organ. The bride, who was given away by the father, was frocked in deep cream French crepe de chine, daintily trimmed pin-tucks and guipure lace, finished at side with an Oriental taffeta bow. The veil was worn cap effect, finished at side with tulle and orange blossoms, with dainty train of tulle lined in shell-pink, which was kindly lent by Mrs. Jack Connor, junr. She carried a bouquet of arum lilies tied with tulle streamers. Miss Edna Jackson attended as bridesmaid, being prettily frocked in Madeuna blue mariette trimmed in steel beads, full skirt finished at hem in needle run lace; and she wore a pretty Dolly Varden hat to tone. She carried a bouquet of pink poppies tied with tulle streamers. The little trainbearer, "Billy" Rigby, was frocked in shell-pink mariette trimmed with baby frills, and she carried a basket of tiny pink rosebuds. Mr. Harold Connor acted as best man. The reception was held at "Sans-Souci," the home of Mr. and Mrs. Jack Connor, junr., and the guests were received by the bride's mother, who was gowned in grey mariette heavily beaded in silk beads. The presents were costly and numerous, including many cheques.
