Marriage of Mr T Shaw and Miss Sinfoil

Marriage of Mr. T. Shaw and Miss Sinfoil.

A pretty wedding took place on Tuesday in the Parish Church, Spondon, the bride being Miss Mary Sinfoil, only daughter of Mr. & Mrs. Charles Sinfoil, of "Charnwood" Spondon, and the bridegroom Mr. T. Shaw, eldest son of Mr Shaw, Breadsall. The ser­vice which was fully choral, was conducted by the vicar of Spondon, Rev. H. C. Brockle­hurst, B.A. The Spondon branch of the Girls' Friendly Society choir rendered vocal assistance, and Miss Dinn presided at the organ.

The bride wore an ivory marocain dress trimmed with lace, with a head dress of orange blossoms, and carried a spray bouquet of pink carnations. She was attended by Miss Dorothy Cooper, Miss Winifred Cooper (cousins) and Miss Margery Keeling, niece of the bridegroom, who respectively wore blue silk, yellow crepe malquette and pink silk dresses, and carried boquets of tulips. The bride was given away by her father. Mr. Joseph Shaw, brother of the bridegroom, acted as best man.

A reception was afterwards held in the Mission Room. Mr. and Mrs. Shaw, who will shortly take up their residence in Cambridge street Spondon, were the recipients of numer­ous and costly presents, one of the gifts being a case of dessert spoons and forks from the members of the Girls' Friendly Society, to which body the bride has been attached for a number of years.

The above is quoted verbatim from the Derbyshire Advertiser for Thursday 7th Feb 1930. The Derby Daily Telegraph for Tuesday 4th Feb 1930 states the wedding took place at St. Werbugh’s church that day and gives further information, viz: Mary Sinfoil to Thomas Alfred Shaw of First Farm, Breadsall. She is the daughter of Mr & Mrs C W Sinfoil of ‘Charnwood’, Dale Road, Spondon.
