Thames (NZ): First Motor Wedding 1913

Thames Star, Issue 14522, 14 May 1913, Page 4
A 'Thames First' event  - the first time a motor car was used on the wedding day.

The marriage took place at the St Francis' Church in Willoughby Street, Thames.

It was the marriage of Mr Samuel DEVCICH of Puriri to Miss Matty MERSEP of Auckland. 

"The bridal party arrived at and departed from church in motor cars."

What a sight it would have been for the town!

If anyone has a photo of the wedding, I would love to include them in this post:)
