The marriage took place on Thursday afternoon, at St. Philip's, Earl's Court road, of Dr. J. Halls-Dally, of Sloane-street, London, and Norah Willoughby, youngest daughter of the late Rev. P. E. Curtois, Vicar of Hemingford Grey, Hunts., and of Mrs. Curtois of Godmanchester, Huntingdon. The Right Rev. the Lord Bishop of London officiated, assisted by the Rev. Huntley Curtois, Vicar of Croxton, Norfolk, and the Rev. Algernon Curtois, of Lincoln, cousins of the bride. She was attired in a soft white satin gown a'princesse, and arranged over a spray of orange-blossom was a Honiton lace veil worn by the bridegroom's mother at her wedding. She carried a lovely shower bouquet of white roses and asparagus fern. The bride was attended by two bridesmaids, Miss Beryl Curtois, cousin, and Miss Stokes, wearing pale mauve crepe de chine Empire gowns, with large white cavalier hats trimmed with mauve, velvet and sprays of Nice roses, and carried bouquets of the same flowers. The bride was given away by her uncle, Mr. Arthur Curtois. The church was prettily decorated with palms and lilies. The service was fully choral, the hymns sung being "The voice that breathed o'er Eden" and "O perfect love." The bishop gave a short address of friendly counsel and advice to the young couple. A solo "The Song of Thanksgiving" was sung while the register was signed, and the bridal party left the church to the strains of "Mendelssohn's Wedding March." A large number of relations and friends were present and attended the reception afterwards held by Mrs. Curtois at 2, Warwick Mansions, kindly lent for the occasion. Later Dr. and Mrs. Halls-Dally left for Cambridge, the bride wearing a heliotrope costume, trimmed with black, and a large picture black hat, with white plumes.
