Marriage Notes for Isabel Saunders and Launcelott Wyndham:
The following article appeared in the Gleaner on Monday, September 16, 1912:
The Society wedding of the present year took place on Saturday afternoon, when in the present of the cream of the elite of Kingston and St. Andrew, Miss Isabel Hora Louise, eldest daughter of Dr. Frank Saunders and Mrs. Saunders of this city, was married to Major Launcelott Charles William Wyndham, of the Highland Light Infantry, and the late A.D.C. to His Excellency the Governor.
The wedding had been looked forward to as quite the society even of the season, and long before the hour fixed for the ceremony, the spacious Scotch Church was filled with the invited guests and scores upon scores of fashionably attired ladies who were there as keenly interested spectators.
The sacred edifice had been well near converted into a palm and flower conservatory, the effect being most pleasing to the eye. Palms lined the aisles; overhead there were garlands and festoons of beauty roses, ferns, and mosses, which also covered the front of the pulpit and altar. The floral decorations were certainly the most beautiful seen at a wedding for years past; and was the work of several of the ladies connected with the Kirk.
The marriages ceremony was performed, according to simple ritual of the Scotch National Church, by the Rev. W. Graham, the Pastor, the service being fully choral, special music, instrumental and choral being rendered for the occasion.
It was 2.5 p.m. that the bridal party reached the Church, and Miss Saunders, as she walked up the aisle on the arm of her father, made A CHARMING BRIDE indeed. Her dress was of ivory charmeuse, trimmed with real lace, and pearl of silver embroidery and orange blossoms. Miss Saunders carried a boquet of cactus dahlias, real orange blossoms and white heather.
The bridesmaids, Miss Irene Saunders (a sister) and Miss Ena Clark, also wore very pretty dresses of ivory, charmeuse, trimmed with twine coloured lace. They wore white crinoline hats with pink roses and carried pink and white rose boquets.
Mrs. Frank Saunders, mother of the bride, wore a grey poplin dress with a black hat.
Major Parsons was Major Wyndham's best man.
While the bride and bridegroom, and the witnesses, including His Excellency the Governor were in the vestry, signing the registry, the choir sang a special anthem and a solo was rendered. On coming from the vestry, the bridal party left by the north door, passing under an arch of swords formed by the military officers present. The reception, which was being largely attended was held at the North Street home of the bride's parents. After RECEIVING THE FELICITATIONS and congratulations of the assembled party, Major Wyndham and his bride motored to the Railway Station where they traveled by the Norman car to Spanish Town. From this place they went by motor to Shaw Park, one of Sir John Pringle's properties, where the honeymoon will be spent.
Major and Mrs. Wyndham will sail direct for England on the 3rd prox, traveling on the new steamship Obagres, and it is just possible that after a stay in the mother country will go out to Uganda where the gallant army officer was engaged up to a little over a year ago, on a very responsible mission for the British Government.
Among the invited guest who attended the ceremony at the Church and reception were: His Excellency the Governor and Capt. Peacock A.D.C., Hon. Lt. Col. Ward, His Hon. Mr. Justice Cargill and Mrs. Cargill, Dr. G. C. Henderson, Hon. J. R. Mrs. And Miss Williams, Mr. and Mrs. J. F. Milholland, Mr. and Mrs. R. and the Misses Nosworthy, Mr. and Mrs. W.

I. and Mrs. Williams, Mr. Mrs. And the Misses E. W. Lucie-Smith, Mr. Mrs. And the Misses J. B. Lucie-Smith, Hon and Mrs. Robert Johnstone and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. F. N. Isaacs and Miss Isaacs, Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Cargill, Mr. L. J. Stone, Mrs. Arthur Farquharson and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Gooch, Mr., Mrs. And the Misses. R. S. Haughton, Hon. P. R. A.
