Wedding party in Merivale

12 January 1910

The wedding party approaches the horse-drawn carriage after their wedding in St Mary's Church, Papanui Road. Miss Rubina (Ruby) Gebbie of "Burnt Hollow" Teddington (on Gebbies Pass Road) married William Walter Cyril Cossgrove on 12 January 1910. They were my grandparents, at St Mary's Anglican Church, Merivale. The scout's guard of honour refers to the groom's father Lt-Colonel David Cossgrove who worked tirelessly to establish scouting in New Zealand from its inception in the U. K. in 1908. Note: The building in the background appears to be the the Sunday School building of the Methodist Church on the corner of Papanui Road and Rugby Street, one block north of St Mary's. However the and place of the Cossgrove-Gebbie wedding are undisputed & verified in official records so perhaps the wedding party walked along Papanui Road to the carriage.
