Littlewood, U.C., Sandy Street, and Mr. James Ruddle, U.V.F., third son of Mr. Alex. Ruddle, Talbot Street. A big crowd of Ulster Volunteers were present, including some from Clandeboye Camp. The officiating clergyman was the. Rev. Wm. Moore, B.D.. Mr. A. Littlewood, U.C., father, gave the bride away. The bridesmaids were Miss Jeannie Littlewood (sister of the bride), and Miss Maggie Ruddle (sister of the bridegroom). The best man was Mr. Wm. Atwell, U.V.F., who travelled specially from Clandeboye to be present. After the ceremony the happy couple were accorded a popular demonstration, and confetti was the rule. The happy pair afterwards left for Belfast, where the honeymoon will be spent.
