  • 24 Dec 1914, The marriage took place at St. Mary's, West Perth, last Wednesday evening, of Mr. Robert Canning and Miss Betty Lecky. The ceremony was followed by a very pleasant reception and supper at Palace Court.7
  • 3 Jan 1915, An interesting local wedding was that of Miss Betty Lecky, formerly of the Lands Department, eldest daughter of the late Mr. Lecky, one time harbormaster at Carnarvon, to Mr. Robert Canning, son of Mr. Canning of the Lands Department. The ceremony took place at St Mary's Anglican Church, Colin-street, West Perth, on the evening of Wednesday, December 16. The bride wore a trained gown of white satin, veiled in embroidered crepe-de-chine, over which flowed the soft folds of a tulle veil, caught into a mob cap by sprays of orange blossom. She carried a large sheaf of white lilies. The one maid-in-waiting was Miss Star Lord, eldest daughter of Mrs. W. Lord, of West Perth, who wore a becoming white frock veiled in shadow lace, blue hat swathed with an ostrich plume of the same color, and relieved by a pink-silk rose. The bouquet was of pink carnations. After the service supper was served at Palace Court, midst a profusion of carnations and ferns. The happy couple left to spend their honeymoon at Mandurah, the bride travelling in a coat and skirt of Wedgwood blue crêpé de chine, a soft white vest of lace, and Paris model hat in the same shade of blue. They will live at Guildford.8
  • 19 Jan 1915, WEDDING OF A POPULAR. EX-BENDIGONIAN.
    Many Bendigonians will remember pretty and petite Miss Fluffie Leckie, niece of Mr. Robert Walker, with whose family she lived for so many years in this city when her uncle was proprietor of the "Evening Mail." Miss Lecky was the eldest daughter of the late Mr. Lecky, erstwhile harbormaster at Carnarvon, West Australia, and her marriage to Mr. R. Canning, of the Lands department in Perth, created quite a stir among many old Bendigonians now located in that city, as well as the many friends the young lady has acquired since she came to Perth to enter the Government Lands department herself. She is a particularly gifted girl, and her brains may be envied her by many of the sterner sex. Mr. Canning is the representative of the oldest W.A. families. The wedding took place at the end of last year at 7.30 pm at St. Mary's Anglican Church West Perth, the church being crowded with guests and spectators, and also very artistically decorated for the occasion. The bride, who looked lovely, wore a very beautiful trained gown of soft, rich satin veiled in embroidered crepe-de-chine; a soft tulle veil caught into a mob cap-like effect by sprays of orange blossoms, and a head of white lilies completed a lovely effect. Miss Star Lord was sole maid of honour, and wore an extremely chic white frock, covered with shadow lace and pretty blue hat, with feather en suite and pale pink rose, and a large posy of pink carnations was carried. After the ceremony supper was served at Palace Court, and a large reception was also held. The honeymoon was spent at Mandworth. The bride looked very sweet in a travelling coat and skirt of Wedgwood blue crepe-de-chine, with soft vest of white lace and a Paris model hat of the same shade of blue. The happy couple will reside at Guildford. Mrs. Canning's wedding gifts were numerous and lovely.
