Frances von Bunsen in Heidelberg - 12 September, 1854

from Letter from Baroness Bunsen to her sister Lady Hall, 14 Sept. 1855, pages 188-189:

My precious Theodora was married on Wednesday the 12th. The wedding-day was bright and cheerful and undisturbed by any untoward occurrence.... The spirit of the English liturgy was in the address and quotation from Scripture, though the form was different and simpler, and ushered in and closed by hymns sung with a vast power of voices, for the church was as full as it could hold.
