Taranaki Herald, Opunake: 3 Aug 1904: Snow fell for about two hours on Wednesday evening. Hail showers have been frequent during the week, and the weather is still very cold.
A prettv and rather novel wedding was solemnised at the Anglican church by the Rev. T. H. Rawnley on Wednesday morning, the contracting parties being Mr S. Clegg, of Awatuna, and Miss  Prosser, of Opunake. The bride was dressed in a neat sage-green travelling dress, while the bridesmaids were dressed one in royal blue and the other in red. It was called a rainbow wedding.
