The Duke of Roxburghe, the seventeenth peer of the court of St. James, was wedded to Miss May Goelet, daughter of Mrs. Ogden Goelet in November at New York.
The bride is the richest unmarried woman in the United States, and is reputed to be worth $125,000,000 in her own right.
The ceremony was performed by Bishop Doane. The Goelets are in mourning for the late Sir Michael Herbert and the services were simple. St Thomas's Church was beautifully decorated for the occasion, the floral scheme being to make the interior of the edifice as small as possible and to make the church look like an English chapel.
The feature of the decorations was the pulpit, which was a mass of orchids and asparagus plumosa. The reredos were outlined with asparagus and white roses and the altar was dressed in white lilies. On the altar stalls were hung ropes of white roses tied with satin ribbons. In and about the chancel were groups of palms interspersed with Japanese chrysanthemums. The transepts were divided by hedges of palms, shrubs and plants.
From the tops of stone columns were hung baskets of English primroses. The gathering of invited guests was watched by an eager crowd of several hundred curious people, who lined Fifth Avenue near the church.

On the arm of her brother, Robert Goelet, who gave his sister away, was gowned a remarkable Worth creation. It is made of Irish point lace in rose design. The lace was given to Miss Goelet by her mother.
Miss Goelet wore over this a tulle veil caught with a coronet of orange blossoms. The bride wore no jewelry save a pearl necklace.
The bridesmaids wore pink mousseline de sole trimmed with ecru lace and carried muffs and pink roses.
The bridesmaids were Lady Isabel Innes-Ker, sister of the duke; Miss Beatrice Mills, Miss Alice Babcock, Miss Therese Iselin, Miss Marie Haven, Miss Pauline Whittier, Miss Nina Thayer and Miss Martha Johnston.

The wedding service was the Episcopal marriage service, after which the wedding party repaired to the Goelet mansion at 608 Fifth avenue, where two hundred invited guests attended an informal reception. A view of the wedding gifts, which were rich and rare and in great number, was had. The presents are said to aggregate over a million dollars in value.
The feature of the wedding collation was the cutting of an ornamental English wedding cake.
The Duke and Duchess of Roxburghe will spend part of their honeymoon at the Goelet house in Newport, Rhode Island, and then later proceed to Floors Castle, the duke's palace, in Scotland.
