Wedding dress & veil with silver leaves

The headline on the 1959 newspaper article announcing the marriage of 'Mr and Mrs Keith Philip' reads "Queen Mary Matron Wed". Margaret Veitch had travelled from Berwickshire in Scotland to take up the position of matron of the Queen Mary Maternity Hospital in Dunedin. The article doesn't list her husband's occupation.
