Marriage of CJ Endert and JGA Schabeck / Schabeek (Dutch), 8 September 1923
Authors: 

Marriage of Carel Johan Endert and Jacoba Geertruida Adriana Schabeck (Schabeek). My grandfather Pieter Marks (1893-1981) was employed at that time - like the groom - by the Dutch East Indies Commercial Bank, the Nederlandsch-Indische Handelsbank. My grandfather is the young man (30) 2nd from the right. Carel Johan Endert, at this time former board member of the Nationale Handelsbank N.V., passed away in the Netherlands in the age of 75 on 24 April 1976.

Thanks! Yes, that's the one! I had been trying to find the marriage on the web but was unaware of the existence of that web site. Many thanks for this!!

The text from the news paper clipping you referred to reads:-

     "The marriage was solemnised at St. John's Cathedral on Saturday afternoon, or Mr. C.J. Endert, of the staff of the Netherlands India Commercial Bank, to Miss J.G.A. Schabeck, daughter of Mr. S.J. Schabeck, civil servant, Netherlands Indian Government. The Chaplain of the Cathedral (the Rev. H.V. Copley Moyle) officiated at the service.

     The bride, who was given away by her father, was attired in a gown of crepe de Chine richly emroidered with net, the bride's train also being embroidered, whilst her veil was surmounted with a wreath of orange blossoms. She was attended by a page-boy, Master J.C. Woutman, who wore a costume of white silk. The duties of 'best man' were fulfilled by Mr. P. Marks.

     A reception, which was largely attended, was afterwards held at the Hongkong Hotel. The bride's going away costume was made of Shantung silk with a small red hat."
