Their wedding was reported on p.10 of The Hong Kong Telegraph, 1913-11-18:


A quiet, but none the less pretty, Wedding was celebrated at St. John’s Cathedral this morning when Mr Lionel Lammert was married to Miss O’Dell, who recently arrived from Bedford, England. The event was attended by a large number of the intimate friends of the bridegroom, and the ceremony was performed by the Rev. V.H. Copley Moyle, Mr Denman Fuller being at the organ.

The bride, who was charmingly attired, was given away by Mr George Lammert, the eldest brother of the bridegroom, while Miss Shaw attended as bridesmaid. Mr Harold Seth was "best man.”

After the wedding a reception was held at the residence of Mrs G.R. Lammert, Lyeemoon, Barker Road, The Peak, when the usual toasts were honoured. Mr and Mrs Lammert subsequently left for Macao, where the honeymoon is being spent.
