Signale für die Musikalische Welt, 12 February 1868 issue: Cöln. ... Dasselbe Konzert brachte eine neue Ouverture zu Waldmeisters Brautfahrt von Friedrich Gernsheim... (another magazine describes a performance from manuscript in Cöln sometime around April 1868.) Seems to have received several performances to good notices in 1868, early 1869. Publication of the overture is mentioned in a Cranz advertisement (but not until) an October 1872 journal issue.
Goltermann also composed an overture on this same subject (by Roquette?) about this same time, his Op.37.
