Bradford, pastor of te Gore Bay Unite d C hurch performed the ceremony.The bride, who was giveni n marriage by her f ather, was lovely in her wedding gown o f white georgette and tulle, her fu ll length veil being ca ught with a coronet of orange blossoms. She carried in he r arms a bouquet of roses, easter lilies and orange blossom s. Miss Elsie Gibbs, sister of the groom,played the weddin g march, (Lohengrin) as the bride entered thetastefully dec orated room upon the arm of her father and took her place b eside the groom beneath a beautiful arch of evergreens an d flowers.
