Full Text

Effectively decorated with evergreens and poinsettias, the home of Mr. and Mrs. Angus Johnson, of Grassies, was the setting for a pretty wedding of the Christmas season, when their niece, Violet Mabel Skewes, became the bride of Mr. George Wallington Tuck, eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. G.W. Tuck, of Hamilton. Rev. C.C. McPhee, of Beamsville, officiated.

The bride, given in marriage by her uncle, wore a lovely wool dress of sky-line blue. Her corsage bouquet was red roses. She was attended by Miss Kathleen Scott, of Hamilton, who was attractive in a frock of Magenta wool. She wore a corsage bouquet of Talisman roses.

Mr. Stewart Millar, of Hamilton, was best man.

At the reception which followed, the table was effectively arranged with a linen and lace cloth, and centered with the wedding cake, flanked with tall pink tapers in silver holders. The bride's aunt wore black crepe, embroidered in gold thread, and a corsage of red roses. The groom's mother wore a gown of green wool, and a corsage of red roses.

For travelling the bride wore a grey tweed coat trimmed with opossum and black accessories.
