Full Text

The lovely old home of Mr. and Mrs. Hugh A. Campbell, Main West, was the scene of a pretty wedding on Saturday afternoon, when their daughter, Catharine, became the bride of Gray S. Willson, of Montreal, son of Dr. and Mrs. W.H. Willson, of Winnipeg.

For the ceremony, performed by Rev. Fred Manning Fifty United Church, Winona, the bridal couple took their place under a bell of white lilacs and pink tulips, in the bay window of the drawing room.

The bride, given in marriage by her father, was gowned in white silk jersey, cut on princess lines, with short train, and wore a halo cap of heirloom lace with fingertip veil. She carried an old fashioned bouquet of shaded sweetheart roses and lilies of the valley in a frill of real lace.

Miss Margery Miller, Dunnville, bride's attendant, wore heavenly blue silk jersey also princess style, with fitted jacket, and a matching hat with flared brim. Her flowers were a sheaf of pink butterfly roses. Charles Noble, of Burlington, was the groomsman.

The bride's mother was becomingly gowned in dusty rose crepe with wine applique, and wine shoes, a corsage of rapture roses and heliotrope completing the ensemble.

Miss Beatrice Fitzgerald, wearing a pretty frock of turquoise blue, with corsage of token and talisman roses, played the wedding music.

The grandparents of the bride, Mr. and Mrs. F.A. Campbell, of Mitchell, were among the guests. Mrs. Campbell was most attractive in a gown of wine lace with matching corsage of roses, and black hat.

The bride's going-away costume was a navy triple sheer frock, and top coat of lighter blue Harris tweed. With this was worn a red hat of stroller type, navy shoes, navy and red accessories, and a corsage of white and red carnations.

The young couple will make their home in Montreal, where the groom is in Government service, on the Inspection Board, Bomb Division. The bridegroom is a graduate of S.P.S., Toronto, where he received the degree B.S.A. last year. The bride also is a 1941 graduate of University College and a member of Alpha Chi Omega sorority.
