Full Text

A quiet and pretty wedding took place on Saturday afternoon, May 23, at the home of the groom's sister, Mrs. Arnold Inglehart, when Jean Roberta Woolley, daughter of Mrs. Jane Woolley of Waterford, Conn., was united in marriage to Sgt. William Edward Metcalfe, son of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur W. Metcalfe of North Grimsby. Rev. W.J. Watt officiated at the ceremony which took place before the fire-place banked high with Dogwood blossoms, ferns, and spring flowers. The bride, given away by her brother, Mr. George Woolley, was lovely in a gown of tucked organdy and carrying a bouquet of white carnations, maiden hair fern, and lily of the valley. A halo of orange blossoms held her veil in place. The bridesmaid, Miss Mary Jane Wilson, of New London, Conn., was charming in a gown of blue organdy with a bandeau of forget-me-nots and carrying a bouquet of coral pink sweet peas. Miss Phyllis MacMillan, niece of the groom, was flower girl and was demure in a floor-length gown of daffodil yellow dotted swiss and carrying a nosegay of roses and sweet peas. The groom was attended by Sgt. Douglas Farrell, Grimsby. Immediately after the ceremony the newly married couple left on a short wedding trip and on their return they will reside in Kingston.
