A very charming wedding was solemnized in St. Andrew's Anglican Church on Saturday afternoon, June 6th, at 3 p.m., when Rev. J.A. Ballard united in marriage Dorothy, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. R. Neale, Grimsby, and Robert Cosby, son of Mr. Oscar Cosby and the late Mrs. Cosby, North Grimsby. The bride, given in marriage by her father, was lovely in a gown of white embroidered French organdy over taffeta made on princess lines. Her embroidered net veil, held in place by a halo of orange blossoms,fell in a long train. She carried an arm bouquet of Talisman roses. Her only attendant, a sister, Miss Mary Neale, was gowned in lemon chiffon chenille over taffeta made with a full skirt. With it she wore a matching halo with shoulder length veil and carried a bouquet of blue cornflowers and white sweet peas. Gunner Victor Cosby, of St. John, N.B., brother of the groom, was best man. The ushers were Robert Neale,Jr. and V.S. Harry Hilts, R.C.N.V.R., Hamilton. The wedding music was played by Miss Gladys West of Beamsville, and during the signing of the register, Miss Douglas Dick, of Grimsby, sang "Because".

Immediately after the ceremony a reception was held at the home of the bride's parents. The house was decorated with orange blossoms and pink and white streamers. Mrs. Neale, receiving at the door, wore a dress of powder blue crepe with white accessories and a corsage of pink rosebuds. After the reception the young couple left for a wedding trip to Northern Ontario, the bride choosing for travelling a beige and luggage tan redingote ensemble with matching accessories and wearing a sapphire pendent, gift of the groom. They are expected back on June 14th and upon returning will reside in Grimsby. Out-of-town guests at the wedding were from Hamilton, St. Catharines, Smithville and Beamsville.
