In St. John's Presbyterian Church, Grimsby, at 4 o'clock on Saturday afternoon, the wedding of Clover Marguerite, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Merritt, and Charles Wesley, son of Mr. and Mrs. Wilbert Peterson, was solemnized, with the pastor, Rev. G. Taylor-Munro, officiating. The church was beautifully decorated with palms and gladioli.

The bride, given in marriage by her father, was charming in a gown of white lace which buttoned down to the low waist from which the full skirt fell in a long train. Long sleeves tapered to points at the wrist; and a coronet of lace and orange blossoms held her full-length veil of embroidered net. Her only jewelry was a heart-shaped locket, the gift of the groom. She carried a bouquet of American Beauty roses.

Her sister, Miss Olive Merritt, was her bridesmaid, wearing a gown of Romance Blue silk jersey with a shoulder-length veil of net held in place by a halo of blue and pink flowers. She carried pink roses.

The best man was Mr. George Bibby, of Hamilton. The ushers were Lorne Merritt, brother of the bride, and Fred Leigh, brother-in-law of the bride.

Mrs. M. Tweeney played the wedding march, and Mrs. Hunter sang "Because" during the signing of the register.

The bride's mother wore a powder blue crepe dress with black accessories. The groom's mother wore a figured blue sheer dress with white accessories. Each wore a corsage of pink roses.

The reception, attended by 50 guests, was held at the home of the bride's parents, Maple Ave., after which the bride and groom left on a motor trip through Northern Ontario, the bride travelling in a gray suit with navy accessories. On their return,Mr. and Mrs. Charles Peterson will reside at VanWagner's Beach, Hamilton.
