At St. John's Church (Norway), Toronto, a pretty wedding was solemnized between Doris Agnes Ryce and Leading Seaman Gordon Bruce Robertson, son of Pte. and Mrs. George Robertson, Grimsby.

The church was decorated with white 'mums. Rev. Briarley Browne, the rector, officiated, and W.H. Mould presided at the organ. The bride, given in marriage by her father, wore a white brocaded satin gown, with sweetheart neckline, and fashioned on princess lines, long sleeves and a small train, with shoulder length veil and coronet of seed pearls. She carried a bouquet of red roses and baby's breath.

Miss Margaret Robertson, sister of the groom, was maid of honour, and wore a gown of pale blue net over blue taffeta, blue coronet with veil, and carried a bouquet of yellow roses. Miss Joyce Allen, the bridesmaid, wore a pink gown and headdress, and carried pink roses. Miss Phyllis Best, cousin of the groom, was the flower girl, wearing a gown of pink taffeta and a headdress of flowers, and carrying a pretty nosegay.

John M. Ryce, brother of the bride, was best man, and ushering the guests were Arthur Robertson, Grimsby, and James Forsythe, Toronto.

At the reception held at the home of the bride's parents, Elmer Avenue, the bride's mother wore a gown of pale blue crepe with black accessories and corsage of cerise roses, the groom's mother wearing a pale gold crepe gown with black accessories and corsage of bronze 'mums.

The couple left on a short trip to Niagara Falls, the bride travelling in a Queen Elizabeth blue wool frock with black accessories.

Besides guests from Hamilton, Long Branch, Camp Borden and Toronto, the following were in attendance from Grimsby, remaining over the weekend: Mesdames W.D. Warner, Geo. Warner, Alf. MacMillan, S.G. Clay and P. Mason.
