In Trinity United Church, Grimsby, on Saturday afternoon, at 4 o'clock, the wedding was solemnized of Betty Eileen, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James I. Theal, Grimsby, to L.A.C. William Daniel Wells, Guelph, son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles W. Wells, Palmerston. Rev. W.J. Watt conducted the marriage ceremony. Mr. Kenneth Baxter played the wedding music, and Mrs. J.S. Shields sang "Still as the Night", and "Through the Years". The church was decorated with baskets and tall standards of pink roses, delphinium and Shasta daisies.

The bride was given in marriage by her father. She wore a white gown, cut on princess line, with white lace bodice and full point d'esprit skirt. Her three-quarter length veil of tulle was held in place with white flowers, and she carried a bouquet of white gladioli, bouvardia, and blue delphiniums. Her attendant, Miss Jan Walters, wore heavenly blue point d'esprit, with shoulder veil of tulle, held with pink flowers, matching her bouquet of Rapture roses and sweet peas. The best man was William Harley of Welland, cousin of the groom. Mr. Lloyd Theal, Grimsby, cousin of the bride, and Mr. John Wells, Palmerston, brother of the groom, were ushers.

A reception was held at the home of the bride, for 60 guests, the bride's mother receiving in a two piece black and white suit, with white hat, and white accessories and corsage of white carnations. She was assisted by the mother of the groom, who wore a dress of navy sheer, with navy and white hat and accessories, and corsage of pink sweet peas and Sweetheart roses.

The couple left on a wedding trip to Manitoulin Island, the bride wearing a navy sheer two-piece dress with white hat and white accessories. On their return they will reside in Guelph.
