In St. John's Presbyterian Church, Grimsby, on Wednesday afternoon, Sept. 15th, at 4:30, Ella Irene, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Beamer, was united in marriage to Rifleman Lloyd Gage Fair, son of Mr. George Fair and the late Mrs. Fair, Grimsby Beach, Rev. G. Taylor-Munro officiating. The church was decked with gladioli, palms and ferns for the occasion. Before the ceremony Mrs. J.Shields sang "Oh Promise Me", and during the signing of the register, "Because", accompanied by Mrs. M. Tweney. The bride, given in marriage by her father, wore a gown of embossed white satin fashioned on princess lines. From her matching sweetheart halo fell a long trailing embroidered veil. She carried Better Times roses with bouvardia and rosebud shower, and wore the groom's gift, a locket. The bride's attendants were Miss June Black, maid of honour, wearing baby pink organza with matching head-dress, and Miss Bernice Chase, bridesmaid, wearing blue sheer and matching head-dress. Both carried gladioli and bouvardia. The little flower girl, Myrla Black, cousin of the bride, wore orchid sheer with matching head-dress and carried a nosegay of Joanna Hill roses, sweet peas and baby's breath. Each wore a sterling silver bracelet, the gift of the bride. The groomsman was Rifleman Oscar Beamer, and the ushers were Ross Beamer, Milan Krick and Ken Spencer. R.C.A.F. A reception for 75 guests was held at the Village Inn, Grimsby, where the bride's mother received in black crepe and pink lace dress with black accessories and Joanna Hill roses. She was assisted by Mrs. Robert Cole, sister of the groom, wearing blue crepe with corsage of pink rosebuds. The young couple left by motor for points east, the bride travelling in a two piece ensemble of black crepe trimmed with turquoise blue. On their return, the bride will remain in Grimsby and the groom will rejoin his unit.
