A pretty wedding took place Monday afternoon, September 27, at the home of the bride's aunt, Mrs. Arthur Woodcock, Grimsby, when Miss Marion Lawson, elder daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Leonard J. Lawson, St. Catharines, and Pte. Robert Homer, of Sydney, N.S., youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. George Homer, St. Catharines, were united in marriage. Rev. W.J. Watt, Grimsby, conducted the double-ring ceremony, and Miss Betty Fisher, Grimsby, cousin of the bride, played the wedding music.

The bride, given in marriage by her father, wore a white silk crepe gown, torso style, a fingertip-length veil, and carried a bouquet of white chrysanthemums. She also wore pearls, the groom's gift. Her aunt, Mrs. Hugh Merritt, Grimsby, a bride of two weeks, was matron of honour, wearing her wedding gown of white brocaded satin and carrying pink gladioli. The bridesmaids, Miss Joyce Shelton and Miss Ruth Shelton, Grimsby, cousins of the bride, wore white silk jersey dresses and carried pink gladioli. The junior bridesmaids, Miss Shirley Lawson, sister of the bride, and Miss Beverley Woodcock, cousin of the bride, and the little flower girl, Miss Beryl Woodcock, wore dresses of white net over white silk jersey and carried white chrysanthemums. The groom was assisted by his brother, Mr. Frank Homer, St. Catharines.

At the reception, following the ceremony, Mrs. Lawson, mother of the bride, received in a two-piece crepe dress and wore a corsage bouquet of white carnations. Mrs. Homer, mother of the groom, also received, wearing a dress of blue lace and crepe and corsage bouquet of red rosebuds. The wedding supper was served at Mrs. Woodcock's to 50 guests from Grimsby, St. Catharines, Niagara Falls and Dundas. The reception rooms and bride's table were decorated in pink and white. For the wedding trip to London, the bride wore a two-piece dress of black crepe with black accessories and silver fox furs.
