The marriage of Ruby Isabell, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles S. Hatch, 4492 St. Catharines St., Westmount, to Pilot-Officer James Lloyd Bull, Mountain View, son of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Bull, Grimsby, Ont., was solemnized in St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church, Sherbrooke, at 3 o'clock on Monday afternoon, September 6th, the Rev. Fred Williams and the Rev. W. Clow officiating. Gladioli, hydrangea and phlox were used to decorate the church, and Mr. J.J. Scorer presided at the organ, playing the wedding marches and accompanying Miss Jean Larabee, who sang Ave Maria during the signing of the register. The bride,given in marriage by her father, looked charming in a floor-length gown of white slipper satin trimmed with Alencon lace. She wore her aunt's wedding veil of line embroidered net, caught with a cluster of orange blossoms, a watch, a gift of the groom, and was carrying a shower bouquet of Happy Day roses and forget-me-nots. The bridesmaid, Miss Ruth Robinson, was the bride's only attendant and she was wearing a slipper-length frock of Heaven blue crepe, a matching shoulder-length veil caught with pink gladioli florets, and she carried an arm bouquet of toning gladioli.

Mr. Ralph Bull acted as best man and the ushers were Mr. Percy Adams, McMasterville, and Mr. Grandville McClure, Three Rivers, uncle of the bride. Mrs. Hatch, the bride's mother,wore a lace-trimmed jacket dress of bluish beige crepe, with a model hat of navy blue velvet, matching accessories, and a corsage of Talisman roses. Mrs. Bull, the groom's mother, was wearing a dress of cocoa brown crepe with a matching hat and accessories, and a corsage of tea roses.

The reception was held at Mrs. Clifford Goodhue's, 133 Quebec Street, where gladioli, hydrangea and phlox were used to decorate. In the dining room, the wedding cake centered the bride's table which was simply adorned with autumn flowers and harmonizing tapers. Cables of congratulations were read, including one from the groom's brother, Captain Eric Bull, now serving in England. Later the bride and groom left to take the Saguenay cruise, the bride wearing a smart suit of grey wool gabardine, with a matching hat and accessories, and a corsage of pink roses. Upon their return P./O. and Mrs. Bull will take up residence at 196 Burnham Street, Belleville, Ont. The out-of-town guests included Mr. and Mrs. H. Bull, Grimsby, Mrs. H.C. Netterfield and son, Tom Michael, Mr. and Mrs. G.N. McClure, Westmount, Mr. Ralph Bull, Kitchener, and Mrs. Percy Adams, McMasterville. The wedding gifts were numerous and very beautiful including linen, silver, cut crystal and several cheques.
