In the presence of only immediate relatives of the contracting parties, which included visitors from Toronto, Ottawa and Hamilton, the marriage of Lilian Mary Irvine to Pilot Officer Albert K. (Bert) Norton, only son of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur P. Norton, Grimsby, took place Tuesday afternoon at 5 p.m. at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. James G. McIntosh, Main St. East. Rev. W.J. Watt of Trinity United Church, assisted by Lieut. J.I. Richardson, pastor of the Grimsby Baptist Church, performed the ceremony and Mrs. George Konkle, sister of the groom, played the wedding music. During the signing of the register Lieut. Richardson sang "I'll walk with you". The bride wore a turquoise crepe dress with matching hat and bouquet of talisman roses. Mrs. Alex Gillespie, sister of the groom, was matron of honor and wore brown crepe with hat to match and gold accessories, her bouquet being also of talisman roses. L.A.C. Jack T. Irvine of Ottawa, brother of the bride, was groomsman. The groom's gift to his bride was a bracelet watch of natural gold, to the groomsman a gold key chain and the bride's gift to her matron of honor, gold heart shaped earrings. The home was profusely decorated with palms, ferns, cyclamen and smilax and the bride's table with pink snapdragons and candles. During the reception that followed the ceremony a dainty buffet supper was served and the usual toasts given and responded to. The bridal couple left on a honeymoon trip to Toronto and Montreal and on their return the bride will continue to make her home with her parents while her husband in on active duty as a pilot with the Royal Canadian Air Force.
