St. Andrew's Anglican Church was the scene of a very pretty wedding on Friday evening, February 11th, 1944, when Beryl Elizabeth, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A.J. Chivers, and Aircraftman Charles Robert Tweney, son of Mrs. Tweney and the late Mr. Charles Tweney, were united in marriage. Rev. J.A. Ballard conducted the service and Mr. Cyril Hingston, St. Catharines, played the wedding music. Miss Marjorie Hildreth, cousin of the bride, sang "Because" during the signing of the register. The bride was given in marriage by her father. She wore a dusty rose silk jersey dress with matching flower hat. She wore a corsage of pink rosebuds and a necklace of pearls, a gift from the groom, and carried a white prayer book decorated with matching roses. Miss Lillian Hildreth was the bridesmaid, gowned in heavenly blue wool crepe, with matching hat and navy blue accessories. Her corsage was of deep red roses. Mr. Fred Peirce of Hamilton, cousin of the groom, was best man. Mr. Ronald Chivers, Grimsby, and Mr. Bob Peirce of Hamilton were ushers. A reception was held at the home of the bride's parents. The bride's mother wore powder blue crepe with black accessories and a corsage of pink roses. The mother of the groom was dressed in olive green, with black accessories and wore a corsage of yellow roses. The couple left on a wedding trip to Toronto, the bride wearing a bronze gold jersey dress, with powder blue coat and hat and navy accessories.
