On Wednesday, February 23rd, at 3 o'clock, a pretty wedding was solemnized at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Harvey Barnim, Main Street East, Grimsby, when Mary Lillian Wilcox, younger daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Henry Wilcox, became the bride of Robert Sloan McKirgan, son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Thomas McKirgan of Glasgow, Scotland. Rev. J.H. Blair of Central Tabernacle, Hamilton, officiated. Given in marriage by Mr. Harvey Barnim, the bride wore a two piece dress of azure blue brocaded crepe and matching hat, with shoulder length veil. She wore a corsage of Sweetheart roses, and carried a white Bible with streamers adorned with pink flowers. Her bridesmaid, Miss Muriel Morris, was attired in a beige dress with brown accessories and wore a corsage of Talisman roses. Little Miss Heather McKirgan as flower girl looked very sweet in a rose taffeta dress and carried a nosegay of sweet peas and roses. Mr. Gordon Wilcox, cousin of the bride, assisted the groom. The house was beautifully decorated with ferns and flowers. A reception at the Village Inn followed the ceremony. The table was centred with spring flowers, and the wedding cake. Twelve guests were present. The bride and groom left for a short honeymoon, after which they will reside in Hamilton.
