St. Andrew's Anglican Church was the scene of a pretty wedding on Saturday morning, June 13th, at 9:30 o'clock when Miss Helen Marguerite Alldrick, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. Alldrick, became the bride of Mr. Herbert Henley, son of Mr. and Mrs. S.T. Henley, Grimsby. Rev. J.A. Ballard performed the marriage ceremony. The church was effectively decorated with pink and white peonies and orange blossoms.

The bride, given in marriage by her father, was lovely in a gown of Temple Gold Crepe wearing a leghorn hat, trimmed with gold, and brown accessories. She wore a corsage of white roses and sweet peas, and carried a white Prayer Book with white markers, the latter a gift from the members of St. Andrew's Sunday School.

Miss Mary Easton as bridesmaid was gowned in melon rose crepe, picture hat and accessories to match. She carried a bouquet of red roses, sweet peas and baby's breath. Mr. Vernon Croft was the best man.

Mr. David Nicholson, organist and choirmaster of the church, played the wedding music. Prior to the ceremony his selections included Canzonet (R. Bernard Elliott) and Benediction Nuptiale (Hollins). As the bride entered the church he struck up the strains of the "Lohengrin March (Wagner) and during the signing of the register, Mr. Nicholson played (a) The Question; (b) The Answer, by the famous composer, Wolstenholme, and the Mendelssohn Wedding March as the happy couple left the church.

Following the ceremony a reception was held at the home of the bride's parents, Murray Street. The bride's mother and the bridegroom's mother assisted in receiving, the former dressed in a rust crepe gown with brown accessories and wearing a shoulder bouquet of pink roses and sweet peas and the latter in grey with a shoulder bouquet of pink roses and sweet peas. 25 guests sat down to the wedding breakfast, the bride's table being decorated with orange blossoms and favors in white and yellow, with silver and yellow tapers.

Later the young couple left on a motor trip to points in Northern Ontario. The bride travelled in a smart grey suit with matching hat. On their return they will reside in Grimsby.

The bride's gift to the bridesmaid was a silver and onyx compact. The bride presented her bouquet to her grandmother, aged 90, who was present at the wedding.
