Full Text

The home of the bridegroom's parents, Mr. and Mrs. G.M. Beamer, was the scene of a very pretty wedding when Shirley, only daughter of Mr. and the late Mrs. A.B. Speirs, was united in marriage to Donald John Beamer. The Rev. J.W. Hunt of Hespeler officiated.

The bride entered the room to the strains of the bridal chorus played by Mrs. H.B. Metcalfe, sister of the groom. The bride, given in marriage by her father, wore a floor-length gown of midnight blue chiffon velvet, and carried a bouquet of Briarcliffe roses.

Miss Ethel Howell, wearing an ankle-length gown of blue crepe and carrying a bouquet of pale pink roses, attended the bride. The groom was attended by Mr. Wylie Theal. The house was tastefully decorated in pink and white. Following the ceremony a dainty luncheon was served.

An unusual feature of the occasion was that the happy event occurred on the 39th wedding anniversary of the groom's parents.

Later the bride and groom left on a trip to eastern points in Ontario, the bride travelling in a burgundy ensemble topped by a black coat trimmed with sable.

On their return they will reside in Grimsby.
