In St. Anne's Church, Hamilton, at 9:00 o'clock Saturday morning, Rt. Rev. Monsignor J.W. Englert performed the ceremony uniting in marriage Gertrude Mary, daughter of Mrs. and Mrs. J.H. King, to Mr. Thomas Robert Geeves, Jun., Grimsby, son of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas R. Geeves, Montreal. Daffodils and rose tulips decorated the altar. The bride, given in marriage by her father, wore a lovely frock, with graceful long train, of Spanish lace over satin. Her veil was prettily arranged with orange blossoms, her slippers were of white satin, and she carried a shower bouquet of Bridal roses and lilies of the valley. Miss Dorothy Woods, in a quaint gown of peach taffeta, with silver head dress, and carrying a pretty nosegay, was flower girl. Miss Marie Sims was the maid of honour. She wore pink crepe, with matching hat and carried Briarcliffe roses and mauve sweet peas. Miss Myra Srigley was bridesmaid, gowned in pale blue crepe, with matching hat and carrying yellow roses and mauve sweet peas. Mr. Patrick Conville was best man and the ushers were Mr. John Sims and Mr. C. Stapleton.

Miss Townsend presided at the organ, and Miss Josephine Hamilton was the soloist, singing sweetly, Ave Maria and Because. A reception was held at the S.O.E. hall, Hamilton. Daffodils and tulips decorated the prettily arranged bride's table. Sixty guests were present. Receiving with the wedding party was the bride's mother, in a handsome costume of dove grey crepe with wine trimmings and matching hat. Her shoulder bouquet was of roses and sweet peas; and the groom's mother, becomingly costumed, and wearing a bouquet of sweet peas and roses.

Mr. and Mrs. Geeves left for Buffalo, the bride wearing a gown of green crepe with white fur trimming, matching hat and scarf and coat of seal.

They will reside in Grimsby.

Out of town guests were Mr. and Mrs. T.R. Geeves, Montreal; Mr. and Mrs. W. Ball, Toronto; Mr. and Mrs. A. Davies, Toronto; Mr. and Mrs. F. Jordan, Burlington.
