Knox United Church, Beamsville, at 3:00 o'clock Saturday afternoon was the scene of a pretty wedding, when Margaret Helen, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Peter Van Every, became the bride of Dr. Charles Russell Wray, Beamsville, son of Mrs. George Wray, Hamilton. Rev. A. DeRose conducted the ceremony. Tall standards of gladioli and ferns decorated the church. Mrs. Clare Robinson, Waterford, presided at the organ, and Miss Blossom Claus, Beamsville, was the soloist. The bride was given in marriage by her father. She wore a lovely princess gown of orchid point desprit over taffeta, which had a redingote of matching lace fashioned with panels, and full puffed sleeves. Her small hat was of orchid crepe, finely tucked, and she wore lace mittens and dainty silver sandals. Her nosegay was of orchids and lilies of the valley. Miss Agnes Wray, sister of the groom, was the bridesmaid, wearing a frock of pink lace and taffeta, with matching accessories, and carrying pink roses. Little Rachel Thompson was flower girl, frocked in blue point desprit, wearing a bandeau of pink rosebuds, and carrying rosebuds. Mr. Murray Van Every, brother of the bride was best man. The ushers were Mr. James Carson and Dr. W.L. Whitelock, Hamilton. A reception was held at the home of the bride's parents, King Street east, Beamsville. The house was decorated with gladioli and ferns. The bride's table was arranged with pink sweet peas, pink roses and baby's breath and lighted with tall white tapers. The bride's mother wore blue French chiffon, with white hat and accessories, and a bouquet of white gardenias and lilies of the valley. The groom's mother wore black flowered chiffon over yellow taffeta, black hat and bouquet of Talisman roses.
