One of the prettiest church weddings seen here for some time was solemnized by Rev. L.H. Currie in St. John's Presbyterian Church Wednesday, June 21, when Leonard Arthur Bromley, son of Mr. and Mrs. C.H. Bromley, was united to Ada Mary Jackson, youngest daughter of Mrs. Elizabeth and the late David Jackson, Main Street West. Stanley Louks assisted the groom while Miss Beulah Marsh acted as bridesmaid. The bride was given away by her brother, Walter D. Jackson of Cobourg; Mrs. Alex. Scott played the wedding march from Lohengrin; and Mrs. David Hunter sang "Because". The bride was dressed in kittens-ear satin with Venetian point lace with silver girdle and silver slippers to match, and the customary bridal veil and coronet of orange blossoms. The bridesmaid wore shell pink with panels of white lace and pink and white hat to match. [details of church and home floral decorations] The groom's gift to the bride was a platinum pin set with emeralds and sapphires; to the bridesmaid a brooch, and to the groomsman a pair of cuff links; to Mrs. Scott a silver vase and to Mrs. Hunter a rose jar. The guests to the number of about 80 were lavish with their gifts, and among those that should be especially mentioned were those from the Girl Guides Council, from the Girl Guides, from the pupils in Miss Jackson's class at school, and from the choir of St. John's Church of which both the bride and Mr. Bromley are members. Among the guests from a distance were Mr. and Mrs. Robert Bielby of Buffalo, Mrs. Hector Warner of Toronto, Mr. and Mrs. W.H. Morris of Shawinigan Falls, Que., Mr. and Mrs. John Green and Fred Green, and Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Bush of Caistor, Walter D. Jackson of Cobourg, Andrew M. Jackson of Hamilton, and many others from Hamilton, Lyndoch, Stoney Creek and Beamsville. Mr. and Mrs. Bromley left for the R. & N. O. trip [sic] to the Saugenay, and on their return will reside in Grimsby. In connection with the wedding it might be mentioned that it is the first church wedding that has been held in St. John's church since David and Mrs. Allan were married in 1894.
