One of the prettiest weddings of the season was solemnized in the historic old St. Andrews Anglican church, Grimsby, on Thursday evening, Sept. 21, 1922, at 8 o'clock, the contracting parties being Miss Helen Liddle, daughter of Thomas and Mrs. Liddle, and Dr. Clifford McKee, son of Thomas and Mrs. McKee of Toronto. The Rev. J. Allan Ballard, rector of St. Andrews, officiated. The young bride,who entered on her father's arm, looked beautiful in a gown of white brocaded satin with trimming of pearls. Her veil of Limerick lace and orange blossoms fell gracefully over her court train of duchess satin lined with shell pink. She carried a shower bouquet of roses and lily of the valley. The two charming bridesmaids were Miss Vida Nelles of Grimsby, wearing pale blue, and Miss Helen Brough of Toronto, wearing peach crepe. Both wore large picture hats, and carried beautiful bouquets of Ophelia roses. Mr. Roy Kensinger of Oshawa supported the groom. The ushers were Mr. Turner Lawrence of Toronto, Mr. Orville Archer of Brighton, and Messrs. Gordon and Charles Burland of Grimsby. During the signing of the register Mrs. LeRoy Grimes of Hamilton sang "Until" very acceptably. The church was very tastefully decorated with autumn flowers and foliage by a number of the bride's girl friends. Following the ceremony Dr. and Mrs. McKee and the bridal party received congratulations and best wishes from friends numbering 150 before an artistic background of flowers at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Liddle. The spacious dining room and library, where a buffet supper was served, were beautifully decorated with flowers as was also the bride's table in the centre. On one side stood the attractive bridal party where the bride cut the cake. Toasts were proposed to the bride, bridesmaids, and the parents of the bride and groom. Mrs. Liddle, mother of the bride, looked charming in a gown of gold cloth and a large hat of blue and gold; Mrs. McKee, mother of the groom, wore a handsome beaded gown of sand colored crepe and large black hat; and many other beautiful gowns were seen. The two little sisters and brothers of the bride were much admired in pale blue and white. The numerous and beautiful gifts were shown upstairs. Before the bride and groom's departure the bride threw her bouquet from the stairs and it was caught by Miss Verna Jarvis. Dr. and Mrs. McKee left on a motor trip through the States, the bride wearing a navy blue taffeta dress, tricotine cloak and hat to match, and black fox fur, the gift of the groom. On their return they will live in Brighton.
