The marriage of Miss Margaret Russell, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John W. Russell, to Mr. Edward Tockyer Nelles, youngest son of the late Walter H. Nelles of Grimsby, took place Wednesday afternoon, May 23rd, at the home of the bride's parents, Evelyn crescent, Toronto. Rev. James Wilson officiated. The bride, who was unattended, was given away by her father, and looked charming in a white Canton crepe with pearl trimmings, large white hat with lilacs and roses, and carried an old-fashioned nosegay of sweetheart roses, forget-me-nots and pansies. She wore the gift of the groom, a bracelet of pearls. The rooms were fragrant with roses and snapdragons. The guests were received in the living room by Mrs. Russell, mother of the bride, and Mrs. Ernest Watkins, sister of the groom, the former in grey crepe romain with mauve sweet peas, and the latter in black and white lace with white hat. Miss Helen Russell, sister of the bride, wore beige crepe de chine, embroidered and beaded in Oriental design, with turban to match, and corsage of coral sweet peas. Some of the out-of-town guests were: Mrs. Henry McCleary, New York; Mr. and Mrs. A.F. Hewish, Mr. and Mrs. Percy Dodson, Hamilton; Mr. and Mrs. D. Davis, Erie, Pa.; Mr. and Mrs. D.A. McNabb, Orillia; Mr. and Mrs. Norman Nelles, Grimsby; Mrs. George Pettit, Grimsby; Mr. and Mrs. Bob Nelles, Thorold. Mr. and Mrs. Nelles left on a motor trip to the United States, the bride wearing brown crepe romain with brown cape and hat to match. On their return they will be at 28 Edgar avenue, Rosedale, Toronto, for the summer months.
