On Wednesday, at 4 o'clock, a very pretty wedding was solemnized in the Church of Redeemer, Stoney Creek - Rev. Mr. Thompson officiating - when Phyllis, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Bland, Stoney Creek, became the bride of Leonard Eames, son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Eames, 46 Blake street, Hamilton (formerly of Grimsby).
The winsome bride, who was given in marriage by her father, looked charming in a gown of ivory georgette, the front drape was held in place with pearl cavershons, silver lace trimming and panels and flowing sleeves, and a tulle veil, with head band of pearls, caught at the sides with cavershons of orange blossoms, carrying a shower bouquet of roses, lilies of the valley and maidenhair fern.
Miss Dorothy Bland, in orchid georgette, with hat to match, carrying Ophelia roses, attended her sister as maid of honor. The bridesmaid, Miss Muriel Eames, sister of the groom, wore orchid georgette, with leghorn hat, carried Ophelia roses also. Mrs. Bland wore a gown of grey flat crepe, with touches of mauve, hat and corsage to match. Mrs. Eames, mother of the groom, was gowned in green Canton crepe, nigger brown hat, corsage of red roses. Mr. Arthur Plank, of Hamilton, was best man; the ushers, were Mr. William Bland, the bride's brother, and Mr. William Hewson, of Grimsby.
The choir, of which the bride was a member, rendered the wedding music, and during the signing of the register, Mr. Elfred Thorley sang "Oh Perfect Love"; Mrs. George Morris presided at the organ.
Following the ceremony, a reception was held in the Parish Hall, beautifully decorated with flowers and wedding bells, where usual toasts were honored and speeches made.
The groom's gift to the bride was a handsome grey fox fur; to the maid of honor, a pearl set onyx ring; the best man, a gold fountain pen; the ushers, gold folding combs; the bridesmaid and organist, strings of pearls.
The bride, donned in a navy suit, grey hat, gloves and shoes, received the good wishes of all, when the happy young couple left on a motor trip to the Muskoka Lakes. On their return they will reside at 179 Rosslyn avenue south, Hamilton.
