Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore a gown of embossed nylon, with a short train and full-length veil. She carried red roses and white carnations. Miss Helen Milks, as maid of honour, was gowned in green nylon, her flowers being yellow chrysanthemums.

The bridesmaids, Miss Eileen Theoret and Mrs. Joyce Robinson, wore gowns of yellow nylon, and carried bouquets of white chrysanthemums. Little Margy-Ann Brooks, as flower girl, was dressed in green taffeta, and her nosegay was of mixed flowers. Mr. Fred Hawkins was best man while Messrs. David Heugh and Lloyd Argent were ushers.

Following the service, a reception was held at the Veterans' Service League. The mother of the bride was attired in grey with green and pink flowered hat, while the mother of the groom, also in grey, wore a hat trimmed with gold sequins. For their honeymoon, the couple left for Niagara Falls, N.Y.
