Full Text

The marriage took place in Grimsby on Saturday, March 29th, of Agnes Frances, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Frederick Neilson Kennedy, of Grimsby, and Lieut. Russell David Holland, R.A.F., son of Mr. and Mrs. William Watkin Holland, Swindon, Wiltshire, England. The ceremony in Trinity United Church, Grimsby, was conducted by Rev. Neil Leckie, while Mr. T.L. Dymond presided at the organ.

Wearing a portrait gown of rich white satin, with pleated fluting adorning the neckline and also outlining the train, the bride was given away by her father. A coronet headdress held in place her long tulle veil, and she carried Easter lilies. Three bridal attendants were Miss Marjorie Swanson, maid of honour, Miss Jane Maeder and Miss June Neilson. They all wore satin faille gowns, the maid of honour being in ice blue, and the bridesmaids in petal pink. Halos of roses formed headdresses, and their bouquets were of pink and white sweet peas and carnations. Mr. Frank Emmerton, Port Credit, was best man, and Messrs. Angus Millar and Charles Flewman ushered the guests. Mrs. Kennedy, mother of the bride, received the guests at a reception held at Elmhurst, home of the bride's parents. She was gowned in mist blue, with a flowered hat. Later the couple left for New York and Washington for their wedding trip, the bride going away in a grey ensemble with halo straw hat and grey squirrel jacket. They will make their home in Grimsby.
