Full Text

In St. Paul's United Church, Dundas, Saturday afternoon, at 3 o'clock, the wedding was solemnized of Norma June, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Norman W. Lawson, Dundas, formerly of Grimsby, and Mr. Alan Malcolm Wright, son of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas M. Wright, of Hamilton.

Rev. J. Lorne Graham officiated at the ceremony. White standards of delphinium and gladioli decked the church, with a large bouquet on the Communion table. Small clusters of flowers and ribbons marked the guest pews.

Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore a graceful white French lace and satin gown, styled with a round neckline, net insertion and matching lace bertha. The skirt was fashioned on classic lines and her long, tight-fitting sleeves were pointed over the hands. A tiara of seed pearls held in place a long veil of net illusion, and the bride carried a cascade bouquet of red roses and white satin streamers. Attending their sister were Misses Betty and Ena Lawson, both gowned in white organza fashioned with a bustle effect, their mittens being of contrasting heavenly blue lace. Pink roses and ribbons formed their headdresses, and their old fashioned nosegays were of pink roses. The groomsman was Dr. William E. Glass, while those ushering the guests were Messrs. Edward Evans and William Bryan, all of Hamilton. Miss Grace Cooper presided at the organ, and Mrs. Dorothea Durst, of New Hamburg, sang I Love You Truly and Because.

At the reception, which was held in the Mural Room of the Royal Connaught Hotel, 50 guests were received by the mother of the bride and the mother of the groom, the former wearing a heavenly blue gown with pink Milan hat and corsage of pink roses, while the latter was in a dove grey gown, with blue hat, and also had roses as her corsage.

Later the couple left for a wedding trip to New York, the bride travelling in a navy blue summer silk poplin suit dress, with accessories in neutral shade, her hat being of neutral plastic with a navy blue bow. Her flowers were Briarcliff roses. The couple will reside in Hamilton.
