Miss Margaret Grace Schmuir and Mr. Charles Albert Hill were the principals in a charming nuptial ceremony July 27 in Calvary Baptist Church, Brantford, at 3 p.m. Rev. C.C. Boyter heard their wedding vows. The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William J. Schmuir, 18 Lawrence Street, Brantford, and the groom is the son of Mrs. Della Hill (formerly of Grimsby), 11 Huron Street, Brantford, and the late Mr. W.A. Hill. She is a granddaughter of Mrs. Elora Phipps, Grimsby.

The ceremony took place in a setting of mixed gladioli, and Mrs. J. Ruth played traditional wedding music. Accompanied to the altar by her father, the bride wore a smart white gabardine suit, white halo hat trimmed with sprays of lily-of-the-valley and veiling, matching accessories, and she carried a dainty nosegay of gladioli, red roses and orange blossoms, tied with white streamers. In contrast was the soft blue gabardine suit of the bridesmaid, Miss Margaret Duncan. She wore a matching blue halo hat and carried a nosegay of pink roses and gladioli.

Mr. Andrew Morrison was groomsman. Musical selections rendered by Mrs. Ruth were "Because" and "O Promise Me".

A reception followed at the home of the groom's mother, where the bride's table was decorated with pink and white streamers, tall white candles and a tiered wedding cake. The bride's mother was attired in pearl grey silk jersey, cerise accessories and corsage of pink roses, and the groom's mother wore black and white crepe, white accessories and corsage of red roses. Guests were present from Grimsby, Peterborough and Detroit, as well as Brantford.

Following a honeymoon in Bala Bay, Muskoka, the couple will reside at 153 Chatham Street. For travelling the bride added green accessories and corsage of American Beauty roses to her white suit.
