Full Text

In Trinity United Church on Saturday, June 28th, the Rev'd W.J. Watt officiated at the marriage of Alice, younger daughter of Mr. and Mrs. M. Alva Cramer, of Grimsby, and Howard Andrew, son of Mrs. Clausen and the late Mr. Emil Clausen, of Ancaster Township.

The church was decorated with peonies and syringa with ferns, pink and white candles being used.

Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore a white nylon satin gown, made with form-fitting bodice having a sweetheart neckline, and long sleeves ending in points on the hands. The skirt was full and formed a short train. Her finger-tip veil of French net was draped from a headdress of Honiton Lace, which had been worn by her grandmother. Her bouquet was red roses and white camellias.

Miss Kathleen Yeager, cousin of the bride, was bridesmaid. She wore a floor-length dress of white corded taffeta with short puff sleeves and round neckline. Her long gloves were of pink net, and she carried a bouquet of pink roses and sweet peas, with bandeau of matching flowers.

Mr. Robert Clausen, brother of the groom, was the best man, and Mr. David Moore, of Hamilton, the groom's cousin, and Mr. John Bruce, of Fort Erie, cousin of the bride, served as ushers.

Mr. John Ansell sang "Still as the Night" and "Ill Walk Beside You", with Miss Annella Current accompanying at the organ.

A reception was held at the Village Inn, the guests afterwards going on to the home of the bride's parents.

Out of town guests from Burlington, Brantford, Fort Erie, Ancaster, Toronto and Hamilton attended the ceremony and reception.

The young couple left for a motor trip in Eastern Ontario, the bride wearing a grey-blue dress of figured marquisette and a blue summer felt hat with French flowers and carrying a grey summer coat, with white accessories. Her corsage was sweet peas.

Their future home is near Mount Hope, in Ancaster Township.
