Rev. Norman Rawson officiated at the wedding, at 5:30 o'clock, on Saturday, September 6, in Centenary United Church, when Caroline, daughter of Mrs. Howard Stirling, Hamilton, and the late Mr. H.L. Gibson, Grimsby, became the bride of Mr. William Henry Baker, son of Mr. and Mrs. E.C. Baker, Dundas.

The bride, given in marriage by her brother, Mr. Walter Gibson, Grimsby, wore a princess style gown of white satin with lace inserts, fashioned with sweetheart neckline. Her long veil of embroidered tulle was held in place by a white satin halo adorned with orange blossoms, and her bouquet was of white gladioli and red roses against a background of white plumes and satin streamers. Miss Norma Gibson, maid of honour, was gowned in pale blue embroidered organza with flowered halo, and carried a bouquet of yellow roses. Her other attendants were: Mrs. Mae Gibson, in blue flowered embroidered organza; Miss Mary Hildreth and Miss Marion Allen, both wearing pink organza, all having matching halos and carrying pastel gladioli and roses. Little Linda Quinn, Toronto, as flower girl, was dressed in white organdy with pink and blue headdress, and in her bouquet were flowers of the same shades.

The best man was Mr. F.A. Baker, brother of the groom, while those ushering were: Mr. E.A. Baker, Jr., Mr. James Sayers and Mr. Augustus Marshall.

The church decorations were white and pastel gladioli. Miss Helen Hunter sang, accompanied by Mrs. Roy Pearce, at the organ.

A reception was held for 65 guests at George's Dining Room, Barton Street, the bride's mother receiving in flowered jersey with corsage of white gladioli, while the groom's mother, assisting, wore a black and turquoise frock, with pink gladioli and roses in her corsage.

For the wedding trip, the couple left by motor for points north, the bride travelling in a pale blue jersey ensemble with beige shortie coat, blue felt hat and brown accessories. Her flowers were pink roses. They will reside in Hamilton.
