Yesterday afternoon, at 2 o'clock in St. Andrew's Church, the marriage was solemnized of Marion Gertrude, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Smith, and Dennis Robert Heywood, son of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Heywood, of Hamilton. The rector, Rev. E.A. Brooks, officiated.

The bride, given in marriage by her father, wore a white brocaded satin gown with three-quarter length veil and headdress of orange blossoms. She carried red roses. Her maid of honour, Miss June Gledhill, wore a frock of pink sheer with matching headdress. The gowns of the two bridesmaids, Misses Marguerite Heywood and Dorothy Hatley, were of blue brocaded satin. All three carried pink roses.

The groom was attended by Mr. Thomas Hawe, of Hagersville, and the ushers were Murray Nelson and Roy Heywood.

Mr. Bertram Webster presided at the organ, with Mrs. Leslie Luey as soloist.

Following the ceremony a reception was held at The Pines for the many guests who attended from Port Colborne, Niagara Falls, Hamilton, Queenston and Grimsby. The bride's mother received in a gown of navy crepe with sequin trim, and the groom's mother in black crepe with black accessories, while both wore rose corsages.

The young couple are spending their honeymoon in Ogdensburg, N.Y., the bride travelling in a brown tailored suit with brown accessories and a matching corsage of roses. They will make their future home in Grimsby.
