In All Saints' Anglican Church, on October 4, the nuptial ceremony took place uniting in marriage Edith Winnifred, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Roberts, and Mr. Ronald Earl Johnson, son of Mr. and Mrs. David Johnson, Grimsby, the Rev. Canon H.A. Leake officiating. Mr. Roberts gave his daughter away, and she was attended by her twin sister, Mrs. Roy Freckleton.

White satin fashioned the bridal gown, which had inserts of lace in the full skirt extending into a train. Her sweetheart headdress adorned with pearls held her long veil in place, and she carried red roses and stephanotis. A yellow taffeta gown was worn by the bride's sister. There was also a little flower girl, Miss Catharine Martin, who was dressed in powder blue voile. Both carried Talisman roses, matching bands of the same flowers forming their headdresses.

Mr. Ross Johnson, Grimsby, was best man, and the ushers were Mr. Paul Worsley, Toronto, and Mr. Jack Hirons, Barrie. Mr. Harold Jerome played the wedding music with Mr. Malcolm Clarke as soloist.

Eighty guests attended the reception at The Pines. Gowned in black sheer,with corsage of American Beauty roses, the bride's mother received the guests, and the groom's mother assisting, was in grey crepe with American Beauty roses.

Motoring to Montreal and Ottawa, the bride went away in a winter blue suit, her hat and gloves being black and her shortie coat of grey shade. They will reside in Hamilton.
