On July 3, in Trinity Baptist Church, Hamilton, at 5 o'clock in the afternoon, the wedding was solemnized of Hazel Joy, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Hume, Grimsby Beach, and Mr. Edward H. Becktel, son of Mr. and Mrs. E.S. Becktel, Hamilton. The Rev. Dr. O.D. Priddle conducted the ceremony.
Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore an ivory corded taffeta gown with off-the-shoulder neckline and short train, her matching net veil caught to her head with gardenias. She carried gardenias, roses and lilies-of-the-valley.
Only bridal attendant, Miss Margaret Hunter, was gowned in blue lace with a fuchsia-toned bustle, and her flowers were roses and delphinium. Mr. Harry Rouse, Bartonville, was groomsman, while ushers were Messrs. Howard Blythe and Lloyd Jamieson. Mr. Robert Becktel, brother of the groom, and Miss Mimi Johnston sang The Lord's Prayer and Because.
A reception for 40 guests were held at the Village Inn, Grimsby, the bride's mother receiving in an ice blue frock with white accessories and a corsage bouquet of white carnations. Assisting, the groom's mother wore French blue with touches of navy, and a pink carnation corsage.
Leaving for a wedding trip to New York City, the bride went away in a smart corded silk bengaline suit in forest green, with French flowered hat trimmed with sea-green ribbon, and black accessories. The couple will reside at Grimsby Beach.
