On Saturday, September 4th, at 3:30 o'clock, the marriage was solemnized of Donald M. Martin, son of Mr. and Mrs. M. Martin of Grimsby, and Alice Lillian Robinson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. H. Robinson, Grimsby Beach.

The ceremony was held in the Boys' Tabernacle, Grimsby Beach, with Rev. A. McGowan, of Toronto, officiating. The groomsman was Grant DeMille, of Grimsby, and the usher was George Robinson, brother of the bride. Attending the bride were Mrs. Leslie Robinson, sister-in-law, as matron of honour, and Miss Marion Honey, of Grimsby, as bridesmaid.

The bride, given in marriage by her father, wore a long white gown of French embroidery, set with pearls on net yoke and large lover's knot on the skirt front. A long silk veil with beaded headdress completed the costume, and she carried red roses.

The matron of honor's gown was blue sheer, net yoke, and three-quarter length sleeves. She wore a matching headdress, and carried cerise roses and glads. Pink sheer was worn by the bridesmaid and her flowers were pink glads. The flower girl, Donna Lee Carter, of Brantford, wore a long white dress of the same material as the bride's with a ribbon headdress. She carried an old fashioned nosegay.

Sixty guests attended the wedding reception held at the home of the bride's brother, Mr. George Robinson. The bride's table was decorated with tall candles and gladioli, centred with a three-tier cake on pillars. The room was beautifully decorated with pink and white streamers. The bride's mother wore a gown of emerald green with black accessories, while the groom's mother was becomingly gowned in rose gabardine.

The church was prettily decorated with tall baskets of mixed glads for the wedding. Mrs. S. Gardham played the wedding music and Don Gardham sang.

The bride and groom left on a wedding trip to Windsor and Detroit, the bride wearing a grey tweed suit, with navy blue shoes, hat and purse. On their return they will reside in Grimsby.
