Full Text

A quiet wedding was solemnized on Monday morning, October 4th, in 10:45, in St. Andrew's Church, Grimsby, when Mavis Ethel, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Francis Coleman, of Coventry, England, became the bride of Robert "Bob" Moore Merritt, son of Mr. and Mrs. Roland L. Merritt, Robinson Street South.

The Rector Rev. E.A. Brooks officiated.

The bride, given in marriage by the groom's grandfather, Mr. J.O. Moore, was gowned in white slipper satin with sweetheart neckline and long embroidered veil. Her flowers were red Better Times roses and stephanotis.

Miss Jean Coleman, the bride's sister and attendant, wore a becoming frock of pink silk, and carried gladioli to tone. The groom was attended by his brother-in-law, Mr. Ernest Crossland, Markham, Ont.

Following the reception held at the home of the groom's grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. J.O. Moore, 12 St. Andrew's Avenue, Mr. and Mrs. Merritt left on a wedding trip to the Haliburton district, the bride wearing a fawn dress with brown coat and accessories, and corsage of red gladioli.

The young couple will reside in Toronto.

The bride's mother and sister who came to Canada to attend the wedding left immediately afterwards for New York, whence they sailed for England aboard the Queen Elizabeth.
