In Trinity United Church, Grimsby, on Saturday at 3:30 o'clock, the wedding was solemnized when Betty Irene, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James Fisher, Oak Street, Grimsby, became the bride of Petty Officer Philip Steele, R.C.N.V.R., son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Steele, Deep Cove, British Columbia. Rev. W.J. Watt officiated.

Wearing a graceful gown of white silk marquisette, fashioned with a long full skirt ending in a train, the bride was given away by her father. Her headdress held a long veil in place, and she carried a white Bible adorned with pink roses and streamers.

The bridesmaids were Miss Bernice Honey and Miss Beverly Woodcock. The former wore turquoise blue taffeta and the latter yellow net over silk jersey, both having heart-shaped headdresses and short veils. Their nosegays were of roses and freezia.

Petty Officer Robert Taylor was best man. Mr. Waldo Nutting, Hamilton, and Mr. William Fisher, Grimsby, ushered the guests.

Ferns and palms formed the church decorations. Mr. T.L. Dymond played the wedding music and accompanied Mr. Harold Jarvis, who sang All Joy Be Thine and Still as the Night.

A reception for 35 guests was held afterward at the Village Inn, when the bride's mother received attired in a mauve sheer frock, with black accessories and a corsage bouquet of rosebuds.

The couple left on a trip to Vancouver, B.C., the bride going away in a yellow silk jersey dress, harmonizing coat, with brown accessories.

The bride will reside with her parents, while the groom returns to his naval duties.
