St. Alban's Church, Beamsville, was the scene of an interesting wedding at 3:30 o'clock Saturday afternoon when Sub.-Lt. Janet Mary Osborne W.R.C.N.S., daughter of Mr. and Mrs. E.B. Osborne of Beamsville, became the bride of Lt. Roderick Darrell Hayes, R.C.N.V.R., son of Mr. and Mrs. W.H. Hayes of St. John, N.B. The rector, Rev. E.F. Maunsell, officiated, and Mr. Jos. Richardson of McMaster University, Hamilton, was the soloist.

Lilacs decorated the pretty little church and clusters of lilacs and white ribbon marked the guest pews.

Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore a gown of white satin-striped moire, made with fitted bodice buttoning down the front from the high sweetheart neck, and a gathered skirt which swept into a long train.

A coronet of seed pearls held her hip-length veil of illusion and she carried a white bouquet of roses and lily-of-the-valley. Her only attendant was her younger sister, Miss Elizabeth Osborne, who wore a floor length frock of lilac net, a circlet of matching flowers and velvet ribbon in her hair and carried a nosegay of pansies and roses.

Lt. Hugh Anderson of Toronto was the groomsman and the ushers were Cpl. William Grierson, Toronto, and Mr. James Beattie, Vineland. Soft organ music was played throughout the ceremony which was followed by a reception at The Cottage, the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Osborne. Mrs. Osborne wore a taupe costume with small flowered hat and Mrs. Hayes chose a navy ensemble.

For going away the bride changed to a dusty blue tweed suit with hat and accessories en suite. Following their wedding trip, the bride and groom will return to their duties in St. John, N.B.
