Full Text

The wedding of Kathryn Elizabeth, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Melbourne Emsley, and Mr. Clifford Cook, son of Mr. and Mrs. Walter Cook, of Huntsville, took place on April 23, in St. Joseph's Church, Grimsby. The Rev. W.J. Murphy conducted the ceremony. Bouquets of lilies and snapdragons decorated the altar, and Mrs. John Vooges played the wedding music and sang, accompanied by Mr. John Vooges.

Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore a white satin gown edged with lace forming a circular train. A tiara headdress held her full-length veil in place and she carried red roses. The bride's sister, Mrs. Helen Godin, was matron of honour, dressed in blue taffeta, and carrying pink carnations, while the bridesmaids, all sisters of the bride, Mrs. Roy Godden, Mrs. Walter Bentley and Miss Evelyn Emsley, wore yellow, pink and rose taffeta, respectively, and flowered headbands matching their bouquets of carnations. The flower girls, cousins of the bride, were twin sisters - Constance and Maureen Weicker, dressed in peach taffeta with flowered headdresses and carrying baskets of red roses. The groomsman was Mr. Jim Godden and the ushers, Messrs. Walter Bentley, Roy Godden and Mr. Maurice Weicker.

Following a reception at the bride's home, the couple left for a trip to the United States, the former wearing a grey gabardine suit and navy accessories.
