The bride, given in marriage by her father, was gowned in white slipper satin with sweetheart neckline, long sleeves pointed over the hands, full skirt extending into a long train, fingertip veil held in place by an orange blossom headdress. She carried a cascade bouquet of gardenias, lily of the valley and rosebuds.

Mrs. Charles Billings, matron of honour, a cousin of the bride, wore peach taffeta with matching headdress, and blue carnations. The bridesmaids, Mrs. Harold Wood, sister-in-law of the bride, and Mrs. Ronald White, aunt of the groom, were gowned alike in blue taffeta. They carried yellow carnations.

The groom's attendant was his brother, Harold Schott, and the ushers were Harold Wood, brother of the bride, and Daniel Quill, both of Hamilton.
