Full Text

On Saturday, June 25th, Helen June Gledhill, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Gledhill, John St., Grimsby, became the bride of Allan Ernest Poole, of Beamsville, son of Mr. and Mrs. William Poole. The ceremony took place in St. Andrew's Church, Grimsby, with the rector, Rev. E.A.Brooks, officiating. The bride's father gave her in marriage.

Two cousins of the bride, Joyce Dalgleish and Joan Helliwell, performed the duties of bridesmaids, while Miss Dorothy Gledhill, sister of the bride, was maid of honour. The groomsman was Morris Pettit, and the ushers were William Gledhill and Franklin Poole.

The bride's gown was of white satin with lace yoke and slight train. A sweetheart headdress held her floor length veil in place, and her bouquet consisted of red roses, white bouvardia and ivy.

The maid of honour wore mauve moire taffeta, while the bridesmaids made a very pretty picture in yellow moire taffeta with matching headdresses and bouquets of delphinium and roses.

Guests to the number of 55 attended the reception in the Oak Room of the Village Inn, coming from Toronto, Dunnville, Markham, Hamilton, Beamsville, St. Catharines and Grimsby. The bride's mother wore for the occasion a becoming gown of navy sheer with corsage of pink roses. The groom's mother chose a pretty blue gown and she also wore pink roses.

Mr. Bertram Webster played the wedding music and Mrs. A. Helliwell of Toronto, aunt of the bride, was the soloist.

The bride's going away costume was of white figured jersey with white accessories.

Mr. and Mrs. Poole will make their home in Grimsby.
