Full Text

A very pretty wedding took place on Saturday afternoon, August 20, at Trinity United Church when Roberta Elizabeth, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. L.H. Haynes, Vineland, became the bride of Howard Reginald Duffield, of Grimsby. Rev. A.L. Griffith officiated at the ceremony.

The bride, given in marriage by her father, was gowned in white organza with shoulder length veil and carried red carnations and roses. She also wore the groom's gift, a strand of pearls.

The best man was Guy Winters, and the bridesmaid, wearing a pretty blue taffeta frock, was the bride's sister, Miss Joan Haynes. The flower girl, Heather Winters, wore a long pink taffeta gown with bonnet to match and carried a nosegay of mixed flowers.

Following the ceremony the bride and groom were met at the church by a detachment of Peach Kings, escorted to a float decorated with Peach Kings colours, and paraded through the town, before proceeding to the home of the bride's parents at Vineland for the reception.

The bride's mother wore light blue crepe with matching hat and rose corsage. She was assisted in receiving by the groom's sister, Mrs. Lyle Luey, wearing a grey ensemble with yellow rose corsage.

On their return from a wedding trip to Kirkland Lake and other Northern Ontario points, Mr. and Mrs. Duffield will reside in Grimsby.
