A wedding of wide interest in the Niagara district took place at noon on Saturday, Sept. 3rd, at Kenilworth United Church, Hamilton, when the Rev. R.S. McMillan solemnized the marriage of Miss Ann Virginia Walker, daughter of Mrs. Walker and the late Kenneth A. Walker, of Fonthill, and Paul Kozlik of Welland, son of Mr. and Mrs. Anton Kozlik of Port Arthur. Mrs. G.L. Royal, of Toronto, formerly Miss Audrey Wilson, Welland, was the soloist.
Given in marriage by her grandfather, Norman M. Walker, of Hamilton, the bride was lovely in an ankle length gown of forget-me-not blue corded taffeta, with scalloped reveres at the neckline and long tight sleeves. The skirt was fashioned with four inverted unpressed pleats at the back. She wore a tiny halo of matching taffeta flowers with small circular blue shoulder length veil, and carried a sheaf of roses.
Mrs. G.M. Townsend, of Hamilton, was the only attendant and Mr. Townsend acted as best man. A frock of cinnamon brown faille crepe was worn by Mrs. Townsend with front sheering and the new fashioned loose panels at the back. Her matching hat was beige with brown feather trim and she had a colonial bouquet of yellow roses.
For the reception and luncheon for the immediate family and a few friends which followed at Lookout Inn, Hamilton, the reception room was decorated with rose, pink and white gladioli. Mrs. Walker, mother of the bride, was smartly gowned in an ankle length dress of navy blue taffeta with matching navy felt hat with red quill and matching accessories and corsage of cream roses. Receiving with her was Mrs. Kozlik, mother of the groom, who wore a gown of navy crepe with black hat and corsage of red roses.
Later Mr. and Mrs. Kozlik left for a motor trip to New York City and Washington, the bride travelling in a blue two-piece suit, with navy blue hat, navy accessories and corsage of cream roses.
Upon their return they will take up residence at their new home, Norway Avenue, Welland.
