Yellow poms and burnished oak leaves formed the decorations in the Maisonneuve Presbyterian Church on October 8th, at the marriage of Miss Marion Cumming Wedderburn, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Wedderburn, of Montreal, to Mr. Charles Stuart Ramsay, youngest son of Lieut.-Colonel K.A. Ramsay, O.B.E.D.S.O., and Mrs. Ramsay, of Grimsby, Ontario.

The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, wore a gown of white bridal satin fashioned on simple lines, the fitted bodice having a tiny turned down collar, the sleeves ending in points over the hands and the full skirt falling into a short train. Her fingertip veil of tulle illusion was held in place by a bandeau of orange blossoms. She carried a semi-cascade bouquet of white roses and bouvardia.

Miss Helen MacArthur, as her only attendant, was wearing a frock of autumn yellow, also having a fitted bodice and full skirt. She wore matching hat and mittens and carried a semi-cascade bouquet of Talisman roses.

Mr. Douglas McAllister acted as best man for the groom with Mr. Gordon Ramsay, the bridegroom's brother, and Mr. Ernest Hall as ushers. Mrs. Allan Smith sang "Because" during the signing of the register.

A reception was held later in the La Salle Hotel. Following a wedding trip the couple took up residence in Montreal. Out-of-town guests included the bridegroom's mother, Mrs. K.A. Ramsay, of Grimsby, Mr. and Mrs. K.A.J. Ramsay of Hamilton, and Mr. Gordon Ramsay of Grimsby. Colonel Ramsay was unable to attend due to illness.
