The fine old home of Mrs. Makepeace, Grimsby, was the scene on Saturday, Sept. 27th, of a pretty wedding when her granddaughter, Doris Geneveive, daughter of W.B. Woolverton and Mary Makepeace, became the bride of Harry Campbell, son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Campbell of Mitchell.

The Rev. J. Allan Ballard officiated.

The bride, who was given away by her uncle, Mr. Harold Woolverton, was beautifully gowned in white satin with shadow lace, ornamented with seed pearls, and wore a coronet of orange blossoms. She carried a lovely bouquet of pink roses.

Miss Katherine Geddes was bridesmaid. Her dress was a lovely orchid georgette, trimmed with bands of purple velvet. Mr. Leon Smith was best man.

The house was artistically decorated with ferns, smilax, pink roses and Belgian daisies, grown on Mr. Wouters' Estate.

The ceremony took place in the ball room, just where a number of years ago her mother had been married. The wedding march was played by Miss Helen Campbell, sister of the groom.

A buffet luncheon was served to about 50 relatives and friends of the bride and groom.

The bride's health was proposed by Rev. J. Allan Ballard and responded to by the groom, and the bridesmaid's toast proposed by Mr. Hamilton Fleming and responded to by Mr. Leon Smith, the groomsman.

The bride wore a going away dress of beige crepe de chine embroidered in colors with a small embroidered hat to match. Her coat was a handsome dark grey duvetyn trimmed with grey squirrel.

Mr. and Mrs. Campbell left amid showers of good wishes and confetti for a motor trip through northern Ontario.
