Rock Chapel, Ridge Road, was the scene of a pretty wedding on Saturday afternoon, January 7, when Dorothy Irene, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W.L. Vickers, Grimsby, became the bride of Mr. Ray Muir Moffatt, son of Mr. and Mrs. Lorris Moffat, of Grassie. The ceremony was conducted by the minister, Rev. W.K. Houselander, of Ker-Tapleytown Circuit.

The bride, given in marriage by her father, was gowned in lace encrusted white satin, with fingertip veil. She carried Talisman roses and wore the pearls which had been worn by her mother at the latter's wedding.

The maid of honour, Miss Faye McLeod, wore a pink floor length gown and carried white 'mums. Misses Marilyn Hilberg and LaVerda Moffatt, as bridesmaids, wore floor length gowns in mauve, and carried bouquets of gold 'mums.

The duties of the groomsman were undertaken by Mr. Willis Moffatt, brother of the groom, and the ushers were Mr. Ronald Vickers, brother of the bride, and Mr. Murray Donovan, of Ancaster. The wedding music was played by Mrs. Edna Carlton and Miss Kay Wylie sang. S. Jeffries decorated the church with roses for the occasion.

Following the ceremony, a reception was held at The Pines Hotel, Stoney Creek, with over 50 guests present from London, Niagara Falls, N.Y., Toronto, Aldershot, Mount Hope, Grassie, Stoney Creek, Tweedside and Hamilton.

The bride's mother received in a gown of brown crepe with brown accessories and yellow rose corsage, assisted by the groom's mother wearing grey crepe with black accessories and corsage of red carnations.

For the wedding trip to Niagara Falls, N.Y., and Buffalo, the bride travelled in a beige gabardine suit with wine topcoat and black accessories, completed with a corsage of roses. On their return Mr. and Mrs. Moffatt will reside in Mount Hope.
