Full Text

A pretty wedding took place on Wednesday, July 8, at Grimsby Beach, when Florence, only daughter of James and the late Mrs. Marlowe, was united in marriage to Earl R. Swift, son of William and Mrs. Swift, B.Sc., Burlington. The bride looked charming in ivory crepe de chine, with tulle veil and wreath of orange blossoms. She carried a bouquet of Ophelia roses and lilies of the valley. The bride entered the drawing room with her father, and was attended by little Francis Ward and Francis Kemp as ribbon bearers, they being dressed in fluffy white dresses carrying baskets of sweetheart roses and baby's breath. Harold Kemp played the wedding march, and Miss Vera Brownlee sang while the register was being signed.

After the wedding a reception was held. Mrs. William Dunn, aunt of the bride, received with the bride's father. Mrs. Dunn wore a black lace gown and hat to match. Mrs. Swift, mother of the groom, wore black crepe de chine dress and mauve hat.

The happy couple left on the evening train for Muskoka and Upper Lakes. The bride's travelling dress was of grey crepe meteor tailleur, mauve hat and grey shoes.

Out of town guests were from Oakville, Toronto, Port Rowan, Hamilton, Fonthill, Hagersville, Stratford and Burlington.
