One of the prettiest weddings of the season was solemnized at Maplehurst, the beautiful home of Mr. and Mrs. C. Ernest Woolverton, on Saturday, July 18, 1925, when their eldest daughter, Frances Theron, was married to Mr. Francis Hugh Liddle, second son of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Liddle, Grimsby. The ceremony was conducted on the lawn in an arbor of trees, Rev. T.E. Richards officiating. The wedding march was played by Miss Edna Smith. The bride was very pretty in white satin with full skirt of lace and Limerick lace veil, which formed the train, being caught with bow knots of orange blossoms. She carried a shower bouquet of roses and valley lilies.

Miss Verna Jarvis, in mauve with large mauve hat, was charming as maid of honor, and Miss Isabelle Woolverton, in peach, and Miss Adelene Woolverton, in apple green dresses, were dainty bridesmaids. Mr. Charles I. Burland attended the groom.

After signing the register, Mr. and Mrs. Woolverton held a reception at the east of the house, and there also the happy young bride and groom received the congratulations of their friends. The bride and groom left later by motor for Muskoka, the bride traveling in a brown crepe ensemble suit with hat to match and brown fox fur, the gift of the groom.

The groom's gift to the maid of honor and bridesmaids were a silver mesh bag and vanity cases; to the organist, gold pencil, and to the best man a gold-mounted key case. Mrs. Woolverton wore a French gown of blue, trimmed with blue lace, and a large black hat. Mrs. Liddle was in peach color, with hat to match. The out of town guests included Mr. and Mrs. B. Loniver (Toronto), Mrs. J.B. Clark (Toronto), Dr. and Mrs. Clarke (Brighton), Mr. and Mrs. Harry F. Burkholder, Mr. and Mrs. Piper, Mr. and Miss Boyd, Mr. Malone (Hamilton), Rev. John H. Gibson (York). Miss Boyd caught the bride's bouquet when it was thrown from the balcony. Mr. and Mrs. Liddle will reside, for the rest of the summer, at Jordan Harbor.
