Trinity United Church, Grimsby, was the scene of the wedding on Saturday, July 1, 1950, when Rose Matilda, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Ziegler, Grimsby, became the bride of Orval Arthur Etherington, son of Mr. and Mrs. Gordon Etherington, Grimsby. The Rev. R.K. Lemkay officiated.
Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore a gown of white satin, fashioned with a fitted bodice having a net yoke outlined with satin, and an old-fashioned hoop skirt. Her veil, held in place by a halo of lace and lilies-of-the-valley, fell into a long train. She carried Better Times roses and fleurs d'amour. Miss Frances Ziegler, sister of the bride, as maid of honour, wore blue taffeta with matching picture hat and carried pink delphiniums.
The bridesmaids, Miss Betty Furler and Miss Yolanda Simon, were in pink, their flowers being blue larkspur.
Mr. Earl Etherington was his brother's best man and Messrs. Stuart Faul and Fred Harvey ushered. Mr. R.W. Mitchell played the wedding music and Miss Gloria Jarvis sang.
A reception was held at The Pines. The bride's mother received in a navy blue and white costume, with corsage of pink roses. The groom's mother was in marine blue sheer with white accessories and corsage of red roses.
The couple left for a honeymoon trip to Northern Ontario and the United States, the bride wearing a printed sheer frock with white accessories and a corsage of white carnations.
Mr. and Mrs. Etherington will reside at 11 Robinson Street, Grimsby.
