Full Text

A quiet but pretty wedding was solemnized at the United Church parsonage at Grimsby on Saturday, July 29, by Rev. R.K. Lemkay, when Eleanor Ethel Birch, daughter of Mrs. Edward McConnell of British Columbia, and the late Mr. Birch of St. Catharines, became the bride of Mr. John Harry Lampman, son of Mr. and Mrs. Gilbert Lampman, R.R. 1, Caistor Centre.

The bride was charmingly attired in a street length frock of sky blue nylon fashioned with fitted bodice, puff sleeves, panel waistline and full gathered skirt. Her long mittens were of sky blue net and her shoulder length veil was held in place by a matching straw brim headdress and she wore a corsage of red baby roses.

Her bridesmaid, Miss Marjorie Trask, was similarly attired in a pink nylon frock with matching accessories and corsage of pink baby roses. Mr. Clarence Bentley was groomsman.

Immediately following the ceremony a reception for 50 relatives and friends was held at the Winona Hall. Table decorations were carried out in pink, white and blue with mixed summer flowers, flanked by tall white tapers. The bride's table was centred with a tastefully decorated three-tier wedding cake topped with a miniature bouquet of blue flowers.

Receiving with the bridal party were the groom's parents, the groom's mother being attired in a street length frock of flowered navy crepe and white accessories with pink trim and corsage of pink baby roses.

The happy couple left for a honeymoon trip to points north, the bride travelling in a summer blue suit with white accessories and corsage of red baby roses.

They will reside at Grimsby.
