Full Text

The marriage of Norma Eleanor, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Alfred M. Johnston, of Pontypool, to Mr John Knox McLeod, son of Rev. J.P and Mrs. McLeod of Grimsby, took place in Manvers United Church, Toronto, with the groom's father officiating. Rev. Clare Kellogg was at the organ and Miss Ruth Hiscock was soloist.

Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore a strapless gown of satin with net overskirt, her long-sleeved lace jacket finished with a stand-up collar and buttoned front. Her veil of embroidered net was an heirloom sent especially from England for the occasion, and she carried a cascade of red roses.

Miss Frances Johnston, wearing blue faille taffeta with net overskirt, was maid of honour for her sister; Miss Marilyn Cavans chose pink, and Miss Dorothy McLeod, yellow taffeta. Their nosegays of sweet peas were tied with rainbow ribbon.

Mr. Harold McCallum of Grimsby was groomsman and the ushers were Mr. Ronald Pomeroy of Bethany and Mr. Allan Johnston.

A reception followed at the home of the bride's parents. The couple will live in Hamilton.
