The Rev. W.J. Preston officiated at the wedding in First United Church, Hamilton, on Saturday, August 12th, of Norma Florence Gibson, youngest daughter of Mrs. Howard Stirling, of Hamilton, and the late Mr. H.L. Gibson, of Grimsby, to Joseph Squire Matthews, son of Mrs. Wilfred Belton and the late Mr. Joseph Matthews.

The bride was given in marriage by her brother, Mr. Walter Gibson, of Grimsby. She wore a princess-style gown of white satin and lace, her veil of embroidered tulle held in place by a satin and orange blossom headdress, and her bouquet was of white gladioli and red roses.

Mrs. William Baker, as matron of honour for her sister, was costumed in mauve taffeta, with yellow carnations.

Her other attendants were Mrs. Mae Gibson, of Grimsby, and Miss Dorothy Davison, Hamilton, the former in green taffeta, and the latter in yellow, and they carried pastel carnations.

The best man was Mr. William Matthews, brother of the groom, while ushers were Messrs. William Baker and Edward Tomlinson. Mr. Wilfred Reed sang and Mr. Harry Allen was at the organ.

A reception was held at Robert's Restaurant for 65 guests. The bride's mother received in a navy blue and white ensemble and corsage of pink roses. The groom's mother wore white with a corsage of red roses.

Leaving for a wedding trip East, the bride went away dressed in navy blue with corsage of pink carnations. They will live in Hamilton.
