Full Text

On Saturday afternoon, August 26th, at 3 o'clock, Phyllis Riddell Taylor, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Geoffrey Taylor, of Cobourg, became the bride of Clarence Edward McNinch, son of Mr. and Mrs. Clarence McNinch, Grimsby.

The scene of the event was the beautiful grounds of Locust Lawn Farm, home of the bride's parents, with Rev. W.P. Woodger, D.D., officiating. The day was ideal for an outdoor wedding. The bride's father gave her in marriage, the young couple standing in a flower-decked grotto of evergreens for the ceremony.

The bride was gowned in white satin with bodice of Chantilly lace. Insets of lace extended down the skirt which was completed with a full train. Her finger-tip veil was held in place by a coronet of pearls. Lace mitts gave a pretty touch to the ensemble, and the bridal bouquet was of red roses.

Mrs. Jean Greer, the bride's cousin and only attendant, was becomingly gowned in shell pink taffeta with net yoke. She wore a large white picture hat and carried pink roses.

The groom was attended by Mr. Ian Stevenson. O.A.C., Guelph, and the ushers were Mr. Wm. Fisher, Oak Street, Grimsby, and Mr. Herbert Pettiepierre. O.A.C.

The bride's mother received in black-flowered sheer, with pink accessories and corsage of pink roses, assisted by the groom's mother in powder blue with navy accessories and corsage of pink carnations, and Mrs. Harold Taylor, aunt of the bride.

The young couple left by motor for a trip through Muskoka and Temagami, returning by way of Ottawa. For going away the bride was wearing a suit of navy gabardine with white accessories and corsage of Sweetheart roses.

Mr. and Mrs. McNinch will make their home in Guelph.

Guests were present from Milton, Buffalo, Toronto, Richmond Hill, Mount Forest, Guelph, Grimsby and Grimsby Beach. Coming from a distance were Miss Doris Taylor. R.N., Regina, Sask., and Mr. and Mrs. Macklin Hancock, from Harvard University, Cambridge, Mass.
