Of wide interest was the marriage on Saturday afternoon, September 23rd, at 3 o'clock, of Doris Elizabeth, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. L.A. Bromley, to Leonard Stewart Meeres, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ray Meeres, of Red Deer, Alberta. The ceremony took place in Trinity United Church, Grimsby, with Rev. R.K. Lemkay officiating.
Given in marriage by her father, the bride was daintily gowned in ivory slipper satin with basque bodice and long fitted sleeves, the long full skirt extending into a graceful train. A finger-tip veil of illusion net and lace was worn, and a crescent bouquet of Pinnochio roses and Amazon lilies completed the picture.
The bride's sister, Miss Barbara Bromley, as maid of honour, wore autumn green satin with matching headdress. Her flowers were Sphinx carnations and gold leaves. Her duties were shared by Mrs. Edgar Wheaton as bridesmaid, wearing old rose satin with matching headdress, and carrying a crescent bouquet of Sarah Knipe carnations and dahlias, with gold leaves.
Havelock Jewson, Grimsby Beach, was groomsman, and Donald Mogg and Peter Bromley, brother of the bride, served as ushers.
As the beginning of the service, Mrs. C.M. Gladwin, of Hamilton, Bermuda, aunt of the bride, sang The Lord's Prayer, and again, as the signing of the register, sang "O Perfect Love".
Fifty guests were present at the reception held at the home of the bride's parents, which was beautifully decorated with Picardy gladioli and wine-coloured dahlias. The bride's mother received in a becoming gown of champagne crepe and lace with matching accessories and corsage of Talisman roses. Assisting was Mrs. Donald Thomson, of Ottawa, aunt of the groom, wearing navy blue crepe with pink rosebud corsage.
Among the out of town guests were Mrs. D.Thomson, Ottawa; Mrs. C.M. Gladwin, Hamilton, Bermuda; Mr. and Mrs. W.D. Jackson, London, and Mr. and Mrs. W.V.Bromley, Brantford.
On their return from the wedding trip to Northern Ontario, Mr. and Mrs. Meeres will make their home in Toronto.
