The Reverend Arthur Organ conducted the wedding in Ryerson United Church, Hamilton, of Laura Louise, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George A. Barnard, Sunnyside, Washington, formerly of Hamilton, and Robert James Morris, son of Mr. and Mrs. James E. Morris, R.R. 4, Hamilton, on Saturday evening, May 26th, at 7 o'clock.

Given away by her uncle, Mr. Andrew D. Althouse, of Royal Oak, Michigan, the bride was gowned in ice blue taffeta in princess style with marching bolero of imported French lace. Her matching headdress held a scalloped illusion net veil in place and she carried butterfly roses and lily of the valley.

As matron of honour, Mrs. John Pyper wore a pale yellow taffeta gown with matching bolero and her headdress was trimmed with flowers matching her nosegay of yellow roses and mauve sweet peas. The little flower girl, Katharine Keenleyside, was dressed in white embroidered organdy with matching bonnet, and carried a basket of spring flowers.

Mr. Fairbairn Falconer, of Toronto, was best man. Ushers were Messrs. John D. Pyper and John Calder (Glanford Station). Mr. Norman Pyper was soloist for the occasion.

A reception followed at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Gordon Bidwell. Mrs. Barnard, the bride's mother, received in an aqua crepe costume with white accessories and corsage of gardenias and butterfly roses. Mrs. Morris, the groom's mother, was in shady nook crepe with mauve accessories, and her flowers were talisman roses and mauve sweet peas.

The couple left for a wedding trip to Northern Ontario, the bride wearing a navy blue wool suit and white Milan straw hat. Her corsage was of white gardenias. The couple will reside at 224 Gordon St., Guelph.

The bride is a granddaughter of the late John A. and Mrs. Althouse, Ridge Road, North Grimsby.
