Palms and peonies formed the background for the wedding June 16th of Ruth Nancy, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. V. Topp, of Beamsville, to Mr. Bruce Wellington Van Dyke, son of Mr. and Mrs. R.C. Van Dyke of Beamsville and formerly of Grimsby. Rev. Dr. C.M. Currie officiated at the ceremony at the home of the bride's parents.

The bride, given in marriage by her father, wore a floor-length gown of white embossed organdie. Her finger-tip veil was held by a small matching cap. She carried pink roses and white sweet peas. Her sister, Miss Eleanore Topp, was gowned in pink organdie and carried pink sweet peas and white carnations. Mr. Robert Stevens of Beamsville acted as best man. The wedding music was played by Mr. James MacVinnie of Hamilton.

After the ceremony a buffet luncheon was served from a table centred by the three-tiered wedding cake which was decorated by the sister of the bride. The bride's mother received in a navy crepe dress with a corsage of pink carnations. She was assisted by the groom's mother in a gown of navy lace with a corsage of pink carnations.

For a motor trip to New York the bride wore a dress of white printed crepe with navy accessories. They will reside in Beamsville.
