Full Text

In St. John's Presbyterian Church, Grimsby, with Rev. J.P. McLeod officiating, the wedding was solemnized on Saturday at 3 o'clock, of Cora Jean, youngest daughter of Mrs. Cora Gordon of Grimsby and Mr. Cecil Robinson, son of Mrs. Mary Robinson of Grimsby. The church was decorated with roses, delphinium and hydrangeas, and the guest pews were marked with white satin ribbons.

The bride, given in marriage by Lorne Marshall, wore her mother's wedding gown of ivory satin, with an overdress of handmade Battenburg lace, made in princess style. The gown had a graceful train and the long veil was held by a coronet of orange blossoms and seed pearls. She carried a bouquet of garnet roses and bouvardia showers.

Miss Joyce Dyball as bridesmaid wore a floor-length dress of pink net with a matching picture hat. She carried a nosegay of Peerless roses and pink and white sweet peas.

Mr. Leslie Robinson, brother of the groom, was best man and the ushers were Mr. Stanley Snyder and Mr. Arthur Robertson.

The wedding music was played by Mrs. Lorne Marshall, sister of the bride, and during the signing of the register Mrs. J.P. McLeod sang "I'll Walk Beside Thee".

At the reception which followed at The Pines, Stoney Creek, the bride's mother wore a gown of navy blue crepe with white accessories and a corsage of rose carnations. The groom's mother wore a flowered silk gown with grey accessories and a corsage of pink carnations.

For travelling, the bride wore a grey suit with white accessories and a corsage of deep rose carnations.

On their return from their honeymoon, the couple will reside in Grimsby.
