Full Text

Glowing candlelight from an arrangement of Cathedral Tapers illuminated the altar of St. Peter's Cathedral, London, Saturday morning, July 28th, for the ceremony that united Lois Elaine Greening and Eugene John Gordon in marriage. The Rev. Father Feeney officiated, for the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Dan Greening of Forward Avenue, London, and the son of Mrs. Eileen Gordon, of Grimsby. Mrs. Pauline Thorne Creighton was soloist and Dr. Harvey Robb was at the organ.

Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore a gown of French lace and bridal satin, which swept into a cathedral train. The moulded bodice extended into a lace overskirt and her long sleeves formed lace points over her hands. A bonnet of orange blossoms held her finger-tip veil of tulle illusion and she carried a white orchid and stephanotis.

Attendants were Miss Doris Teahen (Chatham), cousin of the bride, Miss Mary Gordon (Toronto), sister of the groom, Mrs. Robert Hardy and Mrs. James Crummer, both of London. They were gowned alike in white nylon and satin, with matching picture hats and carried lovers' knots of red roses.

John Corkey, Peterborough, was groomsman and the ushers were Robert Barber, Belleville, Robert Schmitt, Detroit, Howard Avison, Brantford, and Walter Hilts, of Grimsby.

Receiving at the C.C.C., the bride's mother was gowned in primrose crepe with lace bodice and matching hat of nylon tulle, with toast accessories, and she carried an orchid on her handbag. The groom's mother assisted in periwinkle blue lace over satin. Her accessories were navy blue and she wore an orchid corsage.

The couple will honeymoon in the Laurentians. For her travelling ensemble, the bride chose an eggshell nylon suit, with navy accessories and a cornflower corsage.

On their return Mr. and Mrs. Gordon will reside in Grimsby.
