The Rev. J.P. McLeod of Grimsby and Rev. D. Lute, of Tyrone, brother-in-law of the groom, officiated at the wedding on Saturday, September 22, in St. John Presbyterian Church when Thelma Barbara, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Stanley Gunning, and Fred Raymond May, son of Mr. and Mrs. Harold May, all of Grimsby, were married. The bride was given away by her father.

Her bridal gown was of ivory satin, the skirt panelled with Chantilly lace and finishing in a train. Her long veil was caught to a tiara of pearls and she carried Good Luck chrysanthemums and bouvardia. Mrs. Morris Piett, costumed in pink satin and net, carrying pink carnations and ivy, was matron of honour, while the flower girl, Beverley Gunning, the bride's niece, was dressed in blue with Pinocchio roses in her bouquet.

Mr. Lloyd Smith, Grimsby, was best man; ushers were Mr. Max Gunning and Mr. Francis May.

Presiding at the organ, Mrs. D. McIntosh accompanied Mrs. J.P. McLeod who sang.

About 40 guests were present at the reception at El Rancho Casa Blanca. The bride's mother wore navy crepe with pink carnations corsage, while the groom's mother wore black costume with touches of pink and a white carnation corsage.

The bride wore a beige gabardine suit, with dark green accessories and a carnation corsage, for the wedding trip in the United States.
