Full Text

The altar of All Saints' Church, Ottawa, was banked with pale pink gladioli and bouvardia and lit with white tapers in candelabra for the wedding on Saturday September 22nd, of Lorna May, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Maynard H. Chapman, Ottawa, to Brian Harper Tenny, son of Mr. and Mrs. H.W. Tenny, of Winona.

Vei. Archdeacon C.G. Hepburn officiated, assisted by Rev. Brian Freeland. Kenneth Little sang.

Mr. Chapman gave his daughter in marriage and she was attended by her sister, Miss Ethel Chapman, as maid of honour, and by her cousin, Miss Maureen Hayter, of Edmonton, Alta., as flower girl.

Mr. Ralph Farrell, of Grimsby, was best man and the ushers were Mr. Donald Chapman, brother of the bride, Mr. Edward Greig, of Grimsby, and Mr. Joseph Gulyes, of Hamilton.

The bride wore a gown of ivory taffeta with a strapless bodice and styled on princess lines, short flared bolero of imported french lace. Her Juliet cap of lace held a fingertip veil of tulle illusion and she carried ivory roses and gladioli. Her only ornament was an heirloom cross. Her maid of honour was gowned in powder blue taffeta with bouquet of pink gladioli, while the flower girl was in pink and carried a nosegay.

The reception was held at the home of the bride's parents for 75 guests. The bride's mother wore a frock of blue lace and crepe, with a corsage of pink roses, and the groom's mother wore a dress of rose-beige crepe and lace. Her corsage was of Talisman roses.

Leaving for a wedding trip to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to visit the groom's grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. W.L. Tenny, the bride wore an English grey wool flannel suit with a white blouse, navy blue velvet accessories and a corsage of deep red Pinocchio roses.
