The wedding of Cynthia Margaret, youngest daughter of Mrs. Creet and the late Mr. S.T. Creet, Beamsville, formerly of Hamilton, and Donald F. Jeffrey, son of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Jeffrey, Beamsville, was solemnized in St. Alban's Anglican Church, Beamsville, on Saturday, September 22nd, by the Rev. E.F. Maunsell.

The bride, given in marriage by her brother, Mr. Norman Creet, of Sudbury, wore a crinoline gown of antique ivory lace over white satin, the skirt being finely pleated and extending into a slight train. The tight bodice was made with a double peplum at the waist and with long sleeves. With this was worn a matching lace calot adorned with white velvet forget-me-nots and a finger-tip veil of French illusion. Her bouquet was of cream roses and stephanotis, and she wore a diamond and turquoise pendant, the gift of her mother.

Miss Margaret Reid, of Niagara Falls, maid of honour, and Miss Marion Shaw, of Hespeler, bridesmaid, wore crinoline gowns of nylon tulle and velvet in hyacinth blue, with velvet calots fashioned like the bride's, and carried bouquets of fuchsia shaded gladioli. Miss Karen Creet, a niece of the bride, was flower girl, wearing a shell pink silk taffeta frock with poke bonnet of the same, trimmed with blue forget-me-nots and carrying a hoop of pink rosebuds.

Pink and white carnations and baskets of white chrysanthemums and gladioli decorated the church, and Mr. Bert Filce, organist, played the wedding music.

Mr. B.E. Stapley, of Toronto, was best man and the ushers were Mr. R.R.Rogers of Windsor, and Mr. E.C. Tecko, of Toronto.

After the ceremony, a reception was held at the home of the bride's mother. The bride's mother wore a gown of sapphire blue crepe and corsage of roses to receive the guests. The groom's mother was in a gown of red wine crepe with black accessories and corsage of pink roses.

For going away, the bride wore an English tweed suit of sage green with brown velvet hat, alligator shoes and bag and a corsage of gold roses. The couple left by motor for New York, and upon their return will reside in Sudbury.
