Full Text

St. Andrew's Anglican Church, Grimsby, decorated with autumn flowers and bitter-sweet berries, was the setting for the wedding on October 6th of Joyce Helen, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Peter J. Marlow, to Ronald Saxty, son of Mr. and Mrs. H.M. Clarke of South Grimsby, formerly of Montreal. The Rev. E.A.Brooks, M.A., officiated. Miss Jayne Kirtz, Hamilton, played the wedding music, and Miss Patricia McDonald, Hamilton, was the soloist.

The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, wore a ballerina-length dress of toast nylon tulle with a jacket of imported lace. Her headdress was of matching lace and tulle. She carried a nosegay of pale pink roses and bouvardia. Miss Joyce Marshall, Hamilton, cousin of the bride, as maid of honour, wore a dress of harvest gold corded taffeta, brown feathered hat, gold fish-net mittens and gold slippers. She carried bronze and gold feathered 'mums.

The grooms' youngest sister, Miss Judy Clarke, as flower girl, was dressed in a short frock of soft green corded taffeta with wreath of ivy in her long red hair. Her flowers were a nosegay of pale pink carnations.

Mr. Robert Clarke was groomsman for his brother, and the ushers were Messrs. Donald Cox, Brantford, and William Marlow.

A reception followed for 70 guests at the home of Mrs. A.R. Maeder, the bride's mother wearing pansy purple, the groom's mother tile crepe. Both wore corsages of pink roses.

Leaving on their wedding trip to the Adirondacks, the bride donned a brown flecked English woollen suit with brown accessories, and a melon colour topcoat. They will reside in Grimsby.
