Against a background of chrysanthemums the wedding took place in Trinity United Church, Beamsville, on October 13th, at 3 o'clock, of Dorothy Elizabeth, elder daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W.R.Shields, Beamsville, to William Alan Dunkley, of Toronto. The ceremony was performed by Rev. R. Simpson, assisted by Rev. C.M. Currie. Mr. Wallace Findlay presided at the organ.

The bride, given in marriage by her father, wore a gown of ivory brocaded taffeta with circular train and a fingertip veil of tulle illusion. She carried a cascade of cream roses with stephanotis and white heather from Scotland. Miss Lillian Shields was maid of honour for her sister, and Mrs. William Hill was bridesmaid. They were gowned alike in moss green velvet with matching caps fashioned of moss green velvet leaves and carried crescents of bronze chrysanthemums.

Mr. Jack Dunkley, twin brother of the groom, was best man. Mr. Charles Shields and Mrs. Jerry Dunkley ushered.

The reception was held in the Church Hall where the bride's mother received wearing a gown of spice brown faille with brown velvet hat and corsage of garnet rosebuds.

For a wedding trip to Quebec and the Laurentians, the bride donned a suit of copper foliage velvet with matching hat, brown suede accessories and camel hair topcoat. Mr. and Mrs. Dunkley will reside in Kingston.
