Full Text

In Ryerson United Church, Hamilton, on Saturday afternoon, May 24, standards of pink and white snapdragons provided a setting for the wedding of Phyllis, daughter of Mrs. Verrall and the late Mr. Ernest Verrall, and Howard Orr Bridgman, son of Mr. John P. Bridgman and the late Mrs. Bridgman, of Winona. The Rev. Arthur Organ conducted the ceremony at which Mr. Ernest Verrall, of Toronto, gave his sister in marriage.

The bride was attended by Mrs. Harry Carpenter, Dundas, and Mrs. Jack Durfey, Winona. Mr. Jack Durfey was best man and ushers were Mr. William Hewitson, Fruitland, and Mr. Reginald Verrall.

A gown of white marquisette over taffeta with satin applique at the yoke, down the front and around the bottom of the skirt in redingote effect, was worn by the bride, while her waist-length illusion veil was caught into a sweetheart headdress. She carried pink roses and lilies-of-the-valley. The attendants were in pink and blue costumes, respectively, of lace and net with bolero jackets, and their flowered headdresses matched. They carried sweet peas in mauve and pink tones with lilies-of-the-valley.

Mr. Gordon Morrallee was organist, and Mrs. Thomas McCord sang. Seventy-five guests were welcomed by the bride's mother, who was gowned in orchid silk and lace with touches of white and a white hat, her flowers being gardenias. Mrs. Bridgman, stepmother of the groom, assisting, wore dusty rose crepe and lace, with a navy hat and a corsage of pink roses.

Afterward the couple left for the United States for honeymoon, the bride travelling in a blue suit with navy blue accessories, and a pink rose corsage. They will live in Winona.
