Trinity United Church, Grimsby, was the scene of the wedding on Saturday evening, June 7, when Elsie Lorraine, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Frederick Bartle, Grimsby, was united in marriage by the Rev. R.K. Lemkay to William R. Lewis, son of Mr. and Mrs. Clarence W. Lewis.
The bride's gown of white satin and nylon net had an overdress of white Chantilly lace, and her fingertip veil was held in place with a matching headdress. She carried lilies-of-the-valley and orchids. She was given away by her father. Identical mauve taffeta and sheer nylon gowns were worn by the bridal attendants - Miss Susan Bartle, Miss Shirley Stretton (Waterdown), and Mrs. F. Moorcroft, of Smithville. Their headdresses matched and in their bouquets were purple shades of iris and lilacs.
Mr. George Winkelmaier, Grimsby, was groomsman; ushers were Mr. Grant Burroughes, Toronto; Mr. George Clemens, London; Mr. Robert Barber, Grimsby, and Mr. G.P. Chetwynd.
Organist was Mr. K.C. Baxter, and Mr. Harold Jarvis sang.
Welcoming about 125 guests, the bride's mother was in a becoming dove grey lace with red flowered hat and red rose corsage, while the groom's mother, assisting, was in jewel blue chiffon with matching feathered hat and a gardenia corsage.
After their motor trip to the Southern States, the couple will live in Grimsby. For travelling, the bride was in a grey wool suit with navy and red accessories and a white Milan straw hat.
