St. Andrew's Church decorated with delphiniums and roses was the scene of the marriage on Saturday afternoon, June 28, of Phillippa Constance Thompson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Victor Thompson, Grimsby, and Gordon James Hood, son of Mr. and Mrs. James Hood, Montreal. The Rev. E.A. Brooks officiated. The wedding music was played by Mrs. McIntosh and Mrs. Gordon Hadler as the soloist.

Entering the church with her father, the bride wore her grandmother's gown of ivory corded silk with a train. The fitted bodice buttoned down the front with off the shoulder draped neckline and long tight sleeves. She is the fourth generation in her family to wear the 102 year old veil of pointe Vennesian lace, held at the side of her head with orange blossoms and lying in folds along the train. She carried an arm bouquet of daisies and cream roses.

Matron of honour, Mrs. Robert S. Thompson, (sister-in-law of the bride), bridesmaids Miss Nancy MacCaulay, Ottawa, Miss Muriel Gracey, Grimsby. All wore similar gowns in graduated shades of blue net over taffeta with full skirts, fitted bodices and off the shoulder draped neckline. They wore gauntlets to match with blue floral headdress and carried bouquets of pink buds. Groomsman was Mr. Allan Hood, brother of the groom, and the ushers were Messrs. John Smith, Fraser Abraham, James Sunn, Montreal, and Robert Thompson, Windsor, brother of the bride.

About 250 guests were present at the reception held at the Village Inn. Welcoming them the bride's mother was in dusty pink lace with hat to match. The groom's mother wore medium blue chiffon with grey hat and accessories. Both ladies wore orchid corsages.

For the wedding trip to Lake Simcoe, the bride's costume was a navy silk suit with white accessories and a corsage of pink rosebuds.

Upon their return, Mr. and Mrs. Hood will motor via Yellowstone National Park to British Columbia where they will reside.
