At 3 o'clock Saturday, July 19, the Rev. W.J. Scott united in marriage, in Trinity United Church, Beamsville, Blanche Edna, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. I.L. Bowman, Durham Rd., Beamsville, and Raymond Edward, son of Mrs. Burton and the late Edward Burton, Beamsville.

Given away by her father, the bride was attired in white lace over taffeta, fashioned on semi-crinoline lines. Her silk illusion finger-tip veil was held in place by a semi-helmet headdress and she carried pink carnations and lily of the valley. Her maid of honour was her cousin, Miss Seneth Merritt, who wore pink lace over taffeta with matching Juliet cap and she carried a harmonizing bouquet of gladioli.

Mr. Theron Conley was best man; the ushers were Mr. Roy Bowman and Mr. Horace Burton. Baskets of pink and white gladioli brightened the church. Mrs. Jean George presided at the organ and Mrs. Roy Bowman sang "At Dawning" and "I'll Walk Beside You".

The reception was held at El Rancho Casa Blanca. The bride's mother received in navy blue sheer with white accessories and white rose corsage. The groom's mother received in blue nylon faconne crepe and wore a corsage of pink roses.

The bride's travelling attire was a powder blue linen suit dress with pink accessories. She wore a corsage of red roses. After a motor trip to various points in Northern Ontario, the couple will reside in Beamsville.
