On Saturday, May 8th, a charming wedding took place at St. John's Anglican Church, Winona, which was beautiful with palms and tall standards of pink and white snapdragons, when Edith Bernice, daughter of Mrs. Honey and the late Mr. George Honey, was united in marriage to Bruce Campbell, son of Mrs. Stuart and the late Mr. Herman Stuart. The Rev. G.F. Scovil officiated and Mrs. Marjorie Riley presided at the organ.
Given in marriage by her uncle, Mr. George Banks of Hamilton, the graceful bride wore a picturesque gown of bridal satin, made with sweetheart neck, fitted bodice, long pointed sleeves and full skirt forming a circular train. Her long veil was caught to the head with a pearl coronet, and she carried an ivory covered prayer book with white gardenias. Miss Edith Stuart, sister of the groom, attended her as maid of honour, wearing a gown of leaf-green nylon net, fashioned with full skirt and fitted bodice. She wore matching headdress and mitts and carried a bouquet of spring flowers. Misses Jean MacKaye and Marion Honey, sister of the bride, wore similar gowns of petal pink and also carried bouquets of spring flowers.
Mr. George Robinson was groomsman and the ushers were Messrs. Clarence Edward McNinch and Morley MacCallum.
Following the ceremony a reception was held at the home of Mrs. Lorne Glover, No. 8 Highway, Winona. About 60 guests were present. Mrs. Honey, mother of the bride, received in a dress of silver blue faille, with silver fox furs and grey accessories with a corsage of talisman roses. Mrs. Stuart, the groom's mother, had chosen navy blue French crepe, mink furs with navy blue accessories and a corsage of sweetheart roses.
Later the bride and groom left for a motor trip to Montreal and on their return will reside in Grimsby. For travel the bride wore a smart suit of moss green wool with brown hat and accessories, and gardenia corsage.
