At 3 o'clock Saturday afternoon, in Colborne Street United Church, London, Ont., the wedding was solemnized when Doris Edith, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Raymond E. Hughes, of London, became the bride of Mr. Douglas Evan Millikin, Kapuskasing, son of Mr. and Mrs. Keith C. Millikin, Evanleigh, Winona. The Rev. Dr. A. Murray Stuart conducted the double-ring ceremony.

Tall white candelabra and bouquets of blue delphinium, pink carnations and white gladioli in softly blended tones, in white standards, decorated the church for the occasion. Mr. Theodore Gray, presiding at the organ, accompanied Mrs. Hugh Hughes, Burgessville, who sang A Perfect Love and I'll Walk Beside You.

The bride,given away by her father, was wearing a gown of ivory satin and net, the bertha collar and long sleeves edged with heirloom lace, and the bouffant skirt flowing into a slight train. Her veil fell from a heart-shaped headdress of matching lace, and she carried Butterfly roses, bouvardia and sweet peas.

Miss Geraldine Hughes, sister of the bride, in blue faille, and carrying peach-toned Shasta daisies and sweet peas, and the Misses Mildred Woodend and Jeanne de Jausserand, gowned in peach faille, their flowers being blue-toned Shasta daisies and sweet peas, were bridesmaids.

Mr. Cy Haycraft, Kapuskasing, was best man, while the ushers were Mr. Donald Hughes, Toronto, brother of the bride, and Mr. Robin Millikin, Winona, brother of the groom.

A reception followed at Llyn Lodge, the bride's mother receiving in an orchid costume with touches of pink and Butterfly rose corsage, assisted by the mother of the groom, in dusty rose and navy, her flowers being Johanna Hill roses. Leaving for their wedding trip to New York, the bride went away in a grey costume with wine shortie coat and dark red carnations in her corsage. The couple will reside at Kapuskasing.
