Trinity United Church, Grimsby, was the scene of the wedding at 4 o'clock on Saturday, September 11th, of Audrey Aletha, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C. Frank Merritt, Grimsby, and Mr. John Kelly Dick, son of Mr. and Mrs. J.H. Dick. The Rev. A.L. Griffith officiated at the double ring ceremony.

The church was decorated with gladioli and asters for the occasion. Mr. Donald Kennedy presided at the organ and Miss Marguerite Hodd, Hamilton, sang My Prayer and Through the Years.

Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore an ivory satin gown with appliqued flowers at the hem of the full skirt, with an overskirt of imported French lace extending into a short train. Her tulle veil was caught to a headdress of satin and French lace. She carried coral Pinnochio roses and white gardenias.

Miss Jean Simenton was her cousin's attendant, gowned in cherry coloured silk velvet with matching headdress and mitts. She carried a bouquet of pale yellow roses. Miss Donna Simenton, gowned in turquoise silk velvet, with a nosegay of roses, was flower girl.

Mr. David Dick was best man for his brother, and the ushers were Mr. Lloyd Simenton and Mr. Peter Morgan.

The reception was held at the Village Inn for about 75 guests. The bride's mother received wearing a cerise dress with grey accessories, while the groom's mother assisted, gowned in dark red with matching accessories. Both wore corsages of roses.

For going away the bride chose a mulberry suit and navy topcoat with navy accessories and orchid corsage. After a trip to Eastern points the couple will reside in Grimsby.
