A very pretty wedding took place in St. John's Presbyterian Church on Saturday afternoon, September 4th, at 3:30 o'clock, when Audrey Bernice, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Roy C. Godden, was united in marriage to Elton James Wilcox, son of Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Wilcox, Grimsby. Rev. J.P McLeod officiated at the double ring ceremony. Mrs. B. Shavers played the wedding music, while Harold Jarvis sang. The church was decorated with gladioli and white ribbon.

The bride, given in marriage by her father, wore a long gown of white satin with fitted bodice and lace yoke trimmed with seed pearls, a full skirt with long train falling from the waistline in circular style. Her fingertip veil was held in place by a beaded headdress and she carried red and white roses.

Mrs. Jean Fisher, sister of the bride, as matron of honour, wore a gown of heavenly blue moire taffeta with tight bodice and full skirt, a heart-shaped hat to match and carried gladioli and roses in contrasting colours. Mrs. Mary Anger, sister of the groom, senior bridesmaid, was gowned in pink moire taffeta, while Miss Betty Kuntz, as junior bridesmaid, wore mauve moire taffeta, both gowns made to match that of the matron of honour. Each carried gladioli and roses.

Little Barbara Grobb, niece of the bride and flower girl, wore yellow taffeta with matching hat and nosegay of contrasting flowers. Eddie Godden, nephew of the bride, acted as ring-bearer, carrying the ring on a white satin cushion. He wore a white sailor suit. The groom was attended by Mr. Wallace Grobb, and the ushers were Mr. Denis Anger and Mr. Glenn Fisher.

The reception for 100 guests was held in Beamsville School Auditorium which was decorated for the occasion with pink and white roses and pink gladioli. Many friends attended the dance which was held in the evening, wishing the bridal couple years of happiness. A Hamilton orchestra supplied the music.
