Full Text

In the First Methodist, Church, Baynes and Potomac Avenue, Buffalo, N.Y., at 7 o'clock, Saturday, April 12th, Miss Lois Bruce, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Matthew A. Bruce, of Kensington Avenue, Buffalo, became the bride of Mr. William Gledhill, son of Mr. and Mrs. G.W. Gledhill, of Grimsby.

Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore a gown of Chantilly lace with a cathedral length train. The portrait neckline and marquisette yoke were edged with a bertha collar, and the long pointed sleeves and long fitted bodice were accentuated by the graceful train. Her fine imported French illusion veil fell from a coronet of orange blossoms, and she carried a bouquet of calla lilies, white roses and lily of the valley.

Miss Margaret Heard, maid of honour, wore a marquisette gown of nile green fashioned with a high neck line, a lace insert giving the effect of a portrait neck. In her hair she wore a spray of flowers with a shoulder length veil. Her flowers were snapdragons and red roses.

The bridesmaids were Miss June Gledhill and Mrs. I. Barfoot. They wore pale pink and ice blue net gowns, Juliet caps with shoulder length veils, and carried snapdragons and red roses.

The bride's mother chose a light grey sheer with black accessories, her flowers being sweet peas and red roses. The groom's mother favoured a navy blue with grey accessories, and wore pink roses and sweet peas.

Mr. and Mrs. Jan Wolanek played several well-chosen organ selections, and Miss Isabel Tardif sand "I love Thee" by Grieg, and "Because".

After honeymooning at Balsam Lake, Canada, the couple will take up residence at Grimsby.
