A very pretty wedding was solemnized at the home of 
Mr. and Mrs. Frank Bertran of Boston on Saturday 
22 Sep 1917, when their only daughter, Martha Leone, was united in marriage to Mr. John Loder Hyde of Bealton, youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. Elgin Hyde, 
Rev. R. G. Dale officiating.

The parlor was beautifully decorated with a bank and isle of white [sabers] and ferns. Mrs. Audrey Hellyer, cousin of the groom, played the wedding march.

The bride was given away by her father, and looked most charming in a gown of ivory duchesse satin with court train and trimmings of silk crepe-de-chins and pearls. She carried a shower boquet [sic] of white roses and sweet peas and wore the customary veil and orange blossoms.

Miss Helen Be[a]craft of Toronto was maid of honor, and was gowned in pink silk crepe-de-chene with silver trimmings. Master Donald Taylor of Brantford, nephew of the groom, did the honors as page dressed in white velvet. He carried the ring in a basket of flowers. Miss Ethel Baird sang "Smiling."

After the ceremony the company of about 70 guests were photographed on the lawn, return to the dining room which was decorated with pink and white roses and smilax for the wedding dinner.

The bridegroom's gift to the bride was a gold wrist watch, to the maid of honor, a gold pendant, to the page, a gold ring, and to the pianist and soloist, gold pins set with pearls.

The bride and groom left for Brantford by auto to entrain for Hamilton and Toronto. Upon their return they will reside at Bealton. The bride's going away gown was a dark green taffeta suit with a white hat and white fux fur.
