A happy event took place at
the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Pew, Windham, on Wednesday, 12 Oct
1910, at twelve o'clock noon, when their daughter Nellie, was united
in the holy bonds of matrimony to Mr. John Townsend, also of Windham,
Rev. A. W. Shepperson of Colborne performing the ceremony..
Miss Orpha Cameron of
Simcoe played the wedding march while the happy couple took their
places under an arch of evergreens and maple leaves.
The bride was becomingly
gowned in cream San Toy, and wore the customary bridal veil. She
was assisted by her cousin, Miss Minnie Cunningham, who was gowned
in blue voila.
The bridegroom was
attended by his brother, Mr. Henry Townsend.
After the ceremony a very
bountiful wedding dinner was enjoyed by about 60 friends and
relatives of the contracting parties.
Mr. and Mrs. Townsend left
via M.C.R. for Niagara Falls and points east.
