The home of Mr. and Mrs. F. H. Austin, of Woodhouse, was artistically decorated with pink and white roses yesterday, 3 Mar 1920, the occasion being the marriage of their only daughter, Ellen Helene, to Mr. Willard Butler, second son of Mr. and Mrs. Nathan Butler of Woodhouse.

The ceremony was performed at 12 o'clock by Rev. J. T. Cavers. 

The bride was given away by her father, and was becomingly gowned in white organdy, satin trimmed, with the customary veil and orange blossoms and carried a shower bouquet of white and pink carnations.

Miss Evelyn Ferris, cousin of the bride, made a charming ring-bearer; the groom was supported by his brother, Frank.

Mendelssohn's wedding march was played by Mrs. Arnold Mandeville, and during the signing of the register "O Promise Me" was sung by Mrs. Harold Austin, a recent bride.

After congratulations and a wedding dinner, Mr. and Mrs. Butler left for a short honeymoon trip to Toronto, the bride travelling in a sand serge suit with hat to match. On their return they will take up their residence on the groom's farm in Woodhouse.

Many beautiful and useful presents were received and the ceremony was performed in the presence of immediate friends of both parties.
