Pink gladiola and dahlia blooms former the setting for a pretty summer wedding in Trinity Anglican Church on Saturday, when Rev. T. B. Holland officiated the marriage of Marjorie Elizabeth Gurr, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Gurr of Simcoe to Allan Beverly Clark, son of Mr. Harry Clark of Woodhouse Gore and the late Mrs. Clark of Woodstock.

A large gathering of friends and relatives were present to witness the ceremony. Wedding music was played by the organist of the church, Mr. A. W. Marshall.

The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, looked charming in a gown of powder blue organdy brocade over blue satin, it being of floor length. Her shoulder veil was of silk with a floral embroidered border and bridal wreath. 

The bride was attended by her cousin, Marion Eleanor Gay Cade, who wore a pale pink sheer floor length gown with lace bodice over pink satin. Her bouquet was of yellow roses while the bride carried Johanna Hill roses. 

The groom was attended by his brother, Lorne Martin Clark of Woodhouse Gore.

Following the ceremony a reception was held for about 30 guests at the home of the bride's aunt, Miss E. Cade, King Street. 

The bride's mother received, wearing blue silk crepe. Delicious refreshments were served with a toast to the bride and groom being offered by the bride's father.

The young couple will live in Simcoe. 
The bride has been on the staff of the British Knit Co.
