Paris, Nov. 20 -- A pretty autumn wedding of interest to Parisians was solemnized at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. James Liddell, Maple View Farm, Harley, on 12 Nov 1919 when their eldest daughter, Miss Marguerita, became the bride of Mr. Ernest R. Schram, son of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Schram of St. Williams.

The ceremony, which was performed by the Rev. J. Seton-Adamson, rector of St. James Church, Paris, took place in the living room before a bank of ferns, evergreens and 'mums.

The bride came in on the arm of her father, looking very pretty in a handsome gown of ivory satin with shadow lace overdress and bridal veil with orange blossoms and carrying a shower bouquet of bride's roses with chiffon streamers. She also wore the groom's gift, a pearl pendant.

Miss Mary Liddell made a charming bridesmaid in a pink silk crepe decline dress with shadow lace overdress and large brown velvet hat with pink rose trimming, and carried a bouquet of pink roses.

Mr. Corbett Schram of St. Williams acted as groomsman. Mendelssohn's wedding march was very ably rendered by Miss Giles as the bridal party came in and took their places. During the signing of the register Miss Laurene Liddell sang very sweetly "O Promise Me."

After receiving the congratulations of their friends, adjournment was made to the dining room, where a sumptuous dinner was served to over 60 guests, the tables looking very inviting, the floral decorations being yellow and white 'mums. Four girl friends of the bride acted as waitresses, the Misses Margaret and Vera Allen of Harley and the Misses Violet Redgate and Irene Leach of Paris.

The groom's favors were: To the bridesmaid a cameo pendant, the groomsman a signet ring, the pianist a gold pendant with pearl setting, and to the soloist a gold brooch.

That the young couple are very popular was evidenced by the beautiful array of gifts received, amongst which were a silver cake basket and biscuit jar from the groom's fellow employees in Penman's Limited.

Guests were present from Paris, Simcoe, Guelph, Preston, Brantford, St. Williams and Harley.

Mr. and Mrs. Schram left on a honeymoon trip to Hamilton and Buffalo, the bride travelling in a tailored suit of brown with beaver trimming and brown velvet hat with feather trimming. On their return they will make their home in Paris.
