On Wednesday, at high noon, Miss Gertrude Ileta, second daughter of Mr. and Mrs. H. H. Garnham of Guysboro, was united in marriage to Albert E. Swinn.

The interesting ceremony was performed at the home of the bride by Rev. W. G. Fagan of Corinth, in the presence of about 80 guests from Tillsonburg, Aylmer, Port Burwell, Fairground and other points.

The bride looked charming in a becoming gown of taupe taffeta, with georgette overdress embroidered in gold, and veil caught with orange blossoms. She carried a beautiful shower bouquet of bridal roses.

She was attended by her sister, Miss Vera, who wore a charming gown of sand-colored satin.

The bridal party stood beneath an arch of evergreens and chrysanthemums, the Lohenergrin wedding march being played by Mrs. Charles Birdsall, sister of the groom, who also rendered Robin's Return" during the signing of the register.

The groom's gift to the bride was a sunburst of pearls with diamond centre, to the bridesmaid and pianist pearl broaches and to the groomsman gold cuff links.

A buffet lunch was served by girl friends of the bride, after which Mr. and Mrs. Swinn left for Tillsonburg amid showers of confetti, etc. 

They boarded the evening train for a honeymoon trip to St. Thomas and western points, and on their return will reside on the groom's farm, west of Mabee.
