The home of Mr. and Mrs. Amos
Booth, 268 Norfolk Street South, Simcoe, was the scene of a pretty
wedding yesterday afternoon, the occasion being the marriage of their
daughter, Miss Clara Joyce Wilcox, to Clarence E. Nobbs, son of Mr. and
Mrs. Joseph Nobbs of Norwich.
The house had been very
tastefully decorated with ferns, flowers and foliage from Ryerse
The bride looked charming,
attired in a gown of ivory satin with crystal and satin bead trimming
and wearing a customary bridal veil orange blossoms and carrying a
bouquet Ophelia roses and a shower of sweetheart roses.
Miss Winnie Hunter, cousin of
the bride, made a very pretty flower girl, wearing white silk dress and
carrying a shower bouquet of sweetheart roses. Mendelssohn's wedding
march was played by Mrs. Allen McReady of Silver Creek, New York, and
the bride was given away by her father.
After the ceremony, performed by
Rev. D. A. Moir, B.D., and congratulations, the bridal party and guests,
numbering about 60, sat down to a delicious wedding dinner catered by
Russell's of Brantford.
Later, Mr. and Mrs. Nobbs left
for Toronto for their honeymoon. The bride's travelling gown was of
reindeer broadcloth, with coat of Alice blue and reindeer shades, and
hat to match. Upon their return the happy couple will take up their
residence on the groom's farm near Norwich.
For the past six years Miss

& Mackay, and came to Simcoe from Wyecombe. She has been a very
active worker in St. James Methodist Church -- a member of the choir, a
league worker and pianist and teacher in the Sunday School. The numerous
beautiful and valuable wedding presents testify to the esteem in which
she was held.

and Mrs. Nobbs for their future happiness and prosperity.
