A Pretty March Wedding

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 Bros. 

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 Wilcox has been stenographer and bookkeeper for the legal firm of Innes & 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.

The Reformer joins with a host of friends in congratulations and best wishes to Mr. and Mrs. Nobbs for their future happiness and prosperity.
