On Tuesday morning at 8.30 o'clock in St. Mary's Roman Catholic Church, Miss Winifred Donella, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. H. W. Wood of Lot Street, Simcoe, became the bride of Mr. John J. Howard of Petrolea.

The ceremony was performed by Rev. Father Nagle in the presence of about 25 guests.

The bride looked very charming attired in white georgette over white satin, carrying a shower bouquet of Ophelia roses. Her sister, Miss Elizabeth Wood, was bridesmaid and wore a gown of pink chiffon. The groom was supported by his brother, Mr. George Howard of Dublin.

The bride received numerous beautiful and costly gifts, among them being three substantial cheques.

Early after dinner the wedding party motored to Waterford, where Mr. and Mrs. Howard entrained for Montreal and Ste. Anne de Beaupre, Quebec.

For travelling the bride wore a navy blue broadcloth suit, trimmed with Hudson seal and blue taffeta picture hat. After the honeymoon they will take up their residence in Petrolea.
