Greenland - Montague Wedding
One of the prettiest weddings of the season was solemnized at St. John the Evangelist Church, Coley's Point, on Tuesday, June 25th, at 7:30 p.m., when Rev. Isaac Butler united in Holy Matrimony Annie Catherine, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ray Greenland, Coley's Point, to Mr. Clayton Steward Montague, son of Mr. and Mrs. Harvey Montague of North West River.
The bride looked radiantly beautiful as she entered the church on the arm of her uncle, Mr. John E. Noseworthy, who gave her in marriage, to the strains of the wedding march played by Miss Shirley Dawe, church organist. She was gowned in a floor length white nylon net over satin, with fitted bodice of lace and bolero jacket of lace trimmed with simulated pearls and sequins. Her fingertip veil was held in place by matching halo and she carried a bouquet of pink and white roses.
The bride was attended by her sister Joan, Mrs. Herman Crocker of Corner Brook, in town for the occasion, as matron of honour, and Miss Janet Dawe, a life long friend, as bridesmaid. Both wore floor length gowns of blue and pink nylon net over lace with matching accessories and carried bouquets of pink and white roses and blue forget-me-nots.
The duties of best man were ably performed by Mr. Clayton Rumbolt, uncle of the groom, assisted by Mr. Lewis Gosse. Ushers were Mr. Duncan Snow and Mr. Abie French.
The bride's mother was gowned in a street lengthy dress of air force blue with matching accessories; her corsage resembled the bridal bouquet of pink and white roses. During the signing of the register the hymn "O Perfect Love" was sung by the congregation.
Following the ceremony the bridal party motored to Harbour Grace, then back to the C.E.A.A. Hall, Coley's Point where the reception was held with some 110 guests attending.
Mr. Allan Dawe, master of ceremonies, proposed the toast to the bride in his usual humorous manner, to which the groom responded. Mr. Dawe then called upon several of the guests who also gave very enjoyable short speeches.
Dancing and games were then enjoyed until the wee hours of the morning. The newly-weds will leave shortly to take up residence at Northwest River.
Their many friends wish the happy couple many years of wedded happiness.
