Smith - Penney Wedding

The marriage of Verna Elizabeth, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frederick Smith of Tilton, and Samuel, son of Mrs. Ethel and the late John Penney of Salmon Cove, Carbonear, was solemnized in All Saints Church, Tilton on Saturday afternoon, August 13, at 4 o'clock. Rev. E. Willis performed the ceremony and the organist was Mrs. Maxwell Adams.
The bride wore traditional white and carried a bouquet of red carnations and rosebuds, while her sister, Doreen, as maid of honour, wore a gown of lemon nylon with matching bandeau. Bridesmaids were Lucy Penney, sister of the groom, and Mabel Sheppard, who wore gowns in shades of pink and blue respectively. Because the bride's father is presently working outside the province, the duties of father-giver were performed by her uncle, Eugene Smith; best man was Ernest Penney, the groom's brother and the bridesboys were Derrick Penney, his cousin and Walter Gosse, the bride's cousin.
Following the motor drive for a brief call at the home of the groom at Salmon Cove, a reception was held at the Anglican School at Tilton, where the wedding supper was served and the usual toasts honoured.
For the present, Mr. and Mrs. Penney are residing at Tilton.

Rees - Vokey Wedding

A very pretty wedding was solemnized at Holy Redeemer Church, Spaniard's Bay on Saturday, July 23, at 4 p.m., when Ruby Olive, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Solomon Vokey of Spaniard's Bay, and Mr. Wilfred Clayton Rees of Bell Island were united in Holy Matrimony. Rev. Isaac Butler, B.A., performed the double ring ceremony.
To the strains of the Bridal Chorus the bride entered the church looking very lovely in a ballerina-length gown of white nylon lace and tulle over satin, with bouffant skirt, and topped with a short-sleeved bolero. Her shoulder length veil of nylon net with daintily embroidered edging fell from a coronet covered with pearls and sequins. Her bouquet consisted of red roses. The bride was given in marriage by her father.
The bride's only attendant was Miss Inez Rees, cousin of the groom, and she was dressed in a waltz length gown of sapphire blue chiffon and carried a bouquet of blue and white carnations.
Little Marilyn Green, the bride's niece, was an adorable flower girl in her charming dress and matching accessories, while her contemporary Randy Sullivan, the bride's nephew, ably performed the duties of ring bearer.
The best man was the bride's brother-in-law, Mr. Leo Green.
The reception was held at the delightfully Benville Tea Rooms, Brigus.
