Spaniard's Bay -
Strickland - Moore Wedding
The marriage of Jessie, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Clifford Moore of Carbonear, to David, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ebenezer Strickland of Spaniard's Bay, was solemnized in the United Church, Carbonear, on Saturday, June 30, at 5 p.m., with the Rev. W. F. Bradbury. Miss Helena Dean was the organist.
Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore a gown of white nylon over satin, a shoulder length veil held in place by a tiara of pearls, and she carried a bouquet of white mums.
Her maid of honour was her sister Jean Moore, and bridesmaids were Frances Strickland and Rose Taylor. All three wore identical gowns of lemon with white accessories, with bouquets of mums. Flower girls Lynn Yetman and Yvonne Seymour were similarly dressed in pale blue nylon with white accessories and carried pretty baskets of mixed seasonal flowers.
Attending the groom were Gordon Young, John Strickland and William Strickland. Ushers were Joe Thoms and William Strickland, Sr.
The reception was held at St. Matthew's Hall, Bay Roberts. The bride's mother wore a dress of royal blue over lace, while the groom's mother wore a dress of navy blue over lace, their corsages consisting of red and white carnations. Nearly two hundred guests sat down to an excellent wedding supper prepared by and served by St. Matthew's branch of the CEWA under the capable direction of Mrs. L. Butler, after which the usual toasts were honoured with Mr. Haig Young as the inimitable toastmaster. The Rev. W. T. Bradbury proposed the toast to the bride; the groom did the honours to the bridesmaids while the toast to the parents was given by E. H. Vokey. All were responded appropriately by the groom, the best man, and by the Rev. E. Willis who spoke on behalf of the parents. The balance of the evening was spent in dancing.
When they return from their honeymoon Mr. and Mrs. Strickland will take up residence at Spaniard's Bay. May their lives together be long, successful, and filled with every happiness.
