Cumby - Parrott Wedding

One of the prettiest weddings of the season took place at the United Church, Winterton on Friday, August 31st at 7 p.m. when Agnes Carolyn, daughter of Mrs. R. W. Parrott of Winterton, became the bride of Roy, son of Mrs. Tina Cumby and the late George Cumby of Heart's Content. The Rev. H. A. Mercer, B.A., performed the ceremony.
Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore a floor-length gown of white brocaded satin, with silver slippers. Her shoulder-length bouffant veil was held in place by a crown of pearl and crystal, and her bouquet was of pink and white assorted flowers.
Her maid of honour was her sister, Miss Ann Parrott, and her bridesmaids were the groom's sister, Miss Ruth Cumby, the bride's cousin, Miss Hilda Hindy, and the bride's niece, Miss Vivian Parrott. All four wore identical gowns of street length autumn gold satin with overskirts of organza, with matching pillbox hats and shoes; they carried nosegays of assorted autumn flowers with gold velvet streamers. The flower girl was the bride's cousin, little Mary Green, and she was dressed in white nylon with gold accessories, white shoes, and her basket was laden with pretty autumn blooms.
Attending the groom as best man was Mr. Lorne Parrott, while the ushers were Messrs. William Cumby, Gerald Green and Wallace Pinhorn.
During the ceremony the hymn "Lead Us Heavenly Father" was sung by the congregation, and while the register was being signed Mrs. L. Prole and Mrs. V. Green rendered as a duet the hymn "O Perfect Love." The organist was Mrs. L. Prole.
The reception was held at Dawe's Restaurant, Bay Roberts, where the guests were received by the bride's mother who wore a dress of dawn blue lace over taffeta with white accessories and a corsage of pink and white carnations. The groom's mother wore an aqua print silk with white accessories and a corsage of white carnations.
After the wedding supper was over the usual toasts were honoured with Captain Maxwell Frampton, brother-in-law of the bride, as master of ceremonies. The toast to the bride was given by the Rev. H. A. Mercer and responded to by the groom who then proposed the toast to the bridesmaids. Mr. Lorne Parrott, the best man, responded.
For her going-away the bride chose a suit of medium gray wool with royal blue accessories; her corsage was of sweetheart roses. The honeymoon was spent at Moncton and at other places in the Maritime Provinces and in Maine, U.S.A.
The newly-weds have now taken up residence at Heart's Content where the groom is employed with Western Union Cable Company.

We cannot think of them as dead,
Who walk with us no more;
Along the path of life we tread,
They have but gone before.
