S., to Mr. Eugene Victor Illsey, formerly of Picton, now manager of the Standard Bank at McTaggart, Sask., and formerly at the staff of the same bank in this city.  The sacred edifice was appropriately decorated with golden rod and golden glow for the occasion by the girl friends of the bride.  Sharply at ten o’clock the bridal party entered the church to the strains of the wedding march from Lohengrin, played by Miss L. LaVoie, organist. The bride proceeded up the aisle on the arm of her father.  She looked very charming in a dress of ivory duchesse satin wearing the customary veil and a wreathe of orange blossoms, and carrying white roses.  The maid of honor was Mrs. (Rev.) G.R. Beamish, the sister of the bride, who wore pink crepe de chene and carried pink chrysanthemums.  The bridesmaids were Miss Flossie Graham, of Belleville, and Miss Jessie Newberry, of St. Louis, both of whom were dressed in yellow crepe de chene with large picture hats of black and bore red roses.  Mrs. (Dr.) Ackerill, mother of the bride wore brown silk with hat to match.  The groom was attended by Mr. E. O’Flynn.  the ushers were Messrs Chas. Addison, uncle of the bride, Rochester;  Joseph Wallbridge, Harold Clarke, Hugh Williamson, of Picton.  The ceremony was performed by the Rev. Rural Dean Beamish, rector of St. Thomas and brother-in-law of the bride.  After the magic words had been said that made the happy couple man and wife and during the signing of the register, Mrs. Charles Wilmot sang, “Beloved it is Morn.”  Immediately thereafter the bridal procession left the church to the pealing notes of Mendelssohn’s “Wedding March.”  The party then repaired to the home of the bride’s parents on John street where a wedding breakfast and reception was held.  There were many guests both from Belleville and from outside places.  Mr. and Mrs. Illsey left on the 1.50 train this afternoon for their home in McTaggart.  A very large number of handsome presents were received by the bride.  Particularly noticeable among them was a handsome clock the gift of the men of John Street Presbyterian church, of whose choir the groom was formerly a member. The many friends of the popular young couple will wish then perfect happiness in their matrimonial life.

The marriage of Mr. Roy Johnston and Miss Mabel Chalmers, both members of the congregation of St. Alban's church, Adolphustown, was on the morning of June 11th, celebrated by the Rector, Rev. Canon Roberts, in that church renowned for its beauty and as being the U.E.L. Memorial Church, its internal beauty having, for the occasion, been added to by tasty floral and fern decorations, the work of lady friends of the young couple. The high estimation in which the young people are held was abundantly evidenced by the large congregation that assembled to witness and take part in the solemnization, and surely never was there a more orderly and reverent congregation at any marriage ceremony. The apostolic injunction was obeyed, all things being 'done decently and in order'. The opening hymn was 276, B.C.P. by Canon Welch, some time of Toronto, the first three and the sixth verses. A second hymn, "O Perfect Love", 277 B.C. P., being sung after the first blessing to Dr. Dyke's tune "O Strength and Stay", the music for which Miss Blomfield, afterwards Mrs. Gurney, wrote this hymn in about 15 minutes to be sung for the first time at her sister's marriage. The service concluded, Mendelsohn's Wedding March played by Miss Dorothea Roberts, the organist, and the register signed the happy young couple left for a short trip westward followed by the  hearty "God speed" of all.
