Full Text



By a little past 6 o'clock last Tuesday morning St. James's church, Fenelon Falls, was filled by a crowd of persons, chiefly of the fair sex, who had got up thus early to witness the marriage of Mr. James D. Cameron, of Orillia, Washington, U.S., and Ida, youngest daughter of Mr. Heeley of this village. Precisely at the time appointed, 6.30, the wedding party entered the church, the bride leaning on the arm of her brother-in-law, Mr. Joseph Nevison, who gave her away, her father being far too ill to be present at the ceremony. She wore a brown cloth travelling gown with hat to match, and carried a prayer book. The bridesmaid, Miss Annie Robson, was prettily dressed in blue and gray Dresden muslin over pale blue, and had a beautiful bouquet of carnations, sweet peas and oleander blossoms. Mr. John R. Hand officiated as groomsman. The impressive service of the Church of England was read by Rev. Wm. Farncomb, and at its conclusion the customary osculatory and congratulatory proceedings were commenced. When the wedding party entered the church the choir sang the hymn "How welcome was the call," and as they left the strains of Mendelssohn's wedding march arose and the bell rang out a merry peal. After a wedding breakfast at Mr. Nevison's the newly married pair drove to Lindsay, where they took the 11 o'clock train for Montreal; but will be back here next week for a farewell visit to friends and relatives before leaving for their future home. The bridegroom, who was born at the Falls, is the eldest son of the late James Cameron, one of the oldest residents and for many years an officer of St. James's Church; and the pretty bride, who will be greatly missed by her host of young friends, has lived here nearly all her life. They are a most estimable couple, and have the hearty wishes of the whole community for their happiness and prosperity. We almost forgot to state that the bride was the recipient of many presents, some of which were of considerable value.
