On Wednesday afternoon, Sept. 25th, St. John's Church, York Mills, was the scene of a very pretdy country wedding, when Elsie Margaret, eldest daughter of Lieut.-Colonel and Mrs. van Nostrand, was united in marriage with Mr. Robert Dilworth, of Lynedoch, Ontario, son of the late Mr. Robert Campbell and Mrs. Campbell, of Hamilton.
The ceremony was performed by the Rev. Canon Marsh, of Lindsay, a cousin of the bride, assisted by the Rev. Richard Ashcroft, the rector of the parish. The church was beautifully decorated with harvest decorations by the members of the congregation.
The bride, who was given away by her father, wore a gown of white crepe de chene over white satin, with a fichu of carrick-ma-cross lace, trimmed with seed pearls. Her veil, which was of white tulle edged with pearls, was caught under a Juliet cap of pearls. She carried an ivory prayer book, from which hung lilies of the valley and maiden hair fern, and wore a gold wrist watch, the gift of the groom. She was attended by her sister, Miss Nora van Nostrand, the maid of honor, who wore a gown of green crepe de chene over green satin, trimmed with silver butterflies and lace, and a black velours hat with white osprey, and carried an armful of melody roses and lilies of the valley. The bridesmaids were Miss Mabel Campbell, sister of the groom; Miss Minnie Barry, and Miss Marjorie vanNostrand, a cousin of the bride; Miss Muriel Leishman, the Misses Louisa and Kathleen van Nostrand, sisters of the bride. Their gowns, which were crepe de chene over satin, were yellow and mauve alternately, and all wore black beaver hats trimmed with tulle. They carried sheaves of yellow chrysanthemums. The groom's gift to the maid of honor and the bridesmaids were pendants. Mr. Charles Mewburn, of Hamilton, was best man, and the ushers were Messrs. Basil Wedd, Arthur Roswell, Howard Robertson and James Crellman. Their gifts were pearl vest buttons. Mrs. John van Nostrand presided at the organ.
After the ceremony, a reception was held at the family residence, "Fairview," by Lieut.-Colonel and Mrs. van Nostrand, the latter looking handsome in a gown of rose satin veiled with grey marquisette and trimmed with tiny roses. She carried American Beauty roses. Refreshments were served in a marquee on the lawn, the welcome change in the weather making it very enjoyable for guests. An orchestra played on the verandah during the afternoon.
Mr. and Mrs. Campbell left for the West late in the afternoon, the bride going away in a brown French tailor-made, with hat to match. On their return they will reside in Lynedoch.
