The bride's attendants were Mrs. Barbara Bagley, dressed in orchid, Miss Eunice Taylor in green, Miss Joan Thould in yellow, Miss Evelyn Hoffman in blue and Miss Marie McGregor in pink. They wore halos to match their gowns, and carried nosegays of roses, cornflowers, and baby's breath. Flower girls were Carol and Patricia Wales, wearing frocks of pink and blue satin and also carrying nosegays.

Best man was Mr. William Collings and ushers were the bride's brother, Sgt. William Latham, Cpl. Peter Trozzi, LAC, Alan Shields and FO. George McGregor.

A reception was held later in the Oddfellows Temple for 130 guests. The bride's mother, received assisted by Mrs. Robert Elliott, in the absence of the groom's mother. The couple left on a honeymoon taking them to Ottawa and Timmins, the bride travelling in a costume of Alice Blue.
