A pretty wedding took place Sunday evening at the R.C. Cathedral, when ex-Private Bernard Shaw of the Royal Newfoundland Regiment, Little Hearts Ease, was united in the holy bonds of matrimony to Miss Katie Hallern of St. Vincent’s, daughter of Frances and Mary Hallern. The ceremony was performed by Rev. Dr. Greene. The bride was charmingly attired in white silk with hat to match. She was attended by her cousin. Miss Florence Hallern, who was neatily attired in pink Georgette crepe and black picture hat. The groom was ably supported by Mr. Fred Newton, brother-in-law of the groom. After the ceremony the wedding party drove to the home of the brides brother, 15 Baxter’s Hill, when a reception was held and very enjoyable evening was spent. The bride was the recipient of many useful and valuable presents. We wish Mr. and Mrs. Shaw a bon voyage over the matrimonial sea.
