Harbour Authors Wed
March 2, 2006
Two veteran Harbour Publishing personalities wed on Feb. 25, capping off a 20-year courtship. The groom, Franklin W. White, longtime Harbour landlord, special sales representative and contributor to Raincoast Chronicles and the bride, Edith Iglauer, author of five Harbour titles including the classic Fishing with John, met through their involvement with the Madeira Park publishing house. The ceremony took place in the Caulfeild home of marriage commissioner Pam Robbins with a small party consisting of the bride’s son Jay Hamburger, his partner Attie Gell and their son Sylvan; the groom’s daughter Marilyn Plant and her husband Charles; and the groom’s son Don White, his wife Crystal and their daughter Kathleen. Harbour publishers Howard and Mary White were out of the country and unable to attend. The bride’s ring, bearing a silver-and-gold raven motif in the Northwest Coast style, was presented by Sylvan Hamburger. The bridal bouquet was caught by Kathleen White. Following the ceremony the party retired to the Plant residence, where they were joined by the groom’s nephews Douglas and David Plant and their partners Carla and Ilona for a champagne toast and the cutting of the cake. The bridal auto was decorated by Sylvan Hamburger and his associate Tristan. The newlyweds spent their wedding night at the Sylvia Hotel, in a room with a view.
The couple considered having a more public wedding but given their collective age of 178 and the hundreds of relatives and friends they have, the prospect was daunting, so they decided to elope.
Everyone at Harbour Publishing offers their best wishes to Edith and Frank!
