I know that a shield grants a parry save which is a 6+ ward save.
I also know that a shield grants -1 modifier to armour save.

So does that mean that...

If a model is equipped with a shield, it then get 6+ armour save (5+ if light armour + shield) AND a 6+ ward save (parry)?

In combat, fighting to the front and using a hand weapon & sheild.
Yes, that is correct.

In addition to what's been stated, also remember that Parry Saves cannot be taken against Impact Hits or Stomps. Nor can Parry Saves be claimed if the model is mounted or Frenzied. This does not affect the Armor bonus though (you always get that if you're using the shield), just the special Ward Save. Page 88 of the BRB has all the restrictions and conditions.
