After a 44 year relationship between Colin Dunn and Sally Smith, the duo decided it was time to take the commitment further
Colin first met in Sally – a mother of four – in 1972 behind the bar of a social club he visited every weekend after work. After a while, he asked her out and she said ‘yes’
‘Sally used to serve me every weekend when I’d go in after work. We got chatting and she got used to me going in. Eventually, I asked her out.’
The couple only got engaged last year after all their children have left home and they finally had time for themselves.
And so before friends and family, 84 years old Colin and 82 years old Sally got married at St Mary’s Church in Middleton, before heading over to the social club where they first met to enjoy a meal after the ceremony.
With the right partner, love is just a beautiful thing.
