British Couple World’s Oldest Newlyweds

A 103-year-old man and a 91-year-old woman held their wedding in Britain on Saturday, becoming the oldest couple in the world to get married.
George Kirby and Doreen Luckie looked delighted as they tied the knot at a hotel in the seaside town of Eastbourne, southern England, before close friends and family, reports AFP. The bride wore a white dress with blue flowers while the groom, a former boxer, was dressed in a suit and tie, and was in a wheelchair following a recent fall. With a combined age of 194 years, the pair beat the previous record held by a French couple, Francois Fernandez and Madeleine Francineau, who had a combined age of 191 years. The couple reportedly has seven children, 15 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren between them through their previous marriages.
