NO ONE is ever too old for romance, as a couple from Quadring have proved.

John Featherstone, known as Norman, and Dorothy Sixsmith have tied the knot at St Margaret’s Church aged 82 and 77 respectively.

Norman, a semi-retired farmer, said: “A friend introduced us. I took her out to lunch at the Goat Inn in Frognall, which is where we held our wedding reception.

“It went from there. That was just a year ago.”

Norman proposed to Dorothy at Christmas.

Norman, a widower, is a semi-retired farmer, while Dorothy is retired. She is from Orton Goldhay, near Peterborough.

The couple have four children between them, with Norman having sons Michael and David, and Dorothy having daughters Jane and Christine.

The wedding took place on June 11, with Dorothy being given away by her brother John Curr. Matron of honour was Oom Curr.

Norman’s son Michael was best man.

The ceremony was followed by a honeymoon near Lowestoft.
