A Bungay couple celebrated 60 years of love and happiness today after reaching their diamond wedding anniversary.
Peter and Ellen Davey tied the knot on October 5, 1957.
The pair met in Ellingham in 1954 and married three years later following Mr Davey’s service in the army.
Mr Davey took his future bride, by bicycle, to the cinema on their first date.
She remembers: “I remember he gave me a box of chocolates. And every time we would go to the cinema, he always bought a box of chocolates for me.”
