A couple is showing the world that it is never too late to find love.

The couple is believed to be Britain’s oldest newlyweds.

The happy bride, 81-year-old Joan Grant, married the love of her life, 90-year-old Ted Wright, in front of 20 guests at the Swindon registry office.

According to their family, the two met while working at a WHSmith convenience store. The two have been dating for about 10 years before they decided to tie the knot.

The happy couple is now planning to spend their honeymoon with former coworkers.

The elderly newlyweds from Swindon said that they have invited 43 friends from their retirement group of ex-WHSmith workers for a “funnymoon” get together.

The sweet couple did not accept wedding gifts. Instead, they asked for donations to be made to a hospital.
