It’s never too late to find love – according to a 92-year old great-grandma from Sheffield who has tied the knot with her 86-year-old toyboy.

Marjorie Liggins waltzed down the aisle of St James’ Church in Woodhouse after being swept off her feet by dancing partner Norman Camm.

Majorie, who lives at Brunswick Retirement Village in Woodhouse, met Norman when the pair began sequence dancing together and he proposed soon after.

The wedding took just six weeks to plan, with family, friends and staff from Brunswick Village all getting involved.

“We’re feeling really great today, it’s been wonderful,” the groom beamed on Saturday, shortly after exchanging vows with Marjorie, surrounded by their family and friends.

His new bride added: “Absolutely, it’s been every bit as lovely as we hoped it would be.

“To say we started out planning just a small, simple wedding, it’s turned into quite a big one but our family and friends have been wonderfully supportive.”

The bride, a retired tailoress, wore a smart silver-grey dress and coat for the wedding, which was second time round for both, while retired engineer Norman wore a new silver-grey suit.

Marjorie’s matrons of honour were her granddaughter Lyanne and her daughter-in-law Janet and her 75-year-old niece Lilian was bridesmaid.

Norman’s pal Gerald Gunstone, 82, was the best man.

Afterwards the couple celebrated with a wedding lunch and an evening party with 120 guests, before jetting off to Tenerife.
