12:00pm Saturday 14th September 2013 in Harwich and Manningtree News
OVER sixty years ago Eric Barnes stole wife Anne’s heart – and now the happy couple are celebrating their diamond wedding anniversary.
Mr and Mrs Barnes tied the knot in 1953 at St Marys and St Michaels Church, Mistley, when Anne was just 18.
Mrs Barnes said: “I remember the day well.
“I got a taxi with my father down to the church. I had three bridesmaids – my sisters and my husband’s niece."
The couple celebrated their anniversary on Thursday.
