A Diss couple have celebrated their diamond wedding, with a river cruise in the Netherlands.

Megan and Dennis O’Connell married at St Margaret’s Church, Edgware, on April 17, 1954. Megan, originally from Edgware, Middlesex and Dennis, who lived in Kingsbury, met and married as teenagers, and moved to Diss around 26 years ago.

Mrs O’Connell said: “I can’t believe it has been 60 years since I got married.

“Dennis had to go into national service, so we got engaged when I was 18 and he discovered he had to go to Korea - so he wanted to get married before he went.

“I still love him and see that young person who walked in through the doors that day.”

They have one son, Graham, and three grand children - Jasmine, Morgan, and Leila.

After moving Mrs O’Connell worked in advertising, while Mr O’Connell worked at TW Gaze in Diss.
