Mr Barker said they al­ways cel­e­brated Valen­tine’s Day, usu­ally with a din­ner to­gether, be­cause they’d been to­gether for 53 years. “We mar­ried rel­a­tively young,” he said. The cou­ple mar­ried at St Mary’s Angli­can Church, West Perth on May 13, 1967.

There will be a pop-up Love Gar­den at the south­ern end of Bay View Ter­race un­til Valen­tine’s Day.

Peo­ple can write down the lo­ca­tion of the birds and place it in a Wish­ing Well out­side At­las Pearls to win an 18-carat rose gold pearl pen­dant val­ued at $500, un­til Fe­bru­ary 15.
