Golden couples partied in style at celebration
Spending 50 years together is reason to celebrate – and here are some more couples who married in 1968 and enjoyed a bumper party in South Lanarkshire Council’s Hamilton headquarters.
We published some of the pictures from the event last week and are delighted to be able to highlight some more.
Hosted jointly by North and South Lanarkshire councils, the happy couples danced the afternoon away as they reminisced about their big day half a century ago.
The provosts of both areas held two receptions for any Lanarkshire couple celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary in 2018.
South Lanarkshire’s Provost Ian Mcallan said: “There is no one formula for a happy marriage – every one is unique and there are different difficulties and joys that each couple faces along the way.
“What we saw at this event, however, is the same truth for all – that it is all about finding that one person who is for you and, with that perfect pairing, a bond is formed that is unshakeable.”
