Kalamunda Reporter - - Look Local -

SHAR­ING the good times and the tough times of life to­gether is part of the se­cret to a long mar­riage, ac­cord­ing to Mor­ris and Pa­tri­cia Ell­son.

The north­ern sub­urbs cou­ple cel­e­brated 64 years of mar­riage at the Kala­munda Ho­tel last month at the very spot they spent their first night as hus­band and wife.

Mor­ris said they had been re­turn­ing to the Hills pub ev­ery year for the past 10 years to mark their an­niver­sary.

“I grew up in Guild­ford and Tr­ish in Caversham and we met when we were lit­tle kids; she was my best mate’s sis­ter,” he said.

“We were mar­ried in Guild­ford at St Matthew’s on May 29, 1954 be­fore be­ing whisked away to the Kala­munda Ho­tel for our hon­ey­moon.

“Back in the ’50s most mar­ried peo­ple went to the ho­tel for their hon­ey­moon be­cause it is such a beau­ti­ful spot with the hills and the trees.

“We’ve been re­turn­ing to the pub ev­ery year for the past decade to rem­i­nisce about our wed­ding day, our time there, and the won­der­ful years we’ve spent to­gether.”
