British couple become world's oldest newlyweds

George and Doreen have a combined age of 194

World's Oldest Newlyweds

A British couple has just broken a world record, proving you're never too old to find true love.

They have entered the Guinness Book of World Records as the oldest newlyweds with a combined age of 194.

After a very long courtship, 27 years to be exact, George Kirby, 103, and Doreen Luckie, 91, have finally tied the knot.

The couple got married in Eastbourne on Saturday with close family and friends in attendance. Despite their years, the two still had the 'newlywed glow' and looked very much in love as they kissed on the steps outside the venue.

"It's a bit of a surprise really, after all this time, getting married again," Doreen said. She was married previously but started dating Kirby after becoming a widow.

The two have seven children, 15 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren between them.

Valentine's Day proposal

It took some prodding by his son to make an honest woman out of Doreen before George finally proposed to her this year on Valentine's Day.

Doreen reportedly even had a bachelorette party just a few nights before the wedding, while Kirby's bachelor party had to be cancelled because he suffered a fall in the bathroom just days ago.

A spokesperson for Guinness World Records told the Huffington Post that they are waiting for evidence from the couple before they make the record official.

The current record is held by a French couple who has a combined age of over 190 years when they got married.
