Claire and Ronald Moore were married 60 years ago today and are looking forward to celebrating their diamond jubilee. 

It was a pleasant Saturday afternoon in March, 1960 when the couple were joined in matrimony at the Oxide Street Methodist Church. 

Claire said she was given away by her father, and wore a white ballerina length wedding gown, embroidered with a braided tulip design on satin. 

Her bridesmaid was Janet Johnstone who wore a blue satin dress, while John Nicholas was best man. 

The couple were joined at their wedding reception by 140 guests at the GUOOF Hall. 

Claire and Ronald raised two children, Kristine and Steven, and have been blessed with five grandchildren - Amy, Ben, Samantha, Jason and Chelsea, and one great grandchild, Charlie. 

The couple will celebrate their anniversary with family and friends at a get together on Saturday evening.
