In the autumn of 1948, James Brown met the love 💕 of his life. He was working as a greengrocer for his father when, on his rounds,he saw Vera. This started a whirlwind romance that led to their marriage at a register office in Catford just four months later, on January 7, 1949. Now, as they celebrate their 70th wedding anniversary 💍 94-year-old James remembers it like it was yesterday. “My dad would only allow me to have half a day off for it,” he said. "Before we knew it, we were married. She and I were right for one another.” The couple continued living in London, where they had nine children – the eldest of whom is now 68. Their family has swelled over the years to the point where they now have 18 grandchildren, 22 great-grandchildren and six great-great-grandchildren. The couple celebrated their platinum wedding with several members of their family. Despite bickering occasionally, they still adore each other. “We have our moments where we moan at each other, but we always end up laughing again,” said James. “We love each other very, very much; we still think the world of each other.” Congratulation James & Vera!
