Tatura's Keith and Val Morton celebrated their wedding anniversary on October 16.October 25, 2012 1:48pm
Tatura couple Keith and Val Morton (nee Maddox) have enjoyed 64 years of wedded bliss, and celebrated the milestone last week with family on the Gold Coast.
They have two daughters, four grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
Mr and Mrs Morton, who both grew up in Melbourne, were married at St Matthew’s Church Prahran on October 16 1948, honeymooning at Lakes Entrance.
They have lived in Tatura for about 15 months in a detached unit behind their daughter Christine and son-in-law Brian’s house, which is situated on a large block. They said they love the semi-rural lifestyle.
Mr Morton recalled the wedding day vividly. ‘‘It was Caulfield Cup Day and Val’s father, a punter, was horrified when we told him of the day, even threatening not to attend the wedding, but he relented and walked her down the aisle,’’ he said.
‘‘Everything worked out well in the finish, as Val’s father said he wouldn’t have backed the cup winner so he saved money in the long run.’’
