A couple marking 60 years as husband and wife are set to celebrate in style.
Cyril “Mac” Caseby, 87, and his wife Gladys, 85, met in Aberdeen when Mac’s sister invited Gladys over for tea.
After walking Gladys back to her student nurse accommodation he said there was no denying there was “definitely something magical” between them.
Mac said the secret to their long marriage is due to their commitment to doing everything “in moderation” and added that being married to Gladys has “far exceeded any expectations” he ever had.
He said: “I had come to visit my sister in Aberdeen in 1951 after I finished my time with the RAF and met this pretty nurse who my sister invited over for tea.
“From that night I met her, she ignited the flame in the chapel of my heart that has been burning ever since.”
The two tied the knot on March 22, 1958, at Saughtree Parish Church in the Borders where Mac’s father, Reverend Alexander Caseby, officiated at the wedding.
In celebration, the Kingswells couple, who have two children and two grandchildren, are taking a cruise that will take them from Amsterdam to Antwerp, finishing in Ghent.
