Conghan, 101, and Sognshi, 103, have been together for almost nine decades, and happily married for 88 years.

They always dreamed of having a wedding photo taken, but when they got married there was not the option.

Recently their dream was made reality by a photo company in their local town of Nanchong in Sichuan and the pair posed up in their wedding finery for the shots.

As with everything related to the big day, the bride was determined it was going to be perfect and was snapped ensuring that her husband looked his best in the white shirt.
