You people in the big cities will likely not hear about an interesting local wedding that took place in Courtenay this weekend.

An 80 year old couple (both previously married) had a full wedding at their church.  Edith Brown married Gordon Clark and they will live together in Edith’s home here in Courtenay.

Unusual,  but even more so because the bride was walked down the aisle by her sprightly 102 year old mother Helen, who flew in from Red Deer for the event.

The Pastor who officiated at the wedding said “this is the first time I have ever had the nerve to ask the age of the bride’s Mother”

You can just realize the massive family involved in the reception.  5 generations celebrating a wedding.

Edith thanked her mother for flying to be part of the ceremony and Helen said she had only one request.  “Name the first one after me”
