A couple in the UK have discovered that they can still fit into their wedding clothes after 50 years of marriage.

71-year-old Carole-Ann Stanfield and her 74-year-old husband Jim from Staffordshire were married on 1st October 1966.


Half a century later, they were persuaded to try their outfits on after their grand-daughter Hayley suggested it.

Jim had gone to the attic to find family photo albums to show Hayley, and instead found Carole-Ann’s dress.


‘When Hayley discovered we still had our wedding outfits, she said we should try them on to see if they still fit,’ Carole-Ann told Metro.co.uk.

‘Jim went up and dug them out. Hayley insisted we put them on but I said no, they’d been in the loft and they were dusty and smelly,” she said.

‘But she begged and pleaded so we did it for her – we were gobsmacked when we discovered they still fitted perfectly.’
