IT WAS a day of love and family togetherness on Thursday, June 13 as Gwendolyn and Nevile Lovett celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary surrounded by their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.  

The couple were wed on June 12, 1954, at the little seaside suburb of Bulimba in Brisbane marking their special day with a boat cruise along the Pumicestone Passage and then lunch at the Pelican Waters Tavern.  

Their 50th wedding anniversary was celebrated with a cruise along the Noosa River.  

Daughter Tracey said there were 20 who went on the boat cruise.  

“Mum and Dad really loved the day, and it was lovely and sunny.”  

The couple still live independently at 97 and 95 and moved to Coolum in 1990.  

And the secret to such a long and successful marriage, Tracey said was romance.  

“Dad has always said that love makes the heartbeat, and he really is a romantic.”  

The couple received cards from the King and other dignitaries to mark their 70 years of marriage and love.
