Age is just a number when it comes to love and five couples from a Surrey retirement home proved just that on Friday.

Staff at the Fleetwood Villa Retirement Residence in Surrey held a wedding vow renewal ceremony for five couples who live there. The couples have been together for 30 to 60 years.

Residences, family members, and friends were present to witness the important milestone in the couples lives. In the middle of the room, Henry and Sheila Rathler sat and giggled as they looked at their old wedding photos. The couple have been together for 59 years.
